Sue & Rue


Sue: As times change, words take on a different meaning.

Rue: Meaning?

Sue: Often they mean the opposite of what they are supposed to mean.

Rue: Like?

Sue: When you say something went off without incident, it could just mean there was no violence to report.

Rue: But when there really is none to report…

Sue: When you say there was no untoward incident to report, it would just mean nobody reacted or resisted.

Rue: So what do you really mean?

Sue: I mean, when “peace” becomes “lack of war”, “war” would become a “cry for peace”.

Rue: So what would you choose?

Sue: War or peace?
