Thanks, Dad!


I think my dad was trying to cheer me up in the midst of a stressful move by sending me this quote...

"“If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers,” Dorothy Parker once wrote, “the second-greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of ‘The Elements of Style.’ The first-greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.”"

Of course, if the aspiring writer knows any badass Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu moves they may disarm you and stomp on your neck.

That is a great quote :)

No one thought to shoot me (whoops!), and I'm pretty sure I heard Strunk whimper at me from the grave this one time during the construction of a particularly windy sentance.

Perhaps I could just drink? I'll give it a try and report back.
