Wow, a lot of you have opinions about being nice! Thanks so much for all of your comments. There were several with roughly the same message. Nice is accepted as long as it's sincere. I would tend to agree that I prefer sincere nice people around me in my world. While my friends are quirky and fun, they are very generous, kind, gracious gals who put me to shame in the nice department!
But I want to throw a monkey into the works.
