Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Honesty is the best policy. But some things are better left unsaid. So when in doubt, discretion is the better part of valor.

When it comes to a person’s romantic track record, it is good to know his past when assessing his present, but one must allow for the possibility of change in order for a coupling to have a future. This is a little trickier when it concerns friends, especially those with not-so-sterling reputations. You know them enough such that you can tell if your friend has indeed changed or is still up to his old tricks.

If anyone will do a demolition job of one’s romantic reputation, I prefer that it be the person himself and not some other. Warning a friend’s potential partner is more acceptable if it’s tempered by conditional phrases like, “But that is his track record. Whether you’ll be part of the statistics or break the mold, I can’t tell.” Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

And when worse come to worst, just drop the line: Oops, he did it again. Waaaaaaah!
