One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

  Burn all your favourite songs onto a disc for someone you like so they can get to know you better.

   If you are going to swear, use it in conversations to make a point, not as adjectives in everyday language.

 Learn a new word every day try to use them in sentences.

   You do not have to eat everything on your plate.

Porn does not represent real life sex, bodies, noises or emotions.

Look people in the eyes when you speak to them.

If you are well and fine and dandy, the only correct response to "How are you?" is "Fine, thank you". Not "good", "ok" or "fine".

Eat all the right things in the right portion sizes 6 days a week.  One day a week go nuts (see eating skittles with spoon).

Never apologise for crying if you need to or in a movie no matter how sappy it is.

Learn one good (clean) insult and use it infrequently so it doesn't lose its sting.

True friends won't notice if your house is untidy or your floors need cleaning.

 Sometimes life changing events happen to good people, but you learn that they are resilient.

There really are such things as rose coloured glasses and they do make things seem better than they are, but that is ok.

If they go home from your function a little bit hungry, they can always eat toast when they get home.

If you have a friend who is a medical doctor and you feel you need to call them for advice, then you need to call, see your doctor, not your friend.
