While drastically different from Bill Maher’s segment “New Rules”, I have been doing a lot of interpersonal thinking and examining recently. As a result, I have come up with a few new rules of my own, which of course are going to be more like the Pirate Code, a set of guidelines. In no particular order, they are:
- Take your birthday off from whatever job you work, you will need the day off as you should always see the sunrise on your birthday. On the beach would be best, but any sunrise will do. This is the time to think about what you want your year to be, not Jan 1st.
- When available, try to eat lunch in a park. If you can find one with few benches and a lake, then you have hit a home run. At a minimum, you just need a place to park, or a place to sit.
- Don’t order coffee from Starbucks, try a nice American owned place such as WaWa or go to a local shop, Dunkin Donuts if you must. Hey I like their coffee, just not the $$ leaving the country!
