PERFECT DAY

I was reading the NYT review of a revision of Dale Carnegie's book about winning friends AND influencing people, and it boils it all down to: "be a good listener, admit faults quickly and emphatically, and smile more often, among them —"
Good advice, eh? My cat Spike has got it DOWN, and you can see a mug here inspired by my cat Spike and dog Penny...they love each other so much. Having a perfect day together.....

Perfect Day

Just A Perfect Day,
Drink Sangria In The Park,
And Then Later, When It Gets Dark,
We Go Home.
Just A Perfect Day,
Feed Animals In The Zoo
Then Later, A Movie, Too,
And Then Home.

Oh It's Such A Perfect Day,
I'm Glad I Spent It With You.
Oh Such A Perfect Day,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On.

Just A Perfect Day,
Problems All Left Alone,
Weekenders On Our Own.
It's Such Fun.
Just A Perfect Day,
You Made Me Forget Myself.
I Thought I Was Someone Else,
Someone Good.

Oh It's Such A Perfect Day,
I'm Glad I Spent It With You.
Oh Such A Perfect Day,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On,
You Just Keep Me Hanging On.

You're Going To Reap Just What You Sow,
You're Going To Reap Just What You Sow,
You're Going To Reap Just What You Sow,
You're Going To Reap Just What You Sow...

Oh they are so cute! And inspirational. Running around the top of a mug.

That crazy training I went through had a whole session on emphatic listening. We even had to practice listen!

Have a fun weekend, Rith household!

We're trying to get the introvert teen to read that book.
Love the mug & the song!
