Old/Wise/Young/Stupid

To be old and wise, you must first be young and stupid.

One of the best quotes I’ve heard all month.

Maybe I like it because my days of being young and stupid are rapidly running out.

***

There was once a man who was born without eyebrows.

A perk he enjoyed was to never making it onto one of those embarrassing candid camera shows, because he simply doesn’t exhibit the kind of utterly-caught-off-guard, surprised expressions that the producers usually looked for.

Otherwise, he led a pretty normal life.

It did occurred to him, once or twice, to have eyebrows drawn on. (Any permanent inking, on the other hand, was out of the question because he could not imagine having to commit to an eyebrow shape for the rest of his life.)

But then he thought, “Meh. I can do without.” And that was that.
