Flirt with controversy but never marry her

In the last 32 years I have realized that the way we combine the words make all the difference between diplomacy and terrorism. Simply put, years have taught me to flirt with ‘controversy` but never marry her.

Instead of asking –

“Do people in your country fart a lot?”

I ask –

“Is your country’s cuisine fart-friendly?”

Instead of saying –

“You spend a lot of time shopping and wasting money.”

I say –

“What all would your parents have bought for their house if we had given them the money we spent today?”

Instead of saying –

“I want to have sex and beer tonight.”

I say –

“You look pretty – is that the new lip gloss?”

If you have been as diplomatic, do leave a comment…after all there is no end to learning.
