April A-Z : How to be Good
How To Be Good: a somewhat sarcastic, almost real, almost practical, randomly chosen, honestly presented & foolishly believed list :
01/ Smile at strangers — if that person smile back even if it's a bit fake and somewhat bewildered, then fine, if they give you an angry snarl or start flipping you off or if they look like they might want beat you up, run away, quick!
02/ Agree with everything someone says even if you don't agree with them — certainly agreeing is a respectable way to talk to someone but if that someone has very bad views of things, do disagree unless of course, that person is threatening bodily harm, then you really must agree
03/ Make friends with people you don't like — some say your enemy is your friend and in a way, they are because they bring out the worst in you but they might help you become a better person simply because in their view, you're bad so why not be good to this person?
04/ Have manners — always remember your manners and be polite because you're an educated being and not a monkey which probably might offend the monkeys so let's pretend these aren't well-mannered monkeys, shall we?
05/ Be kind — always be kind because being a jerk is just too much work & no one likes a jerk
06/ Swear quietly — Mark Twain said, "When angry, count four. When very angry, swear." Sometimes you really must swear because there is no other way to express your dismay or anger, so swear but do it quietly and away from people
07/ Laugh — when all else fail, just laugh, because laughing is better than crying, they might think you're crazy or under the influence of drugs or alcohol but at least, you won't appear too rude
Please note: This list is meant to be fun and not to be taken seriously unless you want to.
