This is a question Advice from Old People

Sometimes, just sometimes, old people say something worth listening to. Ok, so it's like picking the needle out of a whole haystack of mis-remembered war stories, but those gems should be celebrated.

Tell us something worthwhile an old-type person has told you.

Note, we're leaving the definition of old up to you, you smooth-skinned youngsters.

That one
I remember one piece of advice given to me by one bloke, who's name I don't remember at a work party I forget. I was about 13, it was a forces thing that my Dad was hosting. He said:

"Think with that head (pointing to my forehead) and never that head (pointing down)"

Good advice, shame I never heeded it.

[Chats? What Chats?]

PS - Sorry Big-girls-blouse :)

When it's 'angry'
the wee head always rules the big head.

The big head frequently regrets this at a later date.

I would rather
poke a girly gently in the back in the morning with my wee head than headbutt her in the spine with my noggin.

thinking with both of them. I find it makes me surprisingly productive (of course, my little head is much, much smaller than yours... I hope).
