I am a fan.  I can't help it.  Improve myself? Let me count the ways, the possibilities, the benefits and on and on and on. 

My offspring view any attempt at self-improvement as ludicrous and personally embarrassing.  (As if THEY were born, fully formed).  My husband finds the entire topic wearing.  Up until now.

He calls this the best short self help film ever.  As if!

  1. I agree with Barry. This is absolutely true. It's not instantaneous, but it's true.

  8. CP!
