I just saw a business with one of those changeable letter signs out front that said:
“Kindness is like a boomerang, it always returns.”
Clearly these people have never thrown a boomerang.
Otherwise, it would say:
“Kindness is like a boomerang, sometimes it goes flying off into the bushes where you can’t find it, sometimes it ends up in the crazy neighbor’s yard with the ‘Trespassers will be shot’ signs plastered all over, and sometimes a racoon grabs it and runs up a tree with it and you have to coax it down with peanut butter, bananas, and left over cornbread.”
Actually, that sounds about right.
Fine, kindness is like a boomerang.
