Thursday Thirteen

Archived TTs ~ TT Headquarters

Words of Wisdom


1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative
on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race
has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never
want you to share yours with them.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. (This
one is very important)

7. Never lick a steak knife.

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling
reason why we observe daylight savings time.

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests
that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby
emerging from her at that moment.

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to
make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11.

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age,
gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep
down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice
person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

Funny and true!

my 13

Matt-Man said...

Number 13 is dead on. You can tell so much of a person by how they treat "the help". Cheers!!

Desert Songbird said...

Amen to #8, sistah.

All truths.

Lazy Daisy said...

Amazingly true....so simple yet so profound. I copied a few of these down.

fullbodytransplant said...

Just get up and dance.

Amen.

(I could go on, those were absolutely brilliant. Someone sure knows how to LIVE.)

Starrlight said...

American Idol proves that hobby one every single year!

girlymom said...

This is a good list, I will have to keep a few of these in mind, hmmmm who do I know that isn't nice to waiters? Ya know I am a pretty darn good driver...I think! Ha ha ha

Sarge Charlie said...

Your wisdom exceeds your age.

Believer in Balance said...

LOL!!!! I absolutely love and agree with all of them! So true and so funny!

feefifoto said...

I love this list! Is it from Dave Barry?

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

perfect, especially number 11. i feel exactly this way, and never want a big deal made of my birthday...

smiles, bee
xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Sleeping Mommy said...

All too true. The birthday one is something I wish my inlaws would get once and for all. Oh and another one is never put a steak knife in the dishwasher blade side up. I learned this the hard way. I think it goes along with never lick a steak knife

Nissa said...

Those are so great!!

I still do #11, though. :(

Happy TT!

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Those are too funny and very true! :)

Akelamalu said...

A ngehbc awg sqjiu xvsap

Translated: I licked the steak knife! :)

Fratzels said...

These are so true, but #11 I will always make a big deal of. Can't help it.

Fratzels said...

K.T. is Mommatude said...

haha YES!!

Penelope Anne said...

Number 3 is true, very true...and why can't I lick the steak knife...it is a fine art I have perfected. LOL!
Peace, love, and Mama Bear Hugs

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

They are all true too Tisha. Every last one. Words to live by. Have a great TT. :)

imadramamama said...

I say "AMEN!" to #6

mom huebert said...

About #9: you noticed that too? Why do we have all this craziness about time changes....?

Linda said...

In regards to number 6 - nope, can't do it - way too self-conscious!

And number 11 is just wrong in my book. Birthdays should always be made a big deal of no matter how old you are!

Mags said...

Fantastic list Tisah...though I have to say that I don't care if people think I am a bad dancer, I just don't really enjoy dancing...I wish I did.

And the waitress thing, yeah-totally true!!!

Michelle said...

These are funny and ring true as well....

Cheerio said...

I agree with your #2. Meetings..meetings. Always meetings and no action. When I used to work I love my boss' saying...."Think It, Write It, Sign It...Do it!"

Sockpuppet said...

nice list CWM!

Karen MEG said...

Great TT - and #13 says it all...you are SOOOOO right!

Bubba's Sis said...

Fine words of wisdom, indeed!

the teach said...

Tisha, love your TT post!! especially # 13 you can learn a lot about a person who is rude to a waiter!!
