  • kids understand what your talking about more than you think. even when you're being vague or think you're talking in code
  • instead of yelling at kids and getting angry at them - reason with them! novel concept, i know. i always remember that problems were solved much faster when my father took me aside, calmly explained that i was being a brat/difficult/an asshole and that it was upsetting my mother. he would ask me what the problem was and then try to explain to me how if i stopped doing whatever it was, how things could go so much easier. it always worked.

a selection of my personal favorites from The 99 Rules for Living in Savannah

  • 1. Call it "The Book." You read it once. Years ago. Got it?
  • 2. Parking Services is very, very efficient. Don't test them.
  • 5. When asked about the estimated completion date of Truman Parkway, laugh.
  • 9. On St. Patrick's Day, don't count on parking north of, say, DeRenne Avenue.
  • 10. Leave the Spanish moss alone.
  • 11. Perpetuate the myth that Victory Drive has the longest line of palm trees in the world.
  • 12. If a tourist asks what that rank odor in the air is, say it's the smell of money.
  • 13. Yield when entering a square.
  • 16. Emphasize "East" or "West" when giving your address to a pizza delivery place.

  • this too shall pass. ~mom
  • "you can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but you can't pick your friends nose." ~ dad
  • "don't become too famous or else they might make a statue out of you. and then you'll spend eternity with pigeons crapping all over you." ~ dad, again
  • "every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." ~silly lyrics that i tell myself over and over
  • "If you’re worried about someone who dislikes you, first ask yourself whether they’re an asshole. If you don’t like them, and they don’t like you, that’s not a problem. That’s a mutual understanding." via mighty girl
