Class… and a baby down the well

         Today I have been thinking about numerous little things, all in different corners of my mind. I am so introspective today, see… I wonder what happened to our country. Do you all remember when our “famous” Americans were these classy people? What happened to us, I mean we all seem to lack what they had. Even the harlots had an air of class back in the day… but that is neither here nor there. I just mainly want to leave you with this great quote of Lemony Snicket’s I found:

‘Entertaining a notion, like entertaining a baby cousin or entertaining a pack of hyenas, is a dangerous thing to refuse to do. If you refuse to entertain a baby cousin, the baby cousin may get bored and entertain itself by wandering off and falling down a well. If you refuse to entertain a pack of hyenas, they may become restless and entertain themselves by devouring you. But if you refuse to entertain a notion—which is just a fancy way of saying that you refuse to think about a certain idea—you have to be much braver than someone who is merely facing some blood-thirsty animals, or some parents who are upset to find their little darling at the bottom of a well, because nobody knows what an idea will do when it goes off to entertain itself.’
