lessons from my parents

(Meme stolen from Mighty Girl)

Anything [band here] is doing was done first, and better, by Led Zeppelin.

It’s okay that you don’t type well. That means you can’t get a job as a secretary.

A car is a tool, not a toy.

Your perfume should leave a hint, not a punch.

All generalizations are false.

Offer a firm handshake.

I can sing a rainbow.

Dress nicely for an interview. (You would think this was hella obvious, but some of the people I’ve seen…)

If you can’t make it good, make it big. If you can’t make it big, make it red.

My all-time, absolute, penultimate favorite: Look it up.

  1. I wish I was so clever. It was actually a moment of trying to think of the word “apogee,” but only remembering “perigee,” looking it up to get the antonym, trying to adjectify it (yes, I just made that word up, I like it, don’t you?), failing, forgetting what I was doing in the first place, and wildly and incorrectly using “penultimate” instead. D’oh!


  2. Penultimate and decimate share the same fate of being so constantly misused that it’s hard to remember what they really mean. 🙂

    And, I had to look up “apogee.”
