My best friend and I were discussing current events and the rash of gruesome “zombie-like” attacks fueled by the drug “bath salts” came up. And he said:
“As a purveyor of beautiful bath salts, I have to think, ‘Is this something else for me to worry about?'”
I tried to explain that the drug in question was not made of actual bath salts and that people were using the term with quotation marks around it, and he came back with:
“Zombies are not scrupulous in their use of quotation marks, Karen.”
And those are words to live by.
Would you be willing to make your Sunday evening chats a group call? I feel like I need this sort of wisdom in my life right now.
