Life lessons.

September 9, 2006

The topic for blogging for books this month was when you have learnt a harsh life lesson. I have spent a week trying to decide what the biggest lesson I have ever learnt was. In the end however I just ended up feeling very lucky because I realised that I have never been through anything that can be considered harsh in this way. I did realise at the end of my introspection however that I have learnt a lot of little life lessons along the way, that I pay attention to everyday in every decision I make!

I always need something to read.

Despite practicing for 6 months I cannot juggle.

Lycra is nobody’s friend.

Trying to match my sister drink for drink results in me falling asleep under a tree and being woken up by a French security guard and an Alsatian.

I blub at everything, especially soaps on television and girlie films.

Shell suits will haunt you for the rest of your life.

A little bit of what you fancy is great for the soul.

Walking barefoot in grass is a great way to relax.

Vomit will go up your nose if you throw up with your head upside down.

Getting a rubber stuck up your nose will end in a visit to the hospital.

If someone is crying comedy tapdancing always cheers them up.

Dyeing your hair purple may get you fired from your job.

Never use a portaloo at Glastonbury at night without a torch.

If I give someone directions they will get lost.

Pretty shoes always hurt.

Episodes of Friends can be watched over and over again.

    Thank you just a girl for getting that other image out of my mind! 🙂

    Great list.

    I imagine that getting the other sort of rubber stuck in your nose might also require a hospital visit.

  • Reply Tim-tambolini September 11, 2006 at 3:15 pm

    I was going to make a comment about the rubber in the nose, but it seems that that’s what everyone focused on.

    I like that post a lot. You’ve done some pretty crazy things I gather.

    One thing…if you take a torch into a PortaLoo–won’t that ignite the heavy concentration of methane gas and turn it into a PortaLoo-Rocket-to-the-moon?!! LOL

    I know a girl who got her skirt caught in the back of her knickers and walked out to the bus stop…and she thought “wow I must look hot today, everyone keeps looking at me and smiling”…she thought this for at least 30 minutes while she waited….until some little old lady told her her bum was hanging out, as they boarded the bus!! LOL….hope you didn’t suffer that!
