While it is true that a ton of feathers is the same weight as a ton of bricks, it’s better to have a ton of feathers fall on your head from a great height than a ton of bricks.
If you had nothing to talk about if you weren’t complaining, maybe it’s best that you just don’t talk.
If you have bad breath and/or B O and/or stinking feet, don’t worry about it. It’s only other people it sickens. You won’t even notice it.
If your feet are dirty it’s a good idea to wash them, even if you only have cold water.
If there’s a drought on it’s better to drink the water first then wash with what’s left. For one thing it wouldn’t taste nice if you did it the other way around.
