    What? No, we need more people who can teach you how to suck it up! Life never promised you a rose garden.

    …but kudos to the NY Times. Human interest stories always welcome.

    My sister put her hand on my shoulder and said Nope. They’re pretty hard.

    Come to me, Pig. I’ll console you with my bear hands. (And then consume you. Heh heh heh)

    Sorry, but my favourite road signs these days are either “No Left Turn” or “Hard Right Turn Ahead”. But if a Guillotine is in use nearby and the road results in a steep decline, the sign “Stop Ahead” would be useful indeed.

    “Merge Left”, and “NO Right turn” makes SO MUCH MORE SENSE nowadays.

    Soft shoulders…ok…but I’m conflicted about strong arms.

    The sign said “35 ahead”. There were 4 of us in the car, so we got through there pretty fast. – Steven Wright

    Pig is just an old softie anyway.

    Still, i would encourage more courage.

    Yes, we need more of those. We also need people to tell us that even though life may be rough, with enough perseverance and determination, we could actually succeed

    That is very similar to an Archies comic strip from years ago. There was a sign – ‘Soft Shoulders’ just like that one, and one of the guy characters rested his head on one of the gals. I forget who, it was many years ago.
