Opportunity

Opportunity: A favorable occasion for grasping a disappointment.

2005 Update: The concurrence of a desire, the desired and a means for joining the two. For example, a thirsty traveler, an oasis in the desert and a stealthy cannibal.

Opportunity, n. Something known to knock, and on occasion, leave a flaming bag of excrement at the door.

Hey Doug,
i can't think of anything witty. Nonetheless will be honest at the cost of sounding trite. Great definition. Nice always to have you on my blog.

Regards,

Sunil.

Doug said...

dj, I have no idea what you're talking about but I hear you give away free iPods on your site. Everyone go to dj's site.

Karma, thanks, as always for boiling it down. If I'd known you were on the menu, I wouldn't have had the shrimp.

Sunil, thanks for stopping back by. I only have one witty thought per day, right after I hit "publish"

Mr. Gnat, I refer you to Bierce's definition.
