Some funny truths we learn as adults...  
1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

19 is so my brother. I can never understand him on the phone so I just move on. I don't agree with 6 either. Cursive is easier when taught right off the bat. Kinds draw is circles when they are that young and to force printing first makes things harder on them. When you are older the printing could be taught because you can make straight lines easily.

The private school I went to taught cursive to the kindergartners and they took to it easily and they had awesome penmanship. I was a teachers aid for them.

It definitely isn't a waste of time. My niece learned cursive in K but when she got to the public school they wouldn't let her use it. She lost the ability and now is struggling with it. I find that sad.

It's true. I feel like our learning processes is being dumbed down. It's amazing what they don't teach kids anymore or how they will pass them. My niece still struggles with her reading but she's going to graduate elementary school soon. She going to have such a struggle.

I agree. I feel like too many public schools don't support kids who are ahead of other kids. My niece could read fairly well when she got to her repeat of K in public school and they wouldn't let her read. She lost all confidence and because of lack of support and teaching reinforcement she lost a lot of it. She struggles with it now.

It is people who feel insecure that want to get rid of such programs. It has become commonplace to punish a child for being ahead of the class.

I too remember in elementary a fellow 3rd grader going into a 4th grade class for math because they were ahead of everyone else. I really think classes should be like that.

I remember my 6th grade class having different levels of math or reading. I was usually in the lowest but it made me work hard because I wanted to be in one of the other groups.

If your child is just not a academically gifted as another... you don't need to punish those that are.

It's true. Just because you're at the lower level (or grade level) doesn't make you less smart. It's the perfect opportunity for a parent to tell their child that there are people in the world who learn really easily or can hear it once and remember forever. Everyone has different gifts. Then point out one their child has.
