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.

Brush your teeth twice a day.. and floss.

It is ok to be pissed off.. just dont wallow. Welll... ok .. if you must wallow.. you've got 24 hours. then we will slap you and tell you to get on with it.

Pay your bills on time.

A lot of the fun is in the anticipation. So is a lot of the fear.

Time may heal wounds.. but you need to take good care of the scars.

Rainy days WILL cause you to want to nap on the sofa. Every now and then.. you should do it.

Some puppies take a LONG time to grow up. So do some humans.

Never trust a crouching, hiding cat with flat ears. Or a hidden dragon.


Never write an email  or a text in anger.Ok.. you can write it.. but dont send it. Write it.. then delete it. Trust us.

Things NOT to do by text:
dump someone.
fire someone.
propose to someone.
announce someone's birth... or death.
These are worthy of actual speech.

Find a song you love. Play it over and over. Loud. Sing it at the top of your voice. Enjoy the  bliss that comes.
