Three Rules

These three rules to a better life are from the American realist writer Nelson Algren. You might know him for his book Man with a Golden Arm.

1. Never play cards with a man called Doc.
2. Never eat in a place called Mom's.
3. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.

I've never cared for cards or eating out. Two out of three isn't bad.
