|Shanna's Pearls of Wisdom|
|Below is a list of sayings that my wife, Shanna, has claimed over the years. I really don't know where she gets this stuff.|
|- If a mother dresses up too much while pregnant then the baby will be born ugly.

- Your feet are bigger in the morning.
- If you sneeze, it means that somebody somewhere is talking about you.

- Don't take a shower when you are sick. It will make you feel worse.
- If your eyes are puffy, it means you saw dogs making love.
- If you have cold hands it means you are a cold (mean) person.
- If your pinky is much shorter than your ring finger, then it is very easy for your friends to control you.
- If your belly button is an outy, you will be poor because you can't store any money in your belly button.
- Putting a butterfly in you belly button can help you to learn to swim.
- When the wind blows in your belly button it can make you sick. When this happens, applying medicine oil to your belly button is the only cure.
- God gave a woman beauty so she could punish men.
- It is ok for a woman to steal from a man, but not the other way around. (Its only ok if the woman does not work).

- If your fart makes big noise, then it will not smell much.
- If you have flecks under your finger nails it means you have just washed rice.
- If a baby sleeps with his butt up in the air, it means he wants another sibling.
- If you play with your food you will become poor later.
- If you tummy is flicked, then you will get a stomach ache.
- If you sleep a lot, then you will grow faster.
- If you move your legs too much (nervously), then you will be unlucky and you will drop your money.
- If you lie in the same position too much when you are a baby you will have a flat head (This happened to Shanna she says).

- If you get surprised while you are making an ugly face, it will stay that way.
- If you try too hard while making a bowel movement, you could hemhorage and have your insides come out. If this happens, the only way to fix it is to roll a warm hard-boiled egg around your anus until whatever came out goes back inside.

- If a pregnant woman likes to eat sour things, then she will have a boy. If she likes to eat sweet things during her pregnancy, then she will have a girl.
- If sick do not go outside in the rain, or take a shower.
