Great Advice


Me: “It hurts me when I do this….”(picture me moving my elbow)

My DAD: “So don’t do that.”

Me: “But it hurts when I touch my arm.”

My DAD: “So don’t touch your arm.”

Me: “Is my arm broken?”

My DAD:  “I don’t know, try to move it.”

Me:  “But it hurts.”


Me;  “What kind of doctor are you?”

My DAD:  “Guts and Butts. It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it.”

Me: “but it’s my elbow.”

My DAD: “Like I said, don’t move it, you’ll be fine.”

Me:  “What if I die?”

My DAD:  “You’re not gonna die. You’re alive today.”

Me:  “What happens when we die?”

My DAD: “I don’t know much, but I can tell you this, life and death are like a two sided coin. On one side of the coin is life, and on the other side is death. One day we will die and go to heaven, and I promise you this, we won’t need money to pay for property once we get there.
