I wish I could get myself a lasso and a little pinto pony.

If I had a rope and a pony, I’d round up all the people I am worried about right now—including old people in nursing homes, tiny little people the size of a raspberry with a spinal cord, people looking for jobs, people thinking of changing jobs, people with health problems, people with bank statements that don’t balance, people with too much to do and too little time to do it, students who have too few points and too little semester left . . .

I’d round them all up and put them in my little corral and worry about them all together in one big herd instead of one at a time at all hours of the day and night.

That’s what I’d do if I had a lasso and a little pinto pony.
