I had an unusual mother-in-law that had the most marvelous “one liners” and my favorite was “Scratch it and get glad" I think it basically means crap is going to come into our lives…everybody is going to get their share. And although in theory is misery loves company, the reality is nobody loves misery. Misery may gather a crowd for a little while, but it will not last and in the meantime, the crap takes over your life. If you want a happy life, full of friends, life and love, "scratch it and get glad"!
