15 Lessons Learned (courtesy of “Phil’s-osophy”):
- Always look people in the eye. Even if they’re blind, just say, “I’m looking you in the eye.”
- If you get pulled over for speeding, tell the policeman your spouse has diarrhea.
- You only get one chance at a first impression. I suggest Julia Child because it’s easy to do.
- The most amazing things that can happen to a human being will happen to you if you just lower your expectations.
- Dance until your feet hurt. Sing until your lungs hurt. Act until you’re William Hurt.
- Take a lesson from parakeets. If you’re ever feeling lonely, just eat in front of a mirror.
- Never be afraid to reach for the stars, because even if you fall, you’ll always be wearing a parent-chute™.
- Marry someone who looks sexy while disappointed.
- Older black ladies make the best iced tea.
- Success is 1% inspriation, 98% perspiration, and 2% attention to detail.
- You can tell a lot about a person from his biography.
- Watch a sunrise at least once a day.
- If you love something, set it free. Unless it’s a tiger.
- If you’re ever in a jam, a crayon scrunched up under your nose makes a great pretend mustache.
- When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life will be all like “WHAAT?”
