We’re Never Too Young…Or Too Old…To Learn

by Curt Kovener          


After last week’s observations on the aged and the ages, some readers sent in some of their own musings of life experiences for young and old.

The great truths about life, that little children have learned

•No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptize cats.

•When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don’t let her brush your hair.

•If your sister hits you, don’t hit her back. They always catch the second person.

•Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.

•You can’t trust dogs to watch your food.

•Don’t sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.

•Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.

•You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.

•Don’t wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.

•The best place to be when you’re sad is Grandma’s lap.

The great truths about life, that adults have learned

•Raising teenagers is like nailing Jell-O to a tree.

•Wrinkles don’t hurt.

•Families are like fudge…mostly sweet, with a few nuts.

•Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s nut that held its ground.

•Laughing is good exercise. It’s like jogging on the inside.

•Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.
