Some words of wisdom

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

2. Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.

16. Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

21. It ain't the jeans that make your butt look fat.

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

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

26. Never lick a steak knife.

27. 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.

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

29. 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.

30. Your friends love you anyway.
