I came across this quote . . . “I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.” Actually, it was my husband that pointed it out to me. Which is ironic considering that I get blamed for anything and everything that goes wrong . . . and if you were to ask my beloved spouse he would probably say that everything IS my fault. That’s not to say that he won’t admit it if he’s wrong or did something stupid, but in his own little fuzzy mind that doesn't happen very often. So, if it’s not his fault then it must be mine. That quote applies perfectly, doesn't it!
There was a peacock who often boasted about his beauty. Everyday he walked to the banks of a large lake and looked his own reflections and said "Oh! What a beautiful bird I am! Look at my colorful tail".
Once the peacock saw a crane on the banks of the lake. He said with a sneer to the crane, "What a colorless bird you are! You have no beautiful and colorful feathers like mine".
The crane replied, "Of course I don't have beautiful feathers. But, my feathers can make me fly across the lake. Can your feathers make you fly?" There was no reply from the peacock.
MORAL: Never find fault with others.
Just sayin’ . . .
For the record, I take full responsibility for the awesomeness of this recipe . . . lay the blame on me that it's so good, it's all my fault.
