Lauren’s Nuggets of Wisdom

November 23, 2009


Welcome to a new feature. Share your nugget with me, and I will take credit as if it were my own.

1. Don’t try to multi-task by brushing your teeth while vacuuming. Neither will get done very well.

    I like to brush my teeth and read. It’s harder to floss and read though… 🙁


  2. Brad Said on:

    3. If you don’t like diet drinks because of the artificial sweeteners, try adding a little water to each glass of regular soda. But be careful not to add too much. At some point, a mixture of water and Pepsi can be almost bitter.


  3. Lloyd Said on:

    4. Always try to be drawn from the front. Drawings from the side can make you look flat (not that there’s anything wrong with that).


  4. Kristi Said on:

    6. When your large, ivory-colored pet jumps into a tub of used oil, thinking it was water to cool off, the best soap for cleaning him up is Dawn. After 6 baths in 2 hours, it really does cut grease out of the way.


  5. Karla Said on:

    7. Consider having cats as pets instead of dogs. Cats bathe themselves and don’t jump into water to cool down.


  6. Deanne Said on:

    8. Use a regular hair comb in the spring to comb out the winter hairs that are falling out and matting up your cat’s coat.

    9. Don’t wait until summer to comb out the matted fur in your outdoor cat.

    10. Mark the comb you use for your cat, so that you don’t accidentally use it on yourself.


  7. Ann Said on:

    Do not play leapfrog with a unicorn.


  8. Peggy Said on:

    12. If a doctor prescribes you a heavy duty cream for a fast spreading allergic rash you have but the cream makes your skin fall off in big bloody chunks…stop using the cream, even though the doctor says it will get worse before it gets better, hang in there. You could be allergic to the cream too.


  9. Gretchen Said on:

    Do not underestimate the power of hand sanitizer. It can be used to remove silly putty from hair. (human hair, that is. Haven’t tried cat hair.)


  10. Curt Said on:

    13. One who grasps cow’s teat with cold hands gets face slapped with manure covered tail.


  11. Beth Said on:

    14. When you put a diaper on a baby boy, tuck.


  12. Curt Said on:

    15. Eating too much Peanut Butter Captain Crunch makes roof of mouth sour.


  13. Karla Said on:

    16. If you’re going to eat sunflower seeds to stay awake, get the unsalted kind.
