August 7, 2017


A smile begets a smile.
Tears beget tears.
Happiness begets happiness.
Holding doors begets holding doors.
Just watch - at a busy door. It happens
every time. I guarantee it.
A good word begets a good word.
A sneeze begets a sneeze.
A “God bless you” begets a “Thank you.”
Clapping begets more clapping.
Laughter begets more laughter.
Noise begets a “Shush!”
Silence begets silence - sometimes.
Music begets music and sometimes foot tapping.
Beeping horns begets, “Give me a break.”
Bumps cause bumps.
A falling domino topples other dominoes.
Frustration begets frustration.
Loneliness begets phone calls.
Tension begets tension.
Locks begets knocks and bell ringing.
Ice cream begets, “Me too.”
Or as Groucho Marx put it,
“If your parents didn’t have any
children - chances are you won’t either.”
