    sometimes it best to keep your mouth shut.

    My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school
    reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his
    drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
    I asked her, "Do you know him?"
    "Yes", she sighed,
    "He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking
    right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he
    hasn't been sober since."
    "My God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on
    celebrating that long?"
    And then the fight started...
