50 Things…

24 Feb


While perusing Eat Run Read tonight I stumbled upon a link Mollie posted to a column by Chicago Tribune writer Eric Zorn called 50 things I’ve learned in 50 years, a partial list in no particular order.

So fabulous.

Here are some of my favorites…

Promptness shows respect.

It’s not “political correctness” that dictates that we try not to insult others’ beliefs and identities. It’s common decency.

Don’t waste your breath proclaiming what’s really important to you. How you spend your time says it all.

Anyone who judges you by the kind of car you drive or shoes you wear isn’t someone worth impressing.

Four things that most people think are lame but really are a lot of fun: barn dancing, charades, volleyball and sing-alongs.

Your education isn’t complete until you’ve learned to take a hint.


Thank you Mr. Zorn.  I’ll be holding on to these for awhile!
