If you have the good fortune to stay alive 48 years, you can’t help but learn a few things. I hope this saves you some of the trouble. If swelling, discoloration, or bleeding occurs, put down the list and notify your physician.
#31 Pretend that you belong somewhere, and people will usually assume you do.
#32 Never. Call. The. Cops. There is no bad situation that can’t be made worse by the addition of the authorities.
#33 Stay limber. You will be glad you did when the cops show up and/or people finally realize that you do not belong.
#34 For fuck’s sake, keep your hands off of your fucking face! Stroking your chin in a pantomime of deep consideration is, in reality, anything but. This is how you get sick all the time.
#35 I was a smart kid but not very wise. Now, I’m wise as hell but still do things that aren’t very smart. Endeavor to be both and see where you end up.
