261. Zoo

The zoo is a wonderland for your children. Go on the first warm day of spring and buy season tickets; it’s cheaper than going twice.

260. Carnation

Son, don’t ever give a woman a carnation. It’s a sure sign you don’t have a clue.

Daughter, carnations are a man’s way of saying he didn’t care enough to put more thought into it. Not the kind of man you want to be with.

259. Rightly Said

Spelling correctly begins with saying it correctly.

258. Clean

If you make a mess, clean it.

257. Leaders

Workers will know what, leaders will know why.

256. Commit

Pencils are weak.

Commit. Use a pen.

255. Dad’s Quotes: First Draft

“Only in sports is the first draft the best round.”

—Your Dad

254: Quotes: Marcus Aurelius on Good Living

“It would be a man’s happiest lot to depart from mankind without having had any taste of lying and hypocrisy and luxury and pride.”

—Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Book IX, #2

253. Previews

There was a time when the only thing shown before movies was previews, not commercials.

252. Waitresses (Server)
