According to mythology, Pandora opened the box (actually it was a jar) containing all the evils of the world when she was told to never do that. As soon as she opened it, they all escaped, allowing evil to reign. It was impossible to undo what had been done.
History has shown us that the Pandora’s Box illustration is almost always used as a negative illustration of someone or something messing up.
Well, I’ve discovered that it can also be the perfect way to describe a positive occurrence.
I met with a bunch of men this morning and threw them something they probably weren’t expecting. And, surprise!, surprise!, they swung at the pitch and knocked it out of the park!
At this point, all I can say is:
• Daryl, Jeff and staff… sleep in on Wednesday mornings from now on!
• What we let out of the box might just change Wilmington!
• Dang, fellows! You’re impressive!
