Wordy Wednesday - Debrief

I am having fun shadowing our A - to - Z gang.  I'm following so many - they are listed in my Blog Followings - awesome material all around

Here are just two quotes from the news this past month. Consider this a debrief and commentary.
Interpret as you wish

This can be a very mean-spirited town, but you don't have to choose to participate in that. Each of us gets to choose the person we want to be, and the way  we want to be treated, and the way we will treat others - Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson - farewell speech to the State Department.

(my personal opinion and take - classy dude who could only take so much. He was fired, but left with his head held high)


Y'all can stare at your phones all night, but I pull a book out of my purse and suddenly I'm the anti-social one - North Texas comedian Katy Evans. 

(too funny, and too true!)

Happy Wednesday

  2. Yep. I agree with both comments. We don't have to join the crowd. We can live our lives with dignity and do our own thing.

  4. Both of your quotes are terrific.

    The second one is funny... but true. It's endlessly annoying to me when other people stare at their phones during a meal or visit. As much as I'd like to, I wouldn't DREAM of pulling out a book... but maybe I should!

  5. Very true indeed. The last is so true it's funny and pathetic that we've gone down that far.
