From my “Murphy’s Law” desk calendar archives thanks to Aunt Evelyn, Uncle Pipey, and cousin Nancy:
The Fifth Rule: You have taken yourself too seriously.
Goofy guy’s amen to The Fifth Rule: This morning, an older couple took their dog for a walk around our cul-de-sac. One of our neighbors is a conservative. Since i am a contrarian, the neighbor and i agree on some things and disagree on others. We are good friends. He has a “Trump” sign in his front yard. The woman sees my neighbor at his side yard gate and immediately launches into a tirade against him and his political views. Her husband finally tells her to “let it go,” and she finally does. My neighbor to his credit never said a word. This easily could have happened to a neighbor who is a liberal . What has happened to civility? And that is not a political statement. Wonder what the dog thought?
