On Practicality

by Jeph Johnson

My mantra of living logically:

"it's not who's right, it's what's right"

...can backfire in a relationship.

Living practically says:

"Don't worry about what's right.

If you are right, keep quiet."


Author's Notes/Comments: 


paraphrased from "On Marriage" by Ogden Nash


"On Marriage"
by Ogden Nash


To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up.
