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.
