  • If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,

  • If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

  • If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

  • If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,

  • If you can overlook when people take things out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,

  • If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

  • If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

  • If you can conquer tension without medical help,

  • If you can relax without liquor,

  • If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

  • If you can do all these things,

    Then you are probably the family dog.
