    How true. And a bad habit to break. I am working on it.
    Kind words are a choice.

    “Just don’t give me your ’do, dear.”

    And on all those notes, I’m off to dream of snarky carpish harpists. ’Night, all:-)

    I wish Alex would give herself a new ‘do… she’s had that one since middle school, I think.

    Doctor’s oath: First do no harm. Makeover artist’s oath: First, harm no ’do.

    That’s a great way to say “You’ve said a hurtful thing, but I won’t take it personally.”
    I love it! Rock the snark! I’ll use that on my husband when he doesn’t realize how attitudinal he’s getting.

    “Attitudinal” – that’s a good one, too!

    Reading this reminds me how basically nice and kind most characters in this strip actually are. With the exceptions of REALLY bad guys and creeps and jerks (personally, I put JJ and Zeke at the top of that category) we see them being nice to each other. Well, the Red Idiot is pretty thoughtless, but even BD has learned to be kind.

    Just found a website for a new company relating to kindness —it will be interesting seeing how the concept works.

    I hope Alex’s babies aren’t born with little braidy things in their hair.

    @diggitt I checked out that site, and while it is not all “up and running” yet, it’s an interesting and laudable concept. My local newspaper often runs letters to the editor thanking people for acts of kindness. Sometimes they were nameless strangers who appeared, helped out, then disappeared; other times they’re public figures, teachers, or others who can be identified. I think people do want wider channels for the expression of gratitude, appreciation, supportiveness, and so on. We are flooded every day with evidence of man’s inhumanity; this morning all news channels I looked at were simultaneously delving into the inhumanity of the Dorner case in California. We all need relief from that, and reinforcement of the fact that the vast majority of us really are kind and caring!

    Alex’s sweetness with her grandma reminds me of my own college student, who also had to deal with a divorce in her childhood and one disappointing parent, but who has blossomed into a gracious, loving young woman who reaches out to help others (including that parent!).
