Are You Proud Of Yourself?


Go ahead.
Here's your opportunity.
You've been waiting to embarrass me publicly...
For years.
Haven't you?
Well...
You go ahead.
Make a fool of yourself!

And keep this in mind...
Dishonesty will eventually,
Come and bite you back...
When you least expect it!
So say anything about me you wish.
I could care less!

'All I was going to say is that I think,
You are a fantastic, considerate...
And a loving human being.'

NOW you want to be honest.
Truthful and sincere!
I don't get you at all!

Who put you up to this?
Who told you to say those things...
And I would show every tooth in my head!
Well...
It worked!
Are you proud of yourself?
Are you happy now?

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
