We'll be moving soon...

Where? I don't know.

When? Couldn't tell you.

Then why, Eddie, have you said you're moving? How can you know this?

Well, I'll tell you: We just ordered two boxes of checks and a couple rolls of return address labels. Over the course of our marriage, purchasing checks has always seemed to prompt a move.

We bought checks when we were first married, though we only stayed in our first apartment for a few months. We stayed in our second apartment for a year, and just as we finished off the original checks, we ordered more. And moved at the drop of a hat three weeks later when we found a much better place.

But, we had just ordered those new checks, and why put them to waste? So, we used those for the next year and a half. Then we ordered new checks, and within another two or three months we bought our house.

The equation is simple. New checks = move to new address.

That is on the order of if you give up holding dinner for someone and say prayer, they will show up; If you bring a book, you don't have long to wait at the doctor's; if you take a shower, the phone will ring - but on a much grander scale. You are masters!

Yes, Barbara, you make a valid point.

But you forgot one: Get a hamburger at the drive-thru, and all the traffic lights turn green.
