This I Believe

I believe Juliet was better matched with Mercutio. Romeo’s wit just doesn’t hold a candle to theirs.

I believe a good score on the SAT is important, but not more so than a really nice baked potato.

I believe ‘issueful’ and ‘issueless’ should be words. In fact, they should be official classifications indicated on a person’s driver’s license.

I believe true friendship means never having to end an electronic sentence with ?.

I believe a preference for sisal rugs is really just sublimated hostility.

I believe that the whole post partum situation was badly designed. Mother Nature overlooked the impracticality of making newborns desperately dependent just when their mothers are physically and emotionally ausgemated*

I believe that as a civilization, our humanity is evolved by Bruce Springsteen
