    I found this on a cross stitch site -

    The Senility Prayer

    God, grant me
    the senility to
    forget the people
    I never liked anyway,
    The good fortune
    to run into the ones
    that I do and the
    eyesight to tell
    the difference.

    While I love the Serenity Prayer, this one also has a place!

    I used to have this hanging on the side of my cube, all done up in a fancy font. I had a section head come to talk with me and he started reading it (I'm sure thinking it was the "other" prayer) and he then shook his head and told me I was sick!

    'cept I thought it said - the good sense to run-over the ones I don't like ------I am senile. Then I got my glasses and read it AGAIN. lol.

    Star, you are not senile, you are just my kind of woman! Though I won't tell anyone that you aren't senile - esp if you DO run over them, lol!!!!!

    STAR! your problem isn't the senility NOR the presence or absense of good sense...
    It's your eyesight!<not sure why these are supposed to be the golden years... maybe I'll figure that out once the kids leave home? assuming, of course, that they do...>
