    Indian Summer

    In youth, it was a way I had To do my best to please, And change, with every passing lad, To suit his theories. But now I know the things I know, And do the things I do; And if you do not like me so, To hell, my love, with you!

    For You, From One Who's Tried It

    Résumé Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give; Gas smells awful; You might as well live.  - by the incomparable Mrs. Dorothy Parker Thanks, Dottie!
