I think the world needs a little more of it. 'Nough said. I will not go into the details of the deceit, lying and flat out inconsideration that has prompted this. But really, I'm easy to please. I just ask for honesty. I don't even mind so much if it's something I don't want to hear (well, not ALL the time) but at least have the decency to be up front with me, so I know where we stand. Thank you and goodnight.
