Another parable for the ages, but this time it doesn't involve me (honest):
"How do I become a pro artist?" asked the aspiring artist while drinking at a con.
Said the pro artist: "Why are you drinking at a con when you could be at home drawing?"
And the aspiring artist was enlightened.
Three months later, the pro artist went to the doctor, who told her to stop working herself to death for Christ's sake I warned you about this before why can't you take advice?
