Lessons I have learned:
I will never try to substitute Tang for orange peel in cookies again.
I will never fall face first into poison ivy again.
I will never try an oyster to see if I am really still allergic to them again.
I will never fall asleep on the beach on a cloudy day again.
I will never severely sprain my ankle by falling into a patch of poison ivy again.
I will never drive around the Capitol at 11 PM in a rental car without a map again.
I will never put children, bunk beds, and a ceiling fan together in the same room again.
I will never try to unstick the pancake batter at the bottom of a blender with a knife while the blender is running again.
I will never play basketball barefoot again.
I will never use “parked” skis & poles (the little British kids left them behind when they scattered)to stop myself again.
I will never start canoeing before securing the car keys again.
Last but not least:
I will never tell my beloved “No, my dad’s not old-fashioned. You don’t have to ask for my hand…” again.
