Two little old ladies were attending a rather long service at their church. One leaned over and whispered, "My butt is going to sleep." Her friend leaned over and said, "I know. I heard it snore three times."
So, the day begins with a little laughter and at whose expense? Some poor little lady who has the winds something fierce and doesn't seem to realize it. This is, however, humor and not gossip because it isn't a true story about someone. Harmless in everyway and completely inoccuous. Gossip on the other hand may seem harmless but to the contrary may be very damaging.
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.Eleanor Roosevelt seems to have been a very wise woman. Much of what we attribute to her makes heaps plenty sense. I have found these words echoing in my head in many instances when a conversation degrades and turns to a discussion about another person.
