Who needs advice from Dear Abby or Oprah

when everyone has their two cents worth?

  • Don’t hire a life coach who doesn’t have a life – or at least a nice dog.
  • Never go to the grocery store at noon on a Monday – it’s such a good time for a lemon cleanse anyway – not.
  • If you insist upon racing snowboards or motorcycles – make sure you have health insurance and someone to drive you to your doctor’s appointments for five months.
  • If you can’t stand the heat in the kitchen – don’t cook. Order take-out.
  • Remember – menopause passes, but male mid-life crisis is forever.
  • Don’t go to a shrink whose pooch is on Prozac.
  • Don’t let your kids play in the street – unless it’s Wall Street and they are math geniuses.
  • Kale can be chopped into itsy bitsy teeny weeny pieces and hidden in lime pudding – but kids won’t eat lime pudding either… so skip it.
  • Never take diet tips from an “expert” who wears Plus Size clothing. They know everything that doesn’t work.
  • When a cat says “NO!” – he means “NO!”  There is NO negotiating with a feline.
  • Hall’s Cough Drops give advice – “A Pep Talk In Every Drop” – via the wrappers.  At least they don’t say, “You Suck.”

    Personally, I’d rather read the positive thinking blurbs inside a Dove’s chocolate but that’s just me. Otherwise, thanks for your two cents.
