Happy Birthday, Thomas Jeffrey Hanks (born July 9, 1956)!
“That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road, and when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of town. And when I got there I thought maybe I’d just run across Greenbow County. And I figured since I run this far, maybe I’d just run across the great state of Alabama. And that’s what I did; I ran clear across Alabama.
No particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there I figured since I’d gone this far, might as well turn around and keep on going. And when I got to another ocean I figured since I’d gone this far, might as well just turn back and keep on going. When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry I ate. And when I had to go… you know… I went.”
