"Give a guy enough rope and he'll hang himself"

I worked with an old man a long time ago, he must be 100 by now. He was in his 80’s when I worked with him, and sharp as could be. Strong looking too…he had been a boxer as a young man, and he said that boxing put him in such shape back then there was no way he could ever not be in good shape. Whatever he had done for the OSS during WWII, he wouldn’t talk about it much, except to say he had had a German name.
Either that or he was just full of shit.
Which he wasn’t.
Anyway, I remember him telling me one time that "in public or in private, every day we write our own epitaph."
I know I’ve written mine a few times.
