A wise man once asked me if I had ever considered the wink and smile approach.
I thought he was kidding. I winked, smiled, paused like I was listening and quietly put it back in its box.
Later that year …
I started to pay closer attention, after opening my big (but caring) mouth, and realized that the lucky recipient of my wisdom would exhibit a version of the wink and smile but … in all actuality, they were plotting my death. :)=
Duh, for the umpteenth time.
It won’t be easy, taking on the wink and smile, but if people really, really, really want my advice, they can give me a call, make an appointment, pay $75 for the session and we can all skip away blowing bubbles.
