I watched many hours of "Pirates" movies recently with my husband and son. Jack Sparrow had one line that caught my attention more than all his zany mannerisms. He offered, "If I might lend a machete to your intellectual thicket..."
Good line, Captain Jack. I need that machete, I'll take it! And I'll hold tight to those friends (none of them pirates, though) who lend me the machete on an almost daily basis. It can be challenging to bushwhack through all the thickets I find myself in. When I hear advice like: "Don't overanalyze," or "Let it go!" I have to laugh, because who do those advice-givers think they're dealing with?
