That’s What She Said
In celebration of Mother’s Day, I am dedicating my editor’s note to our moms and all of the prodigious advice they dished out over the years. Read on for their (somewhat successful?) verbal attempts to mold us into polite, responsible, young women and men. You’ve probably heard your own mother say a few of these…and everyone could use a reminder.
“Always blow out your candles before you leave the house.”
“Nothing good ever happens after midnight.”
“Choose your battles.”
“Never leave the house without underwear on.”
“Always have your own money.”
“It’s not what happens to you, it’s how you take it.”
“Take care of your own little bailiwick.”
“If you are going to lie, be a confident liar.”
“Treat other’s as you would like to be treated.”
And last, but certainly not least, one of my mom’s favorite sayings is “You attract more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.” In other words, you’ll get what you want faster by being nice to someone than you will by being nasty. Happy Mother’s Day!
