Don’t buy Royal Doulton if all you can afford is that stuff in the Dollar Store. If you wait long enough, maybe one of your elderly relatives will leave you her good china. If she doesn’t leave it to you, it’s probably because she forgot you existed. This goes to show you that you should always remind your elderly female relatives that you are alive, even the annoying ones.
On the other hand, if you have money, spend it. You will be helping thousands of factory workers, shopkeepers, accountants and lawyers in their quest to make a living and send their kids to Ivy League schools.
If you are going to become a humor writer, first make sure you are actually funny. Writing humor that isn’t funny is kind of pointless, and it annoys people when they read something hoping to laugh and all they can do is roll their eyes. Rolling your eyes isn’t good because they could get stuck, which is potentially very embarrassing, especially if you have to explain to the doctor that they got that way because you were reading something that wasn’t funny.
