â€œWhen youâ€™re in jail, a good friend will be trying to bail you out. A best friend will be in the cell next to you saying, â€˜Damn, that was funâ€˜.â€ â€” Groucho Marx

I donâ€™t know about you but I am not interested in being either of those guys. It is not because I dislike them or have any sort of disdain for what they do but because I like being me. I like being me for a lot of reasons not the least of which is that I donâ€™t have to try to be me because I just am.
