Things I’ve Learned

Welcome to a new feature on MadMup.com. I’ve lived longer than most of my readers have, so maybe there’s a thing or two I can warn you about. And, as I’ve heard it said, “If you can’t be a good example, you’ll just have to serve as a horrible warning.”

  • a small Blizzard from Dairy Queen is every bit as good and filling as a medium, with slightly less “bad stuff” in it
  • it’s worth it to take a long trip to see friends you don’t get to see often
  • your outlook on life really does make a difference on how life affects you
  • you should re-try things you know you don’t like every so often, just to see if your tastes have changed
  • if your closest friends and most trusted advisors are telling you there’s something you need to change in your life, it’s possible they have your best interests at heart and you should listen to what they’re telling you

Watch for future episodes of “Things I’ve Learned,” where we’ll talk about things like how there’s a Seinfeld episode for just about any topic and why cats are a perfect example of selfishness.

    Just a few of the reasons why I think this "quack is awesome…he's kinda smartish.

    When you say you've lived longer than most of your readers have….does that mean you are simply older than your average reader? Or have your readers been dying off? If that's the case, you may want to warn your readers about that! :)

    Don't look now but I thought I was the perfect example of selfishness. Yea, I'd like to learn from your mistakes…but I've been studying Gods word for years and I’m still trying to learn from the Israelites. I'm not convinced I'm going to get it.

    I had to learn the Blizzard lesson the hard way. Thanks for nothing! :P :D

    Point #4 can backfire. 2 nights ago I tried a food item I hadn't eaten in a long time, only to find I have developed an allergic reaction to it.
