What I Think

I think if you wash all the laundry and fold it, you shouldn't put it away that same day.
If you pick the berries, you should eat the pie.
When you go to a restaurant, you should order whatever you want.




If you read books, you should show them off.
Keep every issue of your favorite magazine.
If you are lucky enough to get paid sick days from work you should take them.
Take them all.


If you grow flowers you should bring them in and look at them.
Often.
Everybody should collect at least one thing.
You should have blueberry pancakes and bacon for dinner at least once in your life.



If you have a pet you should talk to them everyday.
Tell them how beautiful they are.
They do understand you.





If it is your birthday you should do whatever you want.
After all, you aren't just another year older.
You are another year better.
