Last night someone asked me "How's it going?"
And I responded, "Not so bad it hurts, not so good it pays."
And there it was: an instant classic.
No one ever wonders where these lines come from, but they come from me. They come from people like me. And I'm worried that this great thing I said will be lost to the masses so, for the record, I said it first.
I know it is petty to lay claim like this, but I am petty. I have to be, I don't have anything. I don't even have friends that I like. Credit is all I am going to get.
The only other alternative I have is using the line in real life and then quoting myself afterward:

It is no worse than what Twitter is -- a copyright center for egomaniacs.
