Advice to my un-created son

For just in case I am ever blessed with a little Prince, I have started a list. I wont teach him about the ‘birds and the bees’, how to shave or even to ride a bike.. that’s what Dad will be for.

But below is just a little of what I hope to teach my son one day..

  • Don’t trust anyone who cant be kind to small children or animals.
  • If you ask a girl out, always pay.
  • If it is right, it happens—The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.
  • If a street performer makes you stop walking, you owe him a buck.
  • Never cancel dinner plans by text message. Especially with your Mama!
  • More times than not, you will be judged by your shoes.
  • There is just no good reason to look into a woman’s handbag.
  • The best way to ruin an apology is with an explanation.
  • Women are crazy, irrational, needy and amazingly wonderful creatures.
  • Don’t ever get drunker than your boss
  • Return a borrowed car with a full tank.
  • Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
  • On occasion, unplug.
  • If you are lucky enough to be invited into a woman’s life.. this is a privialge, not a right and you will be there only as long as you deserve to be. Always woo. Always respect. Always cherish.
  • Dont ever let your woman/mother mow the lawn.
  • If you cant see your shirt cuff, your jacket doesn’t fit.
  • Never shake someone’s hand sitting down. Your grandad always told me this, and since he is wise, you should listen.
  • Walk tall, kick ass, learn to speak arabic, love music, and never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, lovers, and warriors – Hunter S. Thompson
  • And like I told your sister, Be generous. with your time, your money, your heart. If there was a single lesson I could hope on my best day to impart to you, this would be it.
