Words of Wisdom

Listening to the radio recently, I was reminded of some words of wisdom my mother shared with me years ago.

iHeartRadio’s Brooke and Jeffrey in the morning show were in the middle of a second date episode.  The pretext is this: if you go on a first date with someone and they ghost you (don’t contact you or return your calls, texts, messages etc), you contact the radio show to enlist their help to find out why. The funny part is that the ghostee is on the line listening to the ghoster’s reasons for their behaviour without the latter’s knowledge. After the dirty laundry is aired, both parties are then asked if they would be willing to go on a second date, at the expense of the radio station.

The young lady in this specific episode was (in my opinion) pretty high on herself…because (in her opinion) she’s really good-looking. When she only received a text from the ghostee within the next 24hrs, she moved on to the list of other guys she “swiped.”

You might think I’m wandering off-topic here, (I do that sometimes) but bear with me this time. I will get back to the words of wisdom from my mother.

Looks will get you the  First 5 Minutes

And after that, you’re on your own.

I heard these words of wisdom many times whenever I was primping (yes, I too was a vain teenager) in front of a mirror in preparation for an evening out.

What old-fashioned words of wisdom do you remember hearing that may not be so common today?
