18 Things I Wish I'd Known
17 May 2001

     18 things I wish I'd known before I went out in the real world.

  1. Any and all compliments can be handled by simply saying "Why, thank you" (though it helps if you say it with a Southern accent).

  2. Some people are working backstage, some are playing in the orchestra, some are on stage singing, some are in the audience as critics and some are there to applaud. Know who and where you are.

  3. Never give yourself a haircut after three margaritas.

  4. When baking, follow directions.  When cooking, go by your own taste.

  5. Never continue dating anyone who is rude to the waiter and doesn't like dogs/cats.

  6. Good sex should involve laughter.

  7. You need only two tools.  WD-40 and duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40.  If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

  8. The five most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship: "I apologize" and "You are right".

  9. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

10. When you make a mistake, make amends immediately.  It's easier to eat crow while it's still warm.

11. The only really good advice that I remember my mother ever gave me was "Go! You might meet somebody!"

12. If he/she says that you are too good for him/her--believe it.

13. I've learned to pick my battles, I ask myself,  Will this matter one  year from now?  How about one month?  One week?  One day?

14. If you woke up breathing, congratulations!  You have another chance!

15. Living well really is the best revenge.  Being miserable because of a bad or former relationship just might mean that the other person was right about you.

16. Knowing how to listen to music is as great a talent as knowing how to make it.

17. Work is good but it's not that important.

18. Never underestimate the kindness of your fellow man.
