Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had guardian angels who would watch our every move 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and slap us in the forehead just before we say something stupid?

If we could have these slaphappy angels, the world would be much quieter and a nicer place to live, I’d bet, but there’d also be a lot of people with severe cases of whiplash and many, many concussions.

Of course, there is a very good substitute for these slaphappy angels…and that, of course, would be thinking before speaking. If one thinks about it, many of the fights and skirmishes we have are because someone said something stupid. Now if they had been smacked or thought about the consequences before they’d said anything, the fight may not have occurred.

And most people’s reactions to this would be…”So, where can I buy one of these angels of which you speak?”
