As part of a TBT, I thought I would share some words of wisdom that I found among my father’s newspapers—the first would be considered household hints, while the second is timely marital advice from a flash from the past/present.
I checked out the book mentioned in the article—Never Throw Out a Banana Again. I learned, in the brief description, that a banana’s nutrition increases as it ripens, so they can be frozen and then used in smoothies or banana ice cream. I never recall having either of these, so I guess neither of my parents read this handy-dandy helpful hint. Somehow, the second hint about throwing in a sponge to “absorb spoilage-promoting moisture” has a bit of familiarity to it, so I will have to ask my mother about that hint.
The second little article was written by none-other than Ivana Trump and includes a piece of advice from her 1995 book The Best is Yet to Come: Coping with Divorce and Enjoying Life Again.
According to the first former Mrs. Trump, “The only time you don’t need a prenuptial is if he’s got a bad cough and a walker.”
Hmm! Very interesting.
