Dorothy Parker used to wake up and sharpen her tongue. I on the other hand, sharpened my tongue and forgot to do the same with my brain.
Normally if I get an idea for a blog, I’ll make a quick quip on Twitter using my readers there as a litmus test for the fodder you read here. The other day, trying to be witty, I awoke a cleaning giant.

Yeah, the ol’ lumberjack could have come back with an equally snarky, sarcastic sounding tweet, but instead was the bigger person; literally and figuratively.
Never pick a fight with a clean lumberjack.
What tweets or blog entries do you regret?
