  1. A true friend will stick with you through anything. Accuse his parents of murder? No problem. Sleep with his sister? That’s fine. Eat his food? You’re pushing it. Steal his car? Well… maybe not EVERYTHING.
  2. When in doubt, fake it. If you look busy and carry a clipboard no one will question you. If you look like you know what you’re talking about, people will believe you. If you can find a few facts to back you up, that’s even better.
  3. Never grow up. Being an adult is boring, so choose not to grow up. Eat candy for lunch, wear fireman pajamas, and watch The Breakfast Club two hundred and sixty-five times. Sure, people will make fun of you, but you’ll be the one enjoying life. Peter Pan for the win!
  4. You can talk your way out of anything. If your lips are moving, you’re good to go. It doesn’t really matter what you say, people will get so confused that they’ll let you off the hook.
  5. Everyone has a key phrase. It can be one word. Example: Whaaat? It can be a statement. Example: You know that’s right! It can even be a question. Example: So, you heard about Pluto? That’s messed up, right?
  6. You’ve always seen/heard it both ways. There’s more than one way to see things, so you always have a good reason that you messed up. Or did you?
  7. You are never wrong. No matter what outlandish or seemingly inane thing you say, you are always, always right. You may not be exactly on the dot, but you are close enough. It’s like playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon; there is always a connection somewhere.
  8. Everyone needs a secret handshake. It can be funny or it can be subtle. A fist bump works great. Don’t limp-wrist it, though. Better to avoid contact all together in that scenario.
  9. Your car is your baby, and you will protect it. These are the rules: No eating inside the vehicle. No eating near the vehicle. Seatbelts will be worn at all times. The driver never, ever answers the phone. Or texts. No one drives but the owner. If you don’t pay for the car than you don’t drive it. No dirt, blood, animals, or children allowed in the vehicle. No exceptions. If it is raining, you will sit on a towel. If an emergency occurs and you must drive the vehicle you will touch nothing but the door handle and ten and two on the steering wheel. Are we clear?
  10. Food is a distraction. It’s also yummy. And tastes good. And smells great. Cheese is good, as is chocolate. And pineapple. Did I mention pineapple? Smoothies. Jerk chicken. Tacos. Fries quatroqueso dos frito. What was I saying? Who cares, now I’m hungry…
