Plain talk

My mother always said to us “if you can’t say anything good don’t say anything at all”. Well now that’s a tough sell sometimes. I have a fairly short fuse although it has lengthened as I have aged and matured. My inside voice does occasionally make an outside appearance — ok — maybe it’s more than occasionally. I prefer to call a spade a spade and this has gotten me into hot water more than once.

Now in this age of political correctness that can be an issue. I love what the CBC comedy shows get away with but wonder why it is only comedians or very young children that can now “get away” with saying something obvious and plain. We should be sensitive and culturally appropriate but sometimes ….

When I get really old and cranky (I can hear my kids saying “you are already”) I’m going to revert back to saying what’s on my mind in plain terms.

Can you imagine this sign in Canada? Someone would file a complaint that we were discriminating against the elderly! I love it!
