Hi, NYCindie! >slightly loud cheek smooch<
Wise? Ha! I'm a wise ass. You know that.
My only kernal of wisdom is ... "Don't be too afraid to be a little bit nuts."
"Nuts" here is interchangable with: weird, odd, different, freaky, risk-taking, risk avoiding, ... or normal, conventional, standard issue.
No, scratch all of that. Replace all of those with "yourself".
That's it. And even I can't do that! So I'm a wise ass instead.
