Thank you, Luciendasky...It's because of him that I always question every purchase I make. Our world is filled with needless bundles of nothings! When you think about it, there is very little we need to "survive" including food. There are many things in this world that are free. Those are usually the best things too
Okay hmmmm. Back to the topic. My father was very strict. He always says "no boyfriend until after college" (shheeesssh). then he will follow it with "after you graduate, you can get married the next day, I won't stop you". (double sheeesssh). come to think of it, how can we get married day after graduation when we can't have boyfriends two days before that?
my dad used to tell me "be a ram, not a lamb". he got that from his father. the same grandfather had another one i always liked though..."if you can't soar with the eagles in the morning, then you shouldn't have been out hooting with the owls all night".
My teenage years my dad used to say - "Keep off the grass" - i thought this was some sign posted in a park/garden. Until i saw some teenage groups having a pot session, puffing weed. Aye! that's the grass he was talking about!
Yeah my mom was always saying stuff that at first sounds like an insult, but then after a few minutes you thought wow she's kinda right. I always said my Moms Epitaph was going to read, " OH YEAH AND ANOTHER THING MISTER!"
And he tends to say in late June, every year, "darker every day now until Christmas!" which annoys everyone else. Because in the UK, the summer days are endless - light at 4am, dark at 10pm, but the down side is that it's jolly dark in December (-:
Are you Jewish? I've been hearing that all my life. My parents made it clear that our ancestors may have been chased out of one place after the next. Therefore, the only thing you can really carry with you no matter where you go is, your mind, your knowledge, your education.
My dad always told me you can accomplish anything you set your mind to and if you ever feel intimidated by anothe person just picture that person on the toilet because we all look the same when we're taking care of business. Needless to say I am not easily intimidated.
