    Borrow a child and get on welfare.
    Borrow a child and stay in the house all day with the child,
    or go to the public park with the child, and take the child
    to the welfare office and cry and say your man left you and
    be humble and wear your dress and your smile, and don’t talk
    back ...

    You know lots of criticism is written by characters who are very academic and think it is a sign you are worthless if you make jokes or kid or even clown.

    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
