How Not to Win Friends and Influence People 

by Paul Charles

Don’t waste your bullets, kids
You’ve got to take shots you know you can hit
Or at least
Shots you’re reasonably sure you can hit, but really
What I’m trying to say is that
In peoples’ minds there’s a space
Roughly comparable to a field of ice
A plane on which personalities and ideas coexist
And if you try to push something more massive than yourself
You’re going to be the one
To slide backward


Paul Charles is doing his best to make his few remaining days count forever.
