Perhaps I’m dating myself with this reference, but I’d be lying if I said that the film FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF didn’t come into my life at a time when it was not only needed, but appreciated. As an overachieving college student with an irreverent sense of humor, Bueller’s devil-may-care attitude touched a chord in my Type-A little heart. One of my fellow student government officers nabbed a copy of the movie and we screened it for the student body. Ah, the perks of power!
Now, all these years later, when life’s stresses pile up, I find myself quoting the inimitable Ferris. I know I’m not alone because I found several web sites including this one with a random quote generator. http://ferrisbuellerquotes.com/

I do have a test today, that wasn’t a bull**** . It’s on European Socialism. I mean, really, what’s the point? I’m not European. I don’t plan on being European. So, who gives a crap if they’re Socialists? They could be fascist anarchists, it still wouldn’t change the fact that I don’t own a car.
I had a grandmother once…two, actually.
Oh, he’s very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads – they all adore him. They think he’s a righteous dude.
You’re still here? It’s over! …Go home
So, this week, while I’m stressing over deadlines, bills, kids on field trips, family crises and the like, don’t be surprised if I:
- Show up for a Cub’s game (weeks early)
- Spontaneously join a parade float to sing Danke Schoen
- Stay in bed when I should be working
- Strike a pose at an art museum
- Talk my way into a table at an upscale restaurant
- “Borrow” an expensive sports car
