5 things I've learned in my 44 years on this Earth...

1. Never EVER ask someone when they're due, unless you are absolutely positively sure they're pregnant.

2. Living above your means and/or trying to keep up with the Joneses will eventually lead to disaster.

3. Drinking to overcome social anxiety is another recipe for disaster.

4. If someone talks about other people to you, you can be damn sure they'll gossip about you.

5. Nobody likes a bragger, but if you meet one, try to understand that they're probably insecure, so give them some attention. (Consider it your good deed for the day.)

More to come...

Happy Sunday!

Oh how awful I felt when I did just that, asked an old friend when she was having her baby. She answered me saying "What are you talking about, I'm not pregnant!"

I could have crawled away somewhere. Let me have an extra large coffee right now!

I learned my lesson a long time ago when I asked someone when they were due and they weren't pregnant. I think I was 24 at the time. I felt horrible. Never thought about the gossip thing, but very true too. Nice advice.

Words to live by. Except number three... when in uncomfortable social situations - vodka tonics are my very best friends.

And I think you shouldn't ask even when you know the person's pregnant -- don't pregnant women always get tired of answering the same question???

Interesting, Maybe you should add Buy Sex Toys so people can explore their sexuality as well.
