Weekend Wisdom is a series that runs every Monday. We've had three days to make mistakes, come to realizations and learn new things. This series allows us to share those insights with others. Please leave your amusing, inspirational, useful and just plain hilarious 'weekend wisdom' in the comments section below.
Are you wiser now than you were on Friday?
I took my little sister (from the Big Brothers Big Sisters program) to see Cars 2 last week.
It was a really cute movie. I might have laughed more than she did... but that's not surprising as I laugh a lot.
Anyways... we got some popcorn to share. I hadn't eaten movie theater popcorn in... I don't know how long. When the movie was done I looked down and I had eaten half the large bucket. And I got so sick the next day.
My wisdom: DON'T get a huge tub of movie theater popcorn to share with an eight-year-old. She's only going to have a few handfuls in between her twizzlers and you'll mindlessly eat the rest, getting yourself sick. Just buy the small one :)
My other bit of wisdom:
Get to a water park really early and grab a spot that will have shade all day. You might think you want to get a really killer tan, and that shade is for suckers, but trust me, you'll want this place of respite during the day.
More to come on 'The Waterpark Capital of the World' later this week.
What is your weekend wisdom?
