Jack’s Winning Words 9/27/16
“You’ve got to take the bitter with the sour.”  (Sam Goldwyn)  S.G. is famous for malaprops, misusing words.  Maybe it’s not a malaprop in some cases.  You may know of people who have all the bad luck, bitter, followed by sour.  A stranger came up to a friend of mine recently with a tale of woe.  “I just don’t know where to turn.”  On the spur of the moment she gave the number of a pastor she knew.  Both the 1% and the 99% can have bitter and sour lives.    ;-)  Jack

FROM BLAZING OAKS:  This calls to mind Jim Carrey's (actor) admonition: "I wish every person could experience having enough wealth to go anywhere they ever wanted, do everything the wished to do, buy anything they coveted, in order to know that its not the answer."  Like you say, both the 1% and 99% can have dark, unsatisfying lives. And some never have "enough" to make them happy.  Blessed are those who are happy, and they know it! In spite of how life unfolds...====JACK:  Speaking about money and malaprops...A fool and his money are some party...or, malaprop hymns...Gladly the cross-eyed bear...and O kinky turtle.

FROM TARMART REV:  ...even the ones in between... ====JACK:  Even that person with a tale of woe who came up to my friend had a "sweet" moment when someone listened and responded positively.
