Rule 40. Don’t date a girl/boy who smokes.

Because eventually they will look like a wrinkly catchers mitt. Plus they’ll smell like an ashtray and your mom and I will not approve. Smoking is a terrible habit, nothing good comes from it. The best thing that can happen from it is someone thinks you’re cool. The worst thing? Oh just dying of course. Sounds like that’s not an even payoff.

Rule 37. Always pack light.

If you pack light you wont need to vacuum seal your stuff like I did in Munich. Except underwear, always pack a couple extra of those. The benefits of packing light allow you to not ever have to worry about losing your luggage, because it’s always a carry-on!  Yes that is my bag kids.

Rule 33. If you do stupid modifications to your car, I will disown you.


Seriously, I will.

This does not mean you cannot work on your car. It just means if you are driving a 1995 (or by your age, 2020?) Toyota Corolla, you cannot tint the windows,add rims, put a spoiler on it, or do anything else like that to it.


Because you are wasting your money while driving around something that makes everyone else including your parents question your sanity.


Rule 32. You can never go wrong with Mac & Cheese

You are going to eat it a lot at our house. Why? Because it’s my favorite food and I enjoy making it.

It’s simple, yet delicious. Here are a few guidelines for perfecting your mac & cheese experience.

1. If you can make it at home, with all your own ingredients, do it.  It will always taste better. (Make some macaroni. Then  melt butter in a small sauce pan (half a stick, add some flour to it so it thickens, then add some heavy cream/half&half/or Whole Milk. You know have a cream sauce, add your favorite cheese and now you have CHEESE SAUCE) Already 95% better than most mac & cheeses you will eat.

2. When ordering mac & cheese out, try and order it as a side to another delicious dish. Mac & Cheese completely by itself, while delicious, can get a little heavy. BUT as a delicious side to something like say…fried chicken or steak, now you’re cooking with gas.

3. You can try Easy Mac because it looks great on the box. But you wont ever have it at our house.

4. If you are at a fancy restaurant don’t be afraid to order the mac & cheese, this has almost always paid off for me. Why wouldn’t you want a great chef making an all time favorite? You’re paying top dollar, so you can order whatever you want.

5. If you are at a fast food chain, I would honestly avoid the mac & cheese. Most of the time it stinks and it ruins what you had in mind. Boston Market is the exception, even though they probably won’t be around when you are old enough to make decisions. But just know that there once was a place called Boston Market, and they served some delicious chicken and sides.
