"Congratulations! You're not perfect! It's ridiculous to want to
be perfect anyway. But then, everybody's ridiculous sometimes, except for
perfect people. You know what perfect is? Perfect is not eating or drinking or
talking or moving a muscle or making even the teeniest mistake. Perfect is never
doing anything wrong--which means never doing anything at all. Perfect is
boring! So you're not perfect! Wonderful!! Have fun! Eat things that give you
bad breath! Trip over your own shoelaces! Laugh! Let somebody els laugh at you!
Perfect people never do any of those things. All they do is sit around and sip
weak tea and think about how perfect they are. But they're really not
on-hundred-percent perfect anyway. You should see them when they get the
hiccups! Phooey! Who needs 'em? You can drink pickle juice and imitate gorillas
and do silly dances and sing stupid songs and wear funny hats and be as
imperfect as you please and still be a good person. Good people are hard to find
nowadays. And they're a lot more fun than perfect people any day of the week."
