Lori's Essential Life List Rules and Theories
2. You either like John Travolta or you like George Clooney. Maybe neither. But never both.
3. Ladies: If your dad or equivalent had facial hair, you'll be attracted to men with facial hair. Gentlemen: To a lesser extent, if your mother or equivalent had long hair, you'll be attracted to long hair.
4. Deciding between 'who' and 'whom' is easy. Just take your sentence, replace the who/whom with the word 'him'. If it sounds right with 'him', it is 'whom'. If it sounds wrong, it is 'who'. I call it the 'M' rule. (Sometimes the sentence will need to be restructured to make it work, but if restructured correctly, the 'M' rule will still work.)
5. Likewise, if you are going to say something about somebody else, first replace their name with yours. If it sounds right with your name, it is okay. If it sounds wrong, it is not.
6. Cake recipes can be made slightly less fattening by replacing the oil with applesauce.
7. In relationships, there is no such person as 'The One'. There are only 'The Not Ones'.
8. If you pee with the door open, your children will learn to use the toilet faster. (This theory is still in the beta testing phase.)
9. Make your bed every day, and your room will always appear cleaner.
10. It's just hair. It will grow.
