I’ve been struggling trying to catch back up with these two posts a day and I have hit a wall of sorts. The only thing I can think of and can’t get out of my mind is Billy Joel and Glass Houses, one of his first big hit albums. So, don’t go criticizing anyone when you can’t take the same criticism. Now lets not worry about any thing negative… because you may be right, I may be CRAZY!

It was beautiful, a crystal bell. He gave it to her to add to her collection of bells and hoped it would be a nice surprise when he came back from his business trip. But he was shocked when she began to inspect the bell very closely. She began to fire back question after question at him, “What was the name of the store where you got it? How much did it cost? Was it certified?”
He sighed and turned to her saying, “I don’t know. Don’t you know you’re not supposed to look a gift horse in the mouth?”

He knew a lot. He was always giving advice and answers to everyone. Trouble was he didn’t know quite as much as he thought he did. One night at a dinner with him and a girlfriend. She mentioned her car had a ticking noise and he began to talk. He talked at length about how he could fix it. After dinner they went outside. He did some work under the hood. Then she went to start it up and it wouldn’t even turn over. After two hours he gave up and blamed it on a malfunctioning computer component. But, when she got it repaired finally, at a garage, they told her he had broken a belt and disconnected the battery. Not exactly a car wizard.
