Being social alivens, being overly social kills.

My friend George was social and then he became very social and finally he was so popular that he couldn’t say, “no thanks,” to anything anymore.” He was social, had a sense of humor that the girls loved. He was trim and slim and the girls loved him more. He had it all, but as the saying goes, “Too much of a good thing is not a good thing.” When the cup runneth over it spills. George today is 60 and gone. I once caught him having three parties in one weekend. He laughed when I said, “It is not a good idea.” In each party George drank 4 glasses of mixed wine and 3 beers, not a good idea. Parties make you eat fast food and smoke, not a good idea. George was more popular than I was but he couldn’t say “No thanks” and I could. I am now 80. George was always invited to lunch and dinner by friends. He wasn’t hungry but you know, we all eat socially many times when we are popular but not hungry. Once, I heard that George had 3 dinners in one evening and slept with 3 girls in one weekend, why not order the richest food when you are poor and others pay?  Anyway, I just wanted to let you know, don’t be overly social, it’s not good for you. This quote is from the Torah, the best psychology text in the Universal university, “Kol Hamosif Gorea.”
