Sheer and Utter Nonsense

Over years you get to hear some funny sayings. Some make sense at the time, some much later and some are just rubbish and always will be. Most will make you smile at the time. I thought I might start listing some of these out and let you decide if anything makes sense. Hopefully some will give you a wry smile at least:

When discussing an event with Karen that did not go our way but there was a chance to resolve it later, reminded me of a problem at home when I washed some towels without reading the care/washing instructions first. They cam good after a second wash using the correct temparature, washing powder, washing cycle and dryer cycle and most importantly, no fabric softener:

Sometimes it take a second wash to get the towels clean.

One particular TV show host always ends with a reminder to be humble and grateful to others. So much nicer than the usual "watch us next week", to which I respond, TV don't tell me what to do.

And remember, I'm ... and I thank you for watching.

Over the years I have had to deal with some unsavourory characters. I take time to remind myself of this. Although a bit patronising, it helps, sometimes:

We are all God's children. Some are more childlike than others, that's all.

One of Sy Roberton's saying to which I live by:

Work hard, nap hard. That's what I always say, Jack.

The adventure rider's creed:

Safety third.

I guess fun and advneture are first and second?

Just read this one from a university lecturer:

Don't mistake the map for the terrain.

I think that's pretty good.

This one is more serious:

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17

I guess I will post up some more when I am feeling more pretentious and trying to avoid writing assignments soon.
