Lila, the nine-year-old daughter of my oldest friend, said to her father, Dad, your morning breath is like a defense mechanism.
No matter how sick you are, try not to let the little things slide unless you have no choice. It only makes you feel worse and alienates you from others. Comb your hair, brush you teeth, and put on clean clothes. You’ll feel better when you do, and spirited, smart-mouthed children won’t make fun of you.
