“If you can’t say something nice,
don’t say anything at all.”

and I was again reminded of it the other day

I SHOULD be drinking water right now,
given I’ve been out sick for the last 4 days.
I am not.  Instead, I’m drinking V8 Vfusion
vegetable & fruit juice.
Why? I like the flavor. Why not Kool Aid?

In short:

Are you STILL waiting?

Earlier this afternoon I heard these
