“You might try never working on Sundays. Just rule it out. See how you like it.” That’s one of the best pieces of advice I ever received from a priest. No matter how busy I get at the office, I don’t work on Sundays, except in extreme circumstances. The “mental shift” that occurs in a person (in me, at least) by setting aside Sunday in its entirety as a day of rest has proven invaluable. You might want to try it. * * * * * * * It’s almost like those Bible people knew a thing or two. * * * * * * * BXVI’s tweet yesterday: “What does Sunday, the day of the Lord, mean for us? It is a day for rest and for family, but first of all a day for Him.”


Speaking of Twitter, my high school son Jack showed me two Twitter accounts: “S*** Nobody Says” and “SportsS***NoOneSays.” It’s PG-13, but there are some funny ones. Sample:

“I love seeing happy couples, they remind me how I have no one.”

“Monday is definitely my favorite of the week.”

“Being a vegetarian would be awesome!”

“Snooki is going to be a great parent.”

“I want to buy that new WNBA game.”

“Pro Bowl party at my house!”

When a person tweets something, people can comment on it. The sports Twitter site mentioned above recently linked to this exchange at Manti Te’o’s Twitter account.
