Real quick thoughts
- I don’t mind being a celebrity, although sometimes I wish my groupies would help me fold my sheets at the laundromat.
- Before I die, I want to see how sausage is made.
- If you capture everyone’s hearts, are you obligated to release at least some?
If you’re trying to project a devil-may-care attitude, you should never show up on a blind date with a lawyer holding prenuptial agreement.

Are you, like me, quiet and solitary? If so, you’ll understand how annoying it is when people badger me with bothersome questions like: “Why were you staring in my window?” “Suspect number three, would you please turn to your left?” And of course, “Are you hiding anything illegal in your lower intestine?”
