Omar Khayyam (170) “For a hand … which always grips a wine glass”

For a hand like mine, 
which always grips a wine glass,
it would be a shame 
to put scripture or a rosary in it.
You’re a dry ascetic, 
and I’m a soused rascal, 
but don’t worry–
I’m too well-watered
to burn in hell.

Dear guy on the beach:
Settle down…sand won’t kill you. Your daughter won’t die if she eats some sand, your precious coffee cup will be ok. You’re at the beach…take a minute and enjoy your kids, your wife, your life. It can’t be that bad.
Love, chick with cancer
——
Dear kids…the way you jumped right into the waves with no regard for temperature made me grin from the bottom of my heart. Don’t lose that enthusiasm for life.
——
Dear fellow adults who jumped in the waves, too : fist bump. We rock.
——
Dear pregnant woman: the way you look at that man with your daughter? Perfect. I hope he’s the father of both of them.
PS: you look fabulous in that suit.
——
Dear husband,
I’m not sure who loves when you let loose and enjoy our boys fully more, me or them. Either way, thank you for being an amazing dad. And for being you.
Love, me

Dear hotel,
