One of the troubles wHh telling your troubles is that half the people you tell them to don't give a hoot, and the other half are glad you finally got your comeuppance. Things could be worse. If men wore antlers like moose, it would be even more of a nuisance riding to work by bus or subway. A successful bachelor is a guy who can give three girls lingerie for Christmas and still stay free. There is plenty to be grateful for this Thanksgiving Day. For example, in a noisy world half the pianos in America bought by parents to instill music in their children relapse into silence within six months and become simply pieces of living room furniture. The only sounds they make are When they're dusted.
