I guess if I wanted to be totally pompous, I could call them the Upani-Shaidles.
But I don’t, so I’ll refer to them instead as Kathy’s Rules For Life (which barely sounds much better.)
We all have a set of expressions we carry around like a mental Swiss Army Knife – handy, almost foolproof “tools” we use to cut through BS. and navigate our surroundings.
Expressions like “Go with your gut” or “What would Ferris do?”
The one’s that saved me untold hours of confusion is “No one is ever just kidding.”
