STUFF I'VE LEARNED part 4

My Linkwithin widget at the end of my last post reminded me I had not added to my Stuff I’ve Learned postings since last December. So here is the next installment of my list of valuable information I usually learned the hard way. As I said with Part One of this inventory, “Some mistakes are too fun to only make once, there are others that are best not repeated…As you can guess there is a good story to go with some of them.” *Hot glass looks the same as cold glass. * Even the worst haircut eventually grows out. *The photos of your stylish hairdo and clothes will be a source of embarrassment in ten years or less. *Faith is built of two basic elements: knowledge and trust. The more you understand through study, the more you can trust. The stronger your understanding and trust, the greater your faith. *Always search the pockets before washing the clothes. *If you are going to stir up the piss ants don’t stand in their nest. *When living several thousand feet above sea level, it is wise to point a sealed container away from you when opening. *When a lady squats in the woods she should aim downhill so her shoes don’t get wet. *Don’t believe everything you think. *When someone gets mad and asks, “Do I look stupid?” don’t answer. *When you put on a hooded sweatshirt backwards you go blind. *Instead of being annoyed because the toilet seat is not put back down, I should be glad it was lifted up. *When your husband is watching television in the other room and you don’t hear the channel change in over five minutes—he is asleep.

Oh, these are good for smiles! "Don't believe everything you think".....that is a good one. I still sometimes forget to check pockets before tossing clothes into washer.....oh, all those tissue flecks everywhere, and clean dollar bills.....

Great fun Leenie, thank-you. I've read Parts 1-4 now and my favourite one of all is "When children are crabby put them in water".Makes sense.I'm still smiling about many of these!

I think I'll take a cue from you on several fronts, especially the peeing downhill, which, no matter how many times my shoes get wet, I seem to always remember too late;)

I've read through several of your posts, and they're all quite entertaining. You have a great sense of humor. I'm glad I found my way here. Thanks for visiting my blob, too.

"When you put on a hooded sweatshirt backwards you go blind." HILARIOUS!

Ha..and when a lady squats in the woods- she should also make sure it's on a pile of soft grass! Wonder how I know?
