As I wrote today's installment, Dorothy Parker's delightful poem kept popping into me little head:

Four be the things I'd been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles and doubt.

And I'm almost glad I didn't find anyone doing a rendition of Parker's poem on YouTube -- because poets tend to use The Voice that shows how intelligent they are and how dumb we are and how the word need tone and inflection and deserve more than the common, tawdry, ignominious pronunciations we mere mortals give them.
