STUFF I'VE LEARNED part 5


Here is the fifth installment of the list of valuable information that I started in November 2008.
* If you decide to spray mosquito repellent on your face, be sure to close your eyes tight AND take off your glasses * Don’t run in a graveyard * You always burn your mouth when your drink hot chocolate through a straw * The soap in public bathrooms smells awful so you will scrub your hands clean to get rid of the stink * The purpose of the little toe is to find furniture in the dark * A rainy night far from home is a bad time to discover you car needs new wiper blades * An ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure * Always look in the oven before you turn it on—especially if you have children living with you * When people are free to do as they please they usually imitate each other * Only pour for a child the amount of beverage you are willing to clean up * Never tell someone their diet is not working * Take contractors’ promises with a grain of salt, and don’t argue with them when they are holding a nail gun * Put your worst task at the top of your list. That way you will get a lot of other things done while you are avoiding the unpleasant job.

Love the "pretension" observation, and the one about putting the worst task at the top of the list! My avoidance system would have me doing everything else but that, too.
