Another List Didactic For Children of All Ages

Rotate your tires and planets frequently
Turn your soil into something pretty dirty
Make your garden grow in soiled earth
Stay out of the sun (the surface there is hot enough)
Remember first things first are better the second time around
Set your alarm to stun
Wake up early when you want to steal the dawn
Stop doing that it hurts
Emphasize your words when talking in your sleep
Repeat them to your spouse when you awake
See what happens next
Never ever drive without a car (a vehicle will do)
Ride a roller coaster if you must
Take a bag lunch, you will need it later
Walk on tidal forces into tomorrow
Take medication if you really want to feel the pain
Read every label that comes your way
Don't talk to strangers who count your sheep
Keep your own company in a mirror 
Wash it, kiss it, cover it in blankets once a week
Turn off the light to see why things glow in the dark
Work at being a kinder gentler nation
Leave affection to the professionals
Pay attention if you are listening 
Forget the beginning about rotating things
Let them spin to reach their own conclusions 
Just finish when you stop reading this
