b. you grab it and return it to them right away
2. You are on a girls trip to Vegas and you are hit on by a very famous celebrity?

b. you point him in the direction of your hotel room, slip your key in his pocket, and sing the Jenga commercial,
“You take a block from the bottom and put it on top…je-je-je-jenga jenga je-je-je-jenga jenga!”
3. You see your ex with his new lover, a flighty bimbo 30 years his junior
a. you kick him in the “protein pendulum”
b. you remember the Dalai Lama’s quote, “The rarest form of human strength is the ability to keep your heart open when you’re really mad” and you dig deep, summon Grace, say thanks, and walk the other way.
As Thomas Paine said, “Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us.”
