You know that old cliche, if it isn't broke, don't fix it? Well, today that theme cropped up around every corner, and I couldn't help but wonder what life was trying to tell me. Aside from the obvious: that if you do something really well, and people continually tell you how great they think what you are doing is, don't compromise that greatness. And especially don't do it out of some strange need to get things done more quickly and more shoddily. There's nothing in the world worse than something that's going to fall apart ten minutes after you put it together. (ahem, Chinese toy manufacturers...)
I really thought this was common sense, but as many times as it came up in my life today, I had to wonder. Is fixing unbroken things going to become part of this super cool world we live in filled with rude service personnel who don't think they should have to serve anyone and snarky bill collectors who brutally patronize you for being late with your Verizon bill, but then go home and scream at T-mobile because they can't afford to pay their mobile bill on time?
If anything, the above two paragraphs should completely showcase my mood, and explain why this blog post has been stopped: here.
(almost... on to bigger and happier things tomorrow. Promise. Oh and for the record, G.I. Joe is NOT broken, nor is he drowning. He's taking a water nap!)
Jennifer Melzer spent the majority of her life as a writer denying she actually liked to write romance, only to wake up one morning and discover that every single tale she'd ever written had somehow revolved around the heart. She has since given into the whim, spinning yarns of love and firmly believing that everyone deserves a happy ending.
She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her husband and daughter, but dreams nightly she is laying on the beach watching the stars fall over the Atlantic Ocean.
