I don’t know if they do.

Can you see the ones across the way?

I wonder what they have to say.

I’ll try to squeeze my way around to them.

Be careful…it’s crowded in here.

I’ll be back, if I can see my way clear.

    This particular phrase was used very interesting way by Pausch in his last lecture, which I think every one should read.. (if you like to read it here is link to the excerpts from the book at my blog – hope you would enjoy it)He was suffering from Cancer and was asked to give the last lecture and he started with introducing the Elephant in the room…
