Wisdom of the aged

Looking back on forty years of existence I have learned… eh… learnt… (shit)… realized a couple of things. (this wisdom will now be dispensed in point form forthwith)

  1. Don’t chop up chilies and then go down on your wife (or probably anyone for that matter)
  2. Heel cream is NOT toothpaste, even when enclosed in similar packaging with similar viscosity
  3. If it tastes funny, stop brushing.
  4. Your child vomiting on you is less onerous than your date vomiting on you. (which is very onerous… especially if you’re both naked)
  5. Operating on yourself with a pair of nail scissors may not lead to optimum results
  6. And also infection.
  7. And finally… your co-workers may be smarter than you give them credit for…

      1. Wait… we’re still talking about gymnastics right? I always pictured myself as one of those lithe fourteen year olds with the ribbon… and the hula hoop.

    1. That is very Freudian. Well spotted! I don’t have much hope for improvement though… being as old as I am now. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Or something like that 😀
