"Congratulations! You're not perfect! It's ridiculous to want to be perfect anyway. But then, everybody's ridiculous sometimes, except perfect people. You know what perfect is? Perfect is not eating or drinking or talking or moving a muscle or making even the teensiest mistake. Perfect is never doing anything wrong – which means never doing anything at all. Perfect is boring! So you're not perfect! Wonderful! Have fun! Eat things that give you bad breath! Trip over your own shoelaces! Laugh! Let somebody else laugh at you! Perfect people never do any of those things. All they do is sit around and sip weak tea and think about how perfect they are. But they're really not one-hundred-percent perfect anyway. You should see them when they get the hiccups! Phooey! Who needs 'em? You can drink pickle juice and imitate gorillas and do silly dances and sing stupid songs and wear funny hats and be as imperfect as you please and still be a good person. Good people are hard to find nowadays. And they're a lot more fun than perfect people any day of the week."
Smile. Damn, laughs at full lung. Takes you a laughter to tears. Show up in your teeth. Even if they aren't white or straight. Even if you have braces. Even if you laugh when your eyes narrow, you have dimples. Broke up, act as if there was no tomorrow. Forget everything, let your problems aside and enjoy yourself. Live the moment. Take life as it comes, don't try to understand. Act as if all go well, as if you were happy. †
