Thirteen Things I Learned from my Dad:
1. If you're going to get in trouble at school, let it be for talking too much to all of your many friends. Sociable is not a bad thing.
2. When putting together an outfit, choose the least noticeable color in the busier item, and make that your accent color. Makes it pop.
3. French toast is a breakfast of champions.
4. When you borrow something, whether it's an accessory or car or a house, leave it better than you found it.
5. How to keep from falling down on roller skates. (You have to say "hibbety-hobbety-hoobety." It works.)
6. How to throw a party. (Love is in the details. Don't skimp where you can be extravagant.)
7. It doesn't matter how much money he spends on you. It matters how he treats you.
8. Never let your kids wonder if you love them.
9. Ice cream is always a good idea.
10. A person can make a solid career out of being a good listener.
11. If you raise your kids, you spoil your grandkids. If you spoil your kids, you raise your grand kids.
12. How to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
13. Strong men love smart women.
