Discreet. The way you tell someone which creet you would like to have.

Candor. The opening you use to get out of a can.

I'll be here all week folks. Be sure to be good to your bartender and waitresses. :)

POP, it's good to see you back! May we have blue creets?

I like the combination of candor and discretion. One can be honest and kind at the same time. The problem with brutal honesty is that it's brutal.

Crabbi, these are words which go well with one another. You make a good point about being kind and honest. Thanks for reading!
