Some people are born knowing and don't forget. When my son was playing basketball in an "important" game, he took up not running down the floor when everybody else did. Being his coach, I panicked and asked him what he was doing. He told me there's no point in running down there . . . they're just going to come right back." And then there's one my my cancer doctors who, after listening to me whine about needing to lose weight, told me to go out, buy a dozen chocolate donuts, and eat them all.
