Advice

                             "Always... No, wait. Never..." -Steve Martin

If you’re gonna do a thing half assed, make sure you don’t give a shit later when it sucks. But what I said to the kid was: I don’t know; ask your mother.

For the weekend  wanted some advice in 33 words.

55 comments:

  1. Ha. Ask your mother is a lot safer. We all fall into these traps. Terrific piece.

  19. I retire in 2018. One of my goals, between now and then is, to continue to say what needs to be said to my students without uttering the profanity that is, sometimes, roaring through my brain! Restraint is a necessary virtue in my job, let me tell ya. Thanks for a refreshing post, Kymm. :)

    1. It helps if you can talk to yourself in profanity. That's why I'm a polyglot.
