10 random things I hope to teach himmer

1. No matter what - do not believe what your grandfather says about me.
2. You'll catch more flies with honey than vinegar. But a pound of bullcrap will get you even further.
3. Trust me when I tell you learn to play a musical instrument now.
4. Beer before liquor, never sicker. Liquor before beer, never fear.
5. Love. Love what you do. Love where life takes you. Love the one who comes with you.
6. This is not to be confused with "Love the one you're with" which is a bad song AND bad advice.
7. Appreciate your mother. I do.
8. Your high school sweetheart is just a practice run.
9. 12 points to a pica; 6 picas to an inch.
10. I don't care what George Lucas says; Han shot first.

This is the most beautiful, perfect list of "advice to my not-yet-born child" I've ever read. Even the part about picas. (Although I would recommend learning metric conversions instead... more widespread practicle usage).

so himmer is free to believe what his aunt and uncles say about you? sweet. :)

I like to think that himmer will be smart enough to know that his aunts and uncles are full of it. So I wasn't planning on teaching himmer that - it should come naturally. :-P

Grandfathers have a natural charisma which can cloud the mind of young child. Hence the advance warning.

And for the record, by "natural charisma" I mean bribes involving candy, toys and cash.
