Very good. Don't forget an onion a day keeps everyone away. Ask me no stories I'll tell you no lies. I like polish food except for Garagekeys. Remember when you point your finger at someone, you have 3 fingers pointing back at you. Now, I'm just being stupid.

Did you mean "A bird in the hand is worth more than 2 in a bush?. That means be satisfied with the bird in your hand, chances are you won't get the 2 in the bush. So be content with the bird in your hand.
