    Things I learned the hard way

    As a parent, I am always trying to protect my son from things that might hurt him. Of course, some things we just have to learn the hard way (like don't say you were drafted by a major league team if you weren't).

    I learned the hard way not to put on a pull-over sweater when the ceiling fan is on.

    Anyone else have any lessons. Anyone. Oldrighthander?

    Not to intentionally step on bees with your bare feet.

    Not to stick your finger in an electrical socket.

    You don't tug on Superman's cape
    You don't spit into the wind
    You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
    And you don't mess around with Jim Coombs, da do da do...

    Don't call you second wife by your first wife's name.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Ok, I'll bite. Kitchen chairs are for sitting on and not standing. Also, don't assume that "nothing" actually means nothing.

    The answer to "does this make me look overweight"? ... is ALWAYS no.

    I've learned to ponder the ramifications of the decision to have "Just one more"

    To beware when fly fishing in the wind. The hook may come back and hook you in the nose.

    And to use barbless hooks.

    Don't tell your spouse that her/his Christmas / Birthday / Anniversary present is on lay-away and that they will be getting it "soon".

    Don't wait until you are 8 years into your second marriage before you realize your first wife is still your life insurance beneficiary like I did.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
