The Wisdom Routine

Does it gall you or amuse you that things your elders told you as a child are true or proven "proverbs"? A bit of both for me.

My grandfather used to say two things that stick with me.

"What you can't carry in your head, you carry in your feet."

Meaning whatever you don't remember to bring, you're going to go back and get it.

"My Daddy didn't have any dumb kids."

Said when we were trying to fool him.

The best/worst one, however, is one of my Dad's, that is biting me in the rear end right now as I slog through NaBloPoMo.

"Everyone has 24 hours in a day. What you choose to do with them is up to you."
