Recently a third grade class in Gallup, New Mexico was asked to create a
chart of good advice for themselves and others to follow. They arrived at
sixteen items they deemed essential for success in life.
THE GOOD ADVICE CHART
1. You never know when a bit of string will be useful.
2. Always help people.
3. Never spit on your shoes.
4. Pick good friends.
5. Six feet on the floor. [your 2 feet and the 4 legs of your chair]
6. Get an education so you can get a job.
7. Never mess with Greek Gods.
8. Never take personal checks from a gypsy.
10. Pick up your own mess.
11. A backup plan never hurts.
12. Never trust a leprechaun.
13. Do not put a plastic bag on your head.
14. Armpit noises can cost you reading marks.
15. Never go up a strange chimney.
16. Pay attention.
