Advice From My Old Man Part 2

A continuation of this post   Please feel free to read the first before moving on to part 2 below:

More Advice From My Old Man :
  • Half a Valium and Breath Rite strip will give you the best sleep of your life : My Dad is what one would call an "A-Type" personality.  He probably only sleeps about 6 hours a night but every now and again he calms down.
  • I can't wait to get bored : Another thing about my Dad is that he always keeps himself busy.  Whether it is work, errands, or watching something on TV he tends to keep himself occupied.  He measures his success of calming down by whether or not he gets bored.  Getting bored, for him, is a victory in accomplishing so much that he has nothing left to do.
  • Cheese Popcorn is the greatest food on God's green earth : My Dad's ambrosia is Cheese Popcorn.  He travels for work every week and in every state he visits he knows the best place to get a bag of Cheese Popcorn.  When he travels, he makes sure there is enough room in his suitcase for a bag or two of Cheese Popcorn to take home.
  • There is a right way to load a dishwasher : My Dad has a system.  You must set up the bottom dishes so that top dishes also get clean.  For years I studied under this tutelage, however now I have a dishwasher with jets under the bottom and top rack, so...
  • Never stop just short of the finish line : Now I know this sounds like a piece of advice to persevere, push through against all odds.  But in actuality it a tool my father uses to up sell purchases.  "Look, you are already going to spend 550 dollars on a TV, but if just spend 625 you will get the TV you really want, don't stop short of the finish line."  Now let me be clear, he does not use this to sell things, he uses this to justify why he spend more money than he intended.  (This piece of advice goes so much deeper than I can get into here, I think I am going to have to do a separate post on this one.
  • Tuna Fish Casserole is always better the second day :  My Dad loves casseroles.  He is also a firm believer that it needs to "settle" overnight to reach it's true potential.  He also feels the same way about Cheetos, they need to breathe a little before enjoying them.

    My name is Angela and am from USA, I want to use this opportunity to thank my great Doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man Dr Osorba brought my husband back to me, i had two lovely kids for my husband, about four years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. I tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i should not worry about it at all, so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man’s email address. I was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just 48 hours and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully did what this great man asked me to do and for sure after 48 hours i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away, since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy, that’s why i want to say a big thank you to Dr Osorba Spiritual Temple. This great man made me to understand that there is no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man.
