My dad always spoke in bumper sticker while I was growing up. Time-tested, Irish Catholic-saturated maxims. If you didn't collide with one of his sayings on your own, the universe would impel a situation so it could find you.
Hank, my ever-wise father, had a saying for every stupid move I made. At least it felt that way. Instead of the "told-ya-so" routine, he would whip out a time-honored adage in the form of a soft-toned proverb. So now I will share them with you.
