Thoughts on Thoughts for a Bad Hair Day by Mary Ellen Edmunds:

• “Decide what a beautiful day it’s going to be before checking the weather.” Message: Delusion is the true path to happiness. And soggy pants.

• “If everyone in the world would gain 10 pounds, we’d all be closer together.” Let’s hear it for leading the way, America.

• “When you’ve got all the merit badges, there’s not much worth sticking around for.” Message: Success and camaraderie are overrated.

• “Pure gold fears no fire.” Pure gold has no emotions, you silly twit. Maybe if you’d quit likening yourself to anthropomorphized precious metals, you’d understand why your skin is so thick and coarse.

• “Tell someone you plan to love them for a long, long time.” Message: Set someone up for disappointment by promising them things you have no way of knowing whether you’ll be able to come through on.

• “You cannot hide a change of heart.” True. Unless you wear a shirt over the large, disfiguring scars on your chest and abdomen.

• “Always be at least an inch nicer than is expected.” OK, but that’s going to require some pretty low expectations from a lot of women.

• “New friends don’t happen that often.” Message: You should feel seriously sad for this lady.
