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.
