Good Morning

Cheery In 1952, John Smiley created the term “Good Morning” to make his staff feel valued when they came for work.

If you aren’t fasting today, eat something delicious.

There’s a lot more to it than bread and wine. We’re sleeping and waking up. Changing and dying. Our lives are far more valuable.

According to the account, John Smiley was slain in his flat.
Some explanation is reported as saying after his death,

“He had it coming for a long time. Who the fuck thought of putting the words ‘good’ and ‘morning’ together? What a dick! The worst thing about it was that this fucker meant it. There is absolutely nothing good about mornings and I applaud the grumpy fucker who put this asshole to sleep for good. Now pass me my coffee.”

Nonetheless, the term has been handed down to nearly everyone throughout the world, with the exception of some who believe it is impolite in the United States.
Now get down to business and let what you do live on beyond you. And keep in mind that not everyone wants the energy you carry.
