100 Words, 100 Days: Day 71. On Nice.

Wish You Were Here?

One of my least favourite sayings currently doing the rounds, especially in the bar trade, is “It’s nice to be nice.” Really…is it? Sometimes it’s nicer not to be nice. Sometimes you can get a hell of a lot of satisfaction just by being rude to people who deserve it. Of course, you can turn the other cheek – but why leave yourself open to another assault. It doesn’t make sense.

There is another nice – Nice, in the South of France. If you’re looking for me in the coming week, that’s where you’ll find me, lying on a beach, having fun.

  1. James! Please accept my condolences. I know you hate lying around doing nothing, but honestly lad, it’s just your turn. Stiff upper, and all that.

  2. Being nice is a good thing!!
    But being naughty is better!!
    That’s my philosophy anyway!!
    Darling, you are making me so unbelievably jealous with all your talk of Nice!!

  3. James, how wonderful. I love Nice. I spent three months there studying French on a scholarship. I lived in the Baie des Anges dorm. My favorite walk was to stroll the Promenade des Anglais overlooking the beach. Be sure to have salade niçoise, a speciality. I can hardly wait to hear about your visit.

  4. Vacationing to Nice…should be better the vacationing from nice….just saying:)
