    Default 25 Things a son should know

    1. Itís harder to take a punch than to throw one.

    2. Find the people who make you laugh and follow them around like a golden retriever. Laughing is like a vitamin. You can never get enough of it.

    3. A guy who hugs a lot is comfortable in his own skin.

    4. Read poetry.

    5. Thereís nothing wrong with looking at porn, but having sex with someone you care about is a thousand times more fun.

    6. When you feel like crying, for joy or out of pain, let 'er rip. If you donít get those tears out, they will calcify in your chest and make it harder to love as fully and deeply as you would like to.

    7. Crank the tunes when you have to clean the house.

    8. Look deeply into the eyes of the one you are falling for to get a glimpse of his or her soul.

    9. Spend a chunk of time every year with people who are much less fortunate than you are. It will fill your heart with gratitude.

    10. Never lie about anything really important. The first lie will cause you to have to lie again and again to cover up the truth. And each time youíll chip away an important piece of yourself.

    11. Find work that makes you happy. If you can change the world in the process all the better.

    12. If you get the chance to travel across the country or across the globe, take it. You will learn way more from people who are different from you than the ones who are the same.

    13. Doing nothing is better than doing the wrong thing. But you are going to make mistakes. Tons of them. The real question is what you will learn from them.

    14. Donít be in any rush to get married. Divorce really sucks. A good marriage can start when youíre 21 or 61.

    15. Thereís nothing wrong with a Cuban cigar once in a while.

    16. Money and power look good, but they wonít fill your being with joy the way your family will.

    17. If you like guys, I will fight for your ability to have equal rights in every way.

    18. Find a way to move your body that gives you pleasure. You donít have to be an athlete to be a man, but your body is a temple and you need to care for it, enjoy it, and use it to express yourself.

    19. Drinking can be fun in moderation. Just make sure to ask for help if you find yourself blacking out or doing things you regret.

    20. Radical honesty will get you very far in this world. Most people donít have the guts to speak their mind, regardless of the consequences.

    21. Always give your spouse birthday presents in bed.

    22. Find a spirituality that you can wear like a loose coat that keeps you warm no matter the weather. God should provide you comfort not make you feel ashamed of yourself.

    23. Sex is great but holding your spouse in the middle of the night is one of the best feelings any guy can have.

    24. Live passionately. Dream big. Donít back down.

    25. Always remember I love you, no matter what happens. You cannot lose me. I will always be there.
    It is what it is

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

    A very nice list. I'd like to think I'm on my way to making sure my little lad is aware of at least some of them!

    (He's smoking far too many Cuban cigars for a 7 year old, though...)
    I'm FEMALE...Deal with it!

    "Life's too short to stuff a mushroom"... Shirley Conran, 1975

    If you have ever seen That 70's Show, my family tells me I am basically the character Red and as such, as much as I want to be able to handle all things, I am not there yet

    Good points on the list though. Thought I would share because my old man gave me the abbreviated version that consisted of the following (left a lot of holes)

    1. Don't be an asshole
    2. Get a job
    3. Wash your hands
    4. Only assholes don't have house keys
    5. As long as you have cable and air conditioning, you do not know about poor

    And many of you will think I am joking

    Needless to say, he was quite the character
    It is what it is
