Wisdom #2

A High School Teacher’s List of Wisest Words:

Take a vacation from your cell phone, internet, and TV once a year.

Don’t fill up on bread, no matter how good.

A handshake beats an autograph.

Don’t linger in the doorway. In or out.

If you choose to go in drag, don’t sell yourself short.

If you want to know what makes you unique, sit for a caricature.

Never get your hair cut the day of a special event.

Be mindful of what comes between you and the Earth. Always buy good shoes, tires, and sheets.

Never eat lunch at your desk if you can avoid it.

When you’re with new friends, don’t just talk about old friends.

Eat lunch with the new kids.

When traveling, keep your wits about you.

It’s never too late for an apology.

Don’t pose with booze.

If you have the right of way, take it.

You don’t get to choose your own nickname.

When you marry someone, remember you marry their entire family.

Never push someone off a dock.

Under no circumstances should you ask a woman if she’s pregnant.

It’s not enough to be proud of your ancestry; live up to it.

  2. I have done the caricature thing... with my dad. And we were both holding a glass of beer. And my facebook photo is a painting caricature I painted of me, holding a glass of wine.

    So... Epic fail?

    Are you pregnant?

    bahahahaha!

  6. "When traveling, keep your wits about you" , that's why I bring my wife along with me anywhere I go, she has all the wits in my house and " When you marry someone, remember you marry their entire family ", my wife has 9 siblings in their home. I married into a clan not a family. Ha,ha,ha. Boy am I rolling this morning.
    Have a wonderful Thursday Sandee and start looking in your mail for a surprise card. See ya.

    1. I know your wife takes very good care of you.

      You sure do marry their entire family.

      I go to the mailbox every day (except Sunday) so I'll be looking. :)

  7. Now that's some smart stuff kids need to know. Sadly, most of them never hear such good advice.

    Big hugs, honey...

    1. I didn't hear all this advice either. Wish I had though. :)

  8. I know grown men who still pose with beer. Some things they just don't outgrow. Too bad they weren't given this advice. ;)

  9. Good ones, I enjoyed the theme (reality?) that you marry the entire family of the groom or bride.
    Have a great day!

  10. Don't pose with booze!!!! I see people doing that all the time. I guess it's okay if it's a glass of wine? I don't do it anymore, but before I was a children's writer, I'd proudly take pictures of my vacation margarita and post it on Facebook!

  11. I like all of these- good advice- especially the one about asking a woman if she's pregnant!
    Once at a Baby Shower I asked the sister of the mother-to-be when her baby was due......whoopsie daisy......if looks could have killed I would have been dead! Cheers!

    1. I've done it too and you only do this one time. Then you learn not to assume. :)

  12. Definitely do not push someone off a dock, or the side of the pool, either. That's how Grandpa almost drowned!

    1. Yep, not a wise plan at all. :)

  14. LOL never ask a woman if she's pregnant. Someone should have told my ex father in law that one. He asked if I was some time between kid 1 and kid 2 and I wasn't. I was depressed for a few weeks after that though :)
