A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre Museum.
After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings, and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas.
When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, “Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.”
(See if you have De Gaulle to send this on to someone else. I sent it to you because I figured I had nothing Toulouse.)
“Cigarettes are pretty much like cats: perfectly harmless unless you put one in your mouth and try to set fire to it.”
Thought for the day
“Don’t hang out with angry people; don’t keep company with hotheads. Bad temper is contagious—don’t get infected.” (Proverbs 22:24-25 MSG)
Is anger contagious? Yes. If you are serious about changing an imbedded, habitual lifestyle of inappropriate anger, then you need to start hanging out with other people who know how to manage their anger. The methods we use to express our anger are learned. Since they’re learned, they can be unlearned. Parents, every time you blow up and lose your cool, you’re modeling inappropriate anger to your kids. You’re teaching, and they’re learning.
