Best not served at all

theatrical_muse thingy: Revenge

I've never been much for revenge. Don't really see the point. It just causes more of the same, you see. People revenge themselves on you for the revenge you took on them and so on and so forth, and before you know where you are, you've got a family feud or a series of wars that run for centuries.

I'd put it with patriotism; those two cause most of the trouble in the galaxy. I'm not saying to turn your cheek so the fist can slam into the other one, just to deal with it right then like I do, with a smart remark, a practical joke like bolting all their furniture to the ceiling of their cabin, or a few strong drinks to dull the pain if it's too dangerous to do either. Sitting on it till then serving them a stale meal they won't swallow isn't worth it.

You'll probably live longer. That can't be bad.
