Rules for better living

I don’t know where I’ve been all this blog’s life. But it’s terrific.

Here are some good ones…

  1. Framing a poster does not make it valuable.
  2. Don’t pose with booze.
  3. You don’t get to choose your own nickname.
  4. You marry the girl, you marry her whole family.
  5. Never push someone off a dock.
  6. Know your idioms! Avoid cliché.
  7. If you’re good at something, never do it for free.
  8. Unless you served, no fatigues (camouflage pants).
  9. Be subtle. She sees you.
  10. Give credit. Take the blame.
  11. Your best chance of being a rockstar is learning the bass.
  12. Never turn down an invitation to speak in public.
  13. Never respond to a critic in writing.
  14. Fish don’t have eyelids. Cast into the shade.
  15. If you spot a teacher outside of school, leave them be.
  16. Identify your most commonly used word or phrase, and eliminate it.
  17. When singing karaoke, choose a song within your range.
