“The essential can be detrimental.”
-Oh boy, number 67 of Hobart Grimshaw’s
Bromides. Listen and learn to live!
-I don’t deny that I’ve culled proverbs etc
from books, from friends, the Net, Bible.
-Guides life! What do you do?
-Just a good heart, that’s all. What’s that part
of Bible? Don’t worry about what to say, I’ll
help you when the time comes!
-I like your simple rephrasing, Lil. The hens in the
barnyard would stop pecking to listen.
-Uh huh? Well they wouldn’t listen to your
Jiffy Guide to Silly-ass Living.
-O ye of little faith!
-I’m still getting it, staying on the wavelength!
-Hey if the speaker for United Nations suddenly died and they tabbed you to go on, you’d be a chattering wreck!
-And you’d stride in bold as brass.
-Bet your ass! I’d just open my mouth.
-And knock the international scene back fifty years!
-Thrust it forward through real faith, not ticky-tacky.
-Well, harmless as these daydreams are, Dear, I gotta go back to what they pay me for. Anyway, enjoy your belfry!
