Dad had a great remark today:
“Just because someone stands on their head doesn’t mean you have to kiss their ass.”
Context: we were leaving Barnes & Noble in Crystal Lake. Dad couldn’t find a journal that was both cheap enough and not made in China. He observed, “Some of the ones made in China were more expensive.”
“These things don’t always make sense,” I said.
His responded, well, quoteably.
Not sure when I’d use that one again, but you can be soure I’ll be looking for opportunities.
