ten times fast

I pick up the pen — the mightier-than-sword pen — to skewer someone or something, and all I can think is what a silly word skewer is.

I mean, say it over and over a few times: Skewer. Skewer. Skewer. Skewer. 

I swear, by the 10th time you say it, you’ll be giggling.

This is a nutty world, and sometimes life turns you upside down. Just when you think it can’t get worse, life hauls you up and lays you lower.

And what you do then — listen very carefully now —

What you do then — you are paying attention, right?

When life knocks you down —

You just stand right back up, look life square in the face —

and skewer it.
