Smith snoozes, loses

For the umpteenth time in as many weeks, a momentary hesitation on the part of Rev. Smith caused him to miss out on an opportunity that was instead snatched away by someone more alert, on the ball, and all-too-ready to point out to Smith the connection between his failure to act quickly and his subsequent loss of fortune. This morning at 11:16am, while Smith was hemming and hawing over which of the two remaining donuts in the break room he would eat, overweight coworker Morton Dewey casually walked in, took both donuts, and walked out, commenting to Smith in passing, “You snooze, you lose.”
