Life is a minefield full of ambushes. We are constantly getting caught off guard by thoughts, words and circumstances. However, the mark of a smart person is someone who tries not to make the same mistake twice. (We all do that, BTW!) So, as a public service, here’s a quick and dirty guide to making the wise choice the next time something happens.
The next time somebody tells you that someday machines are going to go total Terminator and take over the world, remind them just how effective Autocorrect is.
The next time somebody talks about how nice it will be when everything gets back to normal, think about how comfortable your pajamas feel.
The next time somebody’s Eagerly Offended by a book, a cartoon character or a dead European, laugh your ass off and get on with your life as if nothing’s changed — because nothing has.
The next time you think you should ask a woman when the baby’s due – don’t!
The next time you think you’ve got the only dysfunctional family on the planet, open a bottle of wine and ask your neighbour about her mother-in-law.
The next time you think you’re smart, remember your old friend algebra and try to solve (x2 + y2) – (x + y) = 3. That’ll teach you some humble.
The next time you’re having a bad day, take a marker and put comic faces on all the eggs in the fridge. You’ll be surprised how much better it makes you feel.
The next time you’re walking around and have an uncontrollable itch somewhere below your bellybutton, remember: cellphones!
The next time you’re mind wanders beyond your current relationship, take a good hard think about how you look naked.
The next time someone says, “You can do anything you set your mind to!” keep in mind you still haven’t figured out the difference between Auto Cook and Auto Reheat on the microwave.
The next time you think it’s a pain in the ass to wear a mask, just imagine how uncomfortable a ventilator would be.
