So we were sitting around the Christmas dinner table and the talk turned to opening lines from literature. Everybody started quoting the usual suspects: Mrs. Dalloway, Chaucer, García Márquez, Dickens, 1984, medieval Portuguese epics. Then the Stallion, a business major, looked innocently up at the ceiling and intoned: "Accounting is the language of business."
Brought the house right down, I'll tell you.
Merry Christmas to everyone who is celebrating it.
