The First Rule of Holes

February 21st, 2008

I’m sure I am the last person to hear this term, but it’s a gem.

The First Rule of Holes is that if you find yourself in one, stop digging. It sounds so simple- I think the hard part may be understanding that you are actually in one, or maybe the urge to tunnel away from problems is just irresistible.

Either way, the term is going into my lexicon.
