IF ...whiskers

Considered to be one of the more incompetent Civil War generals for the Army of the Potomac, Ambrose Burnside's dubious claim to fame was his peculiar whisker configuration; which was so well known that for a time they were called 'Burnsides' by anyone wearing them. ~~Somewhere along the way the syllables were reversed and the whiskers have been referred to as sideburns ever since.

IF ...zoom

After only 82 days as Vice President for FDR, Harry S Truman zoomed to the presidency and onto the world stage in a role he never overtly sought.  World War, Atom bomb, Israel, Dewey defeats, Korean War, McCarthyism, assassination attempt, MacArthur, and the Cold War.
You never know what you'll end up with once you azoom the presidency...

IF ...tree

Two full years living with the trees, the birds, the insects, the elements and of course the pond at Waldon had Henry David Thoreau living the 'simple life' and in the process become the beacon for quiet revolutions.

Coffee Mugs

You'll never be satisfied if you draw to meet your expectations.  It's much better to allow exploration to be your goal, and more often than not you'll find that expectations you didn't know you had will be met.

IF ...shy

Nathaniel Hawthorne was likely the shyest writer of the 'Dark Romantics'.  He would often go out of his way to avoid people, and he shunned his neighbor, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and his social circle.
It must have been a red letter day whenever Nathaniel imbibed in the social punchbowl...

You can think about it before or after, but during it's best to ice skate.
