Bo Johnson won first prize in the decathlon at the 1992 Olympic Games. As is the custom, his wife Judy was asked to present the wreath to the victor. It was Bo’s first time in the Olympics, so he didn’t know what to do with the wreath and just flung it over his arm! Immediately, a voice from the stands shouted, “Judy’s garland goes somewhere over the brain, Bo!”

And the undaunted Scarlett said:

BRAVE! BRAVE! Two dozen plus two athletes lined up to present the garland amidst a crowd of one hundred forty four onlookers. THe athletes were cheering and laughing at Bo’s mistake but the onlookers were not so gay. In other words, there were only TWENTY-SIX SMILES A GROSS TO SEE. *

Oh, groan, she can’t leave well enough alone. See you soon, Scarlett

*Just so you’ll know I’m a player.
