List #2 – Funny Truths that Children & Adults learn

I am not sure where I got that list from, but sorting through old stacks of papers I found it in my handwriting. Its at least 10 years old, but feels still relevant. I especially like 2., 6. and 8.


GREAT TRUTHS little children learn: 

1. No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptise cats
2. When your mum is mad at your dad don’t let her brush your hair
3. If your sister hits you, don’t hit back. They always catch the second person
4. Never ask your 3-year-old brother
5. You can’t trust dogs watching your food to hold a tomato
6. Don’t sneeze when your hair is being cut
7. You can’t hide broccoli in a glass of milk
8. Deny everything
9. The best place to be when being sad is in grandma’s arms

GREAT TRUTHS adults learn:

1. Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a wall
2. Wrinkles don’t hurt
3. Families are like fudge, mostly sweet, with a few nuts
4. Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s nut that held the ground
5. Laughing is good exercise. It’s like jogging on the inside
6. Middle age is when you choose cereal for the fibre, not the toy
