It is better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression that you are stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

Life lived in seconds creating moments are best shared with someone,If your doing it alone for your sake just putter cause if you slip there can be alot of damage ;)

Once upon a night not so clear becomes so very clear

If a nod smiles,If a notion makes you say hello ...nod your notion?
If a smile distracts you go wit that smile just remember to look into her eyes
If he is anal in your mind then wipe that smile off your face
If she is anal use *cottonelle* it;s soft an easy

Once upon a thought no carpe' denim take your time and look into their eyes
Every now and angain batteries run out,wind as much as you want if you have time

Every second becomes an hour past and.....

Life is for living,finding Love is ... many things *smiles* fade to dark...it happens
Every second n counting

I like these two variations:

"Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish and he can get away for the whole weekend."

or

"Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.
Set the man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life."
