FF: Take it from me

I am a veritable font of great vats of wisdom.  If only I could get paid for everything I know.  Here's a sampling from what I've learned this week:

Take it from me, your vision will improve tremendously once you remove your READING glasses after driving on a dark, rainy night.

... when someone tells you how easy it is to write a Harlequin-type novel, they haven't written one.

... watching an 8 year old read his Bible every night just before bed will absolutely melt your heart.

... if you cheat on your diet repeatedly by ordering mocha frappes from McDonald's, you will dribble on your shirt and not notice, thus giving away your little secret.

...if your daughter is convinced that you're crazy, she will eventually find someone with a crazier mom.  In contrast, you will suddenly look great to her.

... if a college teacher has a brainstorm and pulls up a Schoolhouse Rock video, "Conjunction junction, what's your function?" for her students to watch, they still won't know what a conjunction is afterward.

And if that same college teacher tells a student that she knows what he has between his thighs, she might mean his cell phone, but the students won't believe her.  Take it from me.

Now what have you learned this week?

Sounds like you've learned some interesting lessons this week. I learned that I am 7 days closer to retirement.

Great lessons! :) I've learned that staying up with friends until 3am, and then trying to make it through a day at work is no longer worth it! lol

I am following from the one of the blog hops! Would love for you to stop by and say hello some time :) Be sure to check out my Giveaway for an EcoMom giftcard! Have a wonderful weekend!

Those are great! I've learned that the cashier at Wal-Mart who I thought was nuts is actually very kind. Especially since I randomly started pouring my heart out to her, almost cried, and then she told me I was "cute and sweet." Maybe Wal-Mart isn't so bad...
