Everyone loves to give advice. Notice I didn’t say “good advice”. We give advice when asked for it, and we give advice unsolicited. Some of the best advice I have followed stemmed from someone’s experience, and not from pearls of wisdom. Some of the worst advice has come from trusted sources (I will never, EVER eat eggplant casserole again). The great thing about advice is not that you can follow it, but that you have the free will to ignore it as well. Unfortunately, the trick is to know when to do one or the other.
That’s usually when hilarity ensues, so you have that going for you.
There are some words of advice that people should never forget, though.
#5– Never go to bed angry
It doesn’t matter if some wizard cleaned your clock in World of Warcraft™ or if you’re miffed because your significant other forgot to DVR your TV show. Resolve your anger and you’ll sleep better. Or at least, sleep with both eyes closed instead of one open.
#4– Never go grocery shopping while hungry
There is a can of octopus in the refrigerator, purchased while having a craving for sushi. I bet that can will evolve into the Kraken before too long.
#3– Never leave chocolate unattended
I speak as a victim. And also as a culprit. Don’t judge me.
#2– Never leave wet towels on the floor
Especially if you have dogs. Double especially if you have wet dogs.
#1– Never skip dessert
Some say with the sweet, comes the sour. I say with dessert, comes happiness. It sure makes for a sweet ending to whatever type of day you are having.
So there’s a few random words of unsolicited advice. As always, take with a grain of sugar or two 😉
