You. We know *you* are vice-free, dear Daily Post reader. But, or perhaps we should say, “butt,” others around you and in your life are riddled with vices: they smoke; they eat too much celery; they hog the covers; they can’t keep their hands out of the office candy bowl. Which vice or bad habit can you simply not abide in others? Photographers, artists, poets: show us VICE.

When I gave up smoking, I got worried. I had just given up my last true vice. If I had to do any negotiating with God (“Hey, God? If you get me out of this mess I’ll give up … “) I had nothing to work with. I drink coffee, but that’s not a vice. That’s food. I don’t drink alcohol and I’m not addicted to drugs (dependency on blood pressure medication does not count).
We’ve been living in a hive, three generations of family packed together. Not as tight as sardines, but tight enough. Each of us has learned to (1) Not sweat the small stuff, small being loosely defined as “not worth fighting about,” (2) To be extremely wary of casting stones, since they have a nasty habit of returning — boomerang-like — to whack you solidly on the skull
Just ONE little thing. Please, please don’t just leave your laundry in the washer and dryer. Finish your laundry and leave the machines clear for those others of us who need to cleanse our own washables. Thank you. We really appreciate your attention to this matter.
This has been a message from your sponsor. We now resume the regularly scheduled program, already in progress.
