Never kick a sleeping skunk.
— Kelly Long’s Mom
Mom’s have a lot of great advice. I’m sure we’ve all heard:
- Money does not grow on trees.
- Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position.
- Always change your underwear; you never know when you’ll have an accident.
- Be careful or you’ll put your eye out.
- If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
- Be careful what you wish for, it might come true.
We could go on–obviously.
But, I was intrigued by this bit of advice when Kelly shared it with me a couple weeks ago. Is there a writing application? What do you think?

Be careful what you write … it could come back and leave a stink. Yesterday, I started to respond to a sleeing-skunk photo story on Facebook, but thankfully before I hit enter, I rethought my remarks and erased them. 🙂 The story dealt with a dog with 2 prostheses, due to torture by a gang. I started to write what I thought they should do to the gang members’ anatomy regarding future generations, but decided it was too graphic. I let that sunk lie undisturbed.
hahahahahhahaha! I like your application. “Be careful what you write … it could come back and leave a stink.”
