To disguise a lack of knitting content I’m going to join fellow bloggers in a “Ten On Tuesday” post. Today’s list… some things my mother told me over the years.
1. Always keep a nice, heavy cast-iron skillet in your kitchen.
2. Everyone has to sleep sometime. If a man ever hits you, wait until he’s asleep then whack him good with that cast iron skillet. Make the first hit count (knock him out), add a few more for good measure, then leave and never go back. When he wakes up the words “Griswold Cast Iron #9” should be imbedded on his forehead.
3. Avoid men with cooking trademarks on their foreheads.
4. Don’t drink too much coffee.
5. Drink more water.
6. Go outside everyday and get some fresh air, even if there’s a hurricane. You’ll feel better.
7. Don’t twist your stitches while knitting.
8. Don’t check your brain at the door when you go to college.
9. All politicians are the same.
10. When pulling weeds, make sure and get the roots out too.
Thankfully I’ve never had to worry about #2, but I do have a nice collection of cast iron cookware. I drink way too much coffee and not enough water though. I can’t help but think that number 10 is more than just gardening advice. Happy Tuesday!
