Amber Alvarez' Rules of Caution

Things I have learned, so you don't have to:
ROC#1: Don't kiss library books. It isn't sanitary.ROC#2: If you're going to wear pantyhose you're really going to have to shave.

ROC#3: If your date asks if you want some Coke, don't assume he's talking Cola. ROC#4: There are certain inappropriate things you shouldn't discuss with coworkers.You know the drill: No one's going to appreciate DUNE the way you appreciat DUNE.
(sigh)

ROC#5: If somebody asks you for a favor,
find out what it is before you say 'sure'.
ROC#6: Trix are for kids. I used to think those commercials were so mean! In the second grade I felt worse for the Trix rabbit than I did for my spelling tutor (pour kid) --I crack me up. Now I realize those commercials were a public service announcement for the over 19 set.

ROC#7: If you're a fish and he's a bird... best to swim away now, little fish, before someone gets hurt.**
**Exception: You're a girl and he's a vampire...
If that's the case,
throw all caution to the wind.

(please revisit ROC#1)
