SMALL TALK SIX: My List of Six



Small Talk over at Mom Blogs at MomDot.com has a weekly list meme and this weeks topic is 6 things that are obvious but some people still need to hear them. Check out the other lists posted this week. Here are mine.
  • Don't drink and drive. Obvious.
  • Don't take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night. Haven't done it but it must be a bad idea.
  • Don't wear short skirts or booty shorts. You are a legend in your own mind.
  • Don't ever date one of your kids friends no matter how mature he/she is. This will not end well and you know it.
  • Don't ever ask a woman when her baby is due unless you are so sure she is pregnant that you can see the baby coming out.
  • Don't put anything on the internet that you don't want everyone in the whole wide world to be able to see. Once it is out there it is there forever.
ADDENDUM: Just a reminder to all of you that I am running a contest right now. Enter here.

  1. Loved your lawyer joke and this post too and I also love your title lol.

    When we searched for my dad's side of the family tree, we found that for five generations they lived in exactly the same town in England, in fact it was almost the same square mile, not one of them lived anywhere else, so it's amazing that I find myself living in the USA. I wonder what my great, great, great grandfather would have thought of that. I love genealogy. Kathy.

  5. When I came back from maternity leave for my first son (I'm from Canada so I get a year off), a guy at work asked me if I was pregnant. I wasn't of course, just hadn't gotten rid of the belly completely. I did not feel good at all.

  6. LOL@ the sleeping pill and laxative. No, I can't imagine that's a good idea.

  7. The preggo one is great! My dad (a great ladies man) once asked the hostess at the restaurant we were eating at when she was due. She wasn't PG and he was horrified. Hee-hee. Loved seeing him with his red face! Great one!
    Have a great weekend!

  9. May I add "Don't visit the tattoo artist while under the influence of anything?" I guess I just did. Added it. Not a tattoo. The post. Oh, just delete this.

  10. Mama: GGG grandpa would have thought you were wild and irresponsible. Good for you.

    Maria: A fellow Canadian. Did you smack him. I think you are allowed to in Canada.

    Amber: I wouldn't have wanted to eat what your Dad was served that night.

    Florida Sue: We have no proof that you don't have any tatoos do we. DO WE!!!

  14. The skirts and booty shorts get to me too. Seriously, there's a certain age when people should be banned from shopping in the juniors section anymore.

  15. What a great list! You had both me and my husband laughing. We needed that today, more than you know. His Mom passed away yesterday.

    Thanks for the spirit lift.
