As I mentioned earlier in the week, our son is leaving for his third year of college. At times like this you wonder if you told them the really important things, you know? Like:
1. Don't stick your fingers in a light socket. Don't stick them in a dark socket either.
2. Don't lick a metal pole when it's winter. Summer is fine.
3. Don't text when driving. Don't listen to music when driving. Don't drive when you're driving.
4. Be careful not to cut yourself while shaving, you may nick an artery.
5. Make sure your hamburger is burned to a crisp. That way you won't get sick.
6. Don't stay up too late, you need your rest or you'll wind up sleeping through your favorite t.v. show.
7. Don't forget to eat at least once a day, preferably three times a day. Remember that food that comes in a bag isn't really food.
8. Watch your money. Spending it and watching it as it goes away is not watching it.
9. Don't talk to strangers. This includes professors, students, and anyone not willing to submit a full resume, references, and their driver's license so that I can run it through the state database.
10. Don't forget to call home sometime. Call me if you forget our phone number and I'll give it to you.
So, can you guys think of anything I forgot?
