A white -haired gibbon
Under – Age Drinking
When I was younger, too young to drink, I snuck into a bar with my friend to play pool.
In my village they didn’t often follow the law when it came to drinking age.
If you had money,you were in.
The pool table was right behind the bar, so you could hear the old regulars talking.
One guy seemed particularly angry.
“They should go back to where they came from.”
I ended up being crippled with laughter as I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
They should go back to the jungle.
Do people really have these opinions?
Is this really happening?
The guy kept talking for about 20 minutes. One thing worse than the last.
I thought I should say something.
“They should go back to living in the trees.”
I didn’t say a word to him.
The french have a term, esprit de l’escalier, meaning staircase wit.
It’s used to describe those moments when you couldn’t think of the perfect thing to say.
You only think of something witty when you’re on the stairs on the way out.
The bright Side
Although sometimes not speaking up is more wounding than a punch in the face.
Are you blonkers?
