Rules

Last night the wife took the dog for a walk, as she walked out the door I reminded her to take a knife. She said it's still daylight, I kindly reminded her of rule #2. They of course fall after the teachings of Christ and the "Big Ten".

Now failure happens and rules get broken, no doubt. But a man should have his own rules in life that should be followed by him. Why? See rule #25 for the answer.

  1. Love God.
  2. Always have a knife.
  3. Don't put your hands on anyone, require the same from everyone else.
  4. Don't allow yourself to be wronged or insulted.
  5. Everyone lies.
  6. Watch the hands, hands kill.
  7. If it's not yours don't take it.
  8. Pockets are to be used to assist you in life.
  9. All guns are loaded.
  10. It is better to seek forgiveness than ask permission.
  11. Keep your word.
  12. Keep an eye on the door.
  13. Have a plan.
  14. Never apologize if you aren't wrong or for doing the job right.
  15. Don't mess with the coffee.
  16. It is better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you are not.
  17. Have a second plan
  18. Have a way to make fire.
  19. Never bother a Holyman unneccessarily.
  20. Don't bother the driver, he is driving.
  21. If you aren't willing to lead, don't bitch about being led.
  22. Cigars are acceptable. Cigarrettes are not.
  23. Make love to your wife atleast once a week. A loved wife is a happy wife.
  24. Work.
  25. Make it home.

If you don't mind, I'd like to do the same.

Matthew said...

Brandon, knock yourself out. And thanks.

...and thank you. Words to live by, in my opinion. I can't say I've ever been in a situation where #19 would be necessary, still a good thing to know, should the situation present itself.

Thanks again!
