Chloe Traeger’s words of wisdom

From one of my favorite chick-lits, “Head over heels” by Jill Shalvis:

  • If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried. [Heheh I should try to remember this one]
  • If things don’t seem right, try going left. [Profound! I like this one.]
  • It’s always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to do it.
  • Why was man created before woman? Because you always need a first draft before the final copy.
  • When you don’t know what you’re doing, fake it.
  • It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others. [How come she’s talking about me??]
  • Always remember, you’re unique. Just like everyone else.
  • A closed mouth gets no foot, though that’s hard to remember in the moment.
  • Sisters. Love ’em or fight ’em, but no matter how hard you try, you can’t ignore ’em.
  • Just when you think you’ve hit rock bottom, someone’ll throw you a shovel.
  • I’ve always wanted to be somebody. I should have been more specific.
  • A guilty conscience needs no accuser.
  • Smile. It’s the second best thing you can do with your lips.
  • They say money talks, but all mine ever says is ‘good-bye, sucker.’
  • Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.
  • Multitasking means screwing up several things at once.
  • Sure, good things come to those who wait – but they’re the leftovers from those who got there first. [LOL, this’s gotta be my favorite!]
  • Sex is like air; it’s not important unless you aren’t getting any. [Amen]
  • The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the ability to reach it. [LOL! Not sure which is the cause and which is the effect though]
  • You have the right to remain silent. Otherwise, anything you say might be misquoted and used against you. [hrrmp. If you can remember to keep shut…]
  • Anything worth taking seriously is also worth making fun of. [Totally agree]
  • Women might not like to admit their age, but men don’t like to act theirs.
  • Just when you think you have a handle on life, it breaks.
  • If they don’t have good adventures in heaven, I’m not going.
  • A closed mind is a good thing to lose. [Are you listening? :D]
