You can observe a lot by watching. --Yogi Berra
1. No one thinks funerals are fun. And yet many people find it necessary to state "I hate funerals." Nobody goes to funerals for the food and booze. On this topic, Yogi Berra says, always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't go to yours.
2. Dogs and cats are not supposed to be alike, however there are dogs that are more like cats and dogs that are more like dogs. Also there are cats that are more like dogs and cats that are more like cats. This is not logical, but it is often true.
3.I think it unreasonable that to open a new cello-wrapped box of tea I need to actually resort to using a knife.
4. Disappointment lurks around every corner. The trick is to keep expectations fairly low and be prepared to be amused by the mundane.
5. The grocery store is only very slightly more entertaining after a few beers.
