Today's prompt is "A Lesson Learned the Hard Way" Really? Is there an easy way? I mean, I guess I learned a lot of lessons by watching others get into trouble...
Okay, yeah. I learned the hard way not to follow my middle sister into all of her shenanigans. One time, I followed her into our eldest sister's room, on her word that she'd left something there, and we both got spanked for breaking Big Sis' privacy. OOPS!
I'm kind of at a loss here. I'm one of those people who has to re-learn life lessons multiple times. If I wasn't taught in school, it takes me a while. Just today, I learned the hard way that BOILING WATER IS HOT! ...as I poured straight from the kettle onto my hand.
So yeah, kind of everything under the sun is learned the hard way unless I was taught in school, or personally observed someone else (a sibling) get into trouble for it.
