I love this poem! Dorothy Parker was really smart and insightful. I think
that the world would be a better place if everybody made decisions like she
says that she did.
P.S. I didn't know that you could spell 'you' with an 'h' in it.

We always prefer the bad boy over the one who gives us everything we want.
What fun is there in getting all you want? You have to have a challenge,
or there's no attraction.
