When you lose your phone, IMMEDIATELY CANCEL SERVICE. Do not think it might be under the couch. Moreover, do NOT wait until you receive the bill from the phone company. The bill will be quite large, maybe in the hundreds range, and it may or may not include calls to China.

Calie! *hug*

Learned tonight: If you haven't received the first draft of a paper back from your teacher yet, it is NOT a good idea to delete the file from your computer, because he may ask you to revise it for another paper grade.

Learned last night: The Golden Rule of "Never do anything complicated, important or hazardous while tired, emotional, or drunk" also applies when you're sick, too.

Lesson learned this morning: Dirt + heat + moisture = mud.

Application: When your dog has been chewing on dirt and sod, is still excitable and liable to go for whichever piece of clothing it sees first, don't bring your sleeve down next to its mouth. Especially if you were planning on wearing it that day...

Don't throw a hammer at a wall if you can't figure out how to fix something, it only creates more things to fix.

...you get to guess whether I did this, or just witnessed someone else doing it.

Lesson learned just a few moments ago:

If you've been sitting on your bed so long that one of your legs has fallen asleep and you suddenly realise how thirsty you are, wait until you get the feeling back before going down the stairs.

Age 8-If you're in the back seat of a car and your food suddenly begins to float, you're not in space. In fact, the car is probably doing a flip and you'll wake up in 30 minutes with paramedics swarming over you. (That's literally all I remember about that; my pop-corn started to float.)

Age 10-Loose sand and gravel are suprisingly apt surfaces for crashing bikes on.

Ages unknown
-When handling an iron, it's a very intelligent idea to know where every inch of your body is in relationship to the iron.

-Just because you're tan doesn't mean you can't get writhing sun-burns. Use sun-scene every time you go to the beach.

-Never dive into a shallow stream. Every moment until you get the x-rays back on your neck is tormenting.

-There are people in this world that won't like you for what you are because a book told them so. Take some advice from that book and try to forgive them for it.

-If it looks like a tornado is about to touch down, one probably will do so. Seek shelter or you'll end up stuck in the open. You don't want to be out in the open when one of those beauties touch down.

-You can, in fact, get a burn from the water in hot-springs. Amazing, I know.

-Blood may be thicker than water, but it's an unfortunate truth that money is thicker than blood.

- Wanting something really badly doesn't make it happen.

- Looking before you leap is immensely important, doubly so in matters of the heart.

- Your friends will ALWAYS assume you're depressed if you admit you're listening to country. O_o

-When someone is a real friend and they realise that they hurt you really badly, they are less likely to forgive themselves than you are.

-Even if it doesn't absolve you of wrong-doing, a sincere apology helps.

-The Cubs vs. Cardinals rivalry is the friendliest in baseball. Whereas going to a Dodgers vs. Giants game will result in at minimum a black eye if you are anywhere near a fan of the opposing team.

-The sound of rain on the roof is strangely comforting.

Facebook has a way of wasting a ridiculous amount of time. Always.

Hmmm. I should put that on the barn wall.

-Do not swear at people bigger than you unless you have big(ger) allies.

-Do not follow the cat up the tree.

-Do not get on the bad side of teenaged girls. 0_o
