I’m going to tell you something my Uncle Mike once told me.
If you want to know who’s responsible for most of your problems, take a good
long look in the mirror.
If you could kick the person most responsible for
your problems, you probably wouldn’t be able to sit down for a month.
Painful, in my case, but true – and a lesson I have to relearn from time to
