Amber Alvarez’ Rules of Caution

Things I have learned, so you don’t have to:

ROC#1: Don’t kiss library books. It isn’t sanitary.ROC#2: If you’re going to wear pantyhose you’re really going to have to shave.
ROC#3: If your date asks if you want some Coke, don’t assume he’s talking Cola. ROC#4: There are certain inappropriate things you shouldn’t discuss with coworkers.You know the drill: No one’s going to appreciate DUNE the way you appreciat DUNE.

ROC#5: If somebody asks you for a favor,
find out what it is before you say ‘sure’.
ROC#6: Trix are for kids. I used to think those commercials were so mean! In the second grade I felt worse for the Trix rabbit than I did for my spelling tutor (pour kid) –I crack me up. Now I realize those commercials were a public service announcement for the over 19 set.

ROC#7: If you’re a fish and he’s a bird… best to swim away now, little fish, before someone gets hurt.**

**Exception: You’re a girl and he’s a vampire
If that’s the case,
throw all caution to the wind.

(please revisit ROC#1)

  2. LOL! I really appreciated your pearls of wisdom. I wished I'd read this before confessing my love of the Jonas Brothers to my co-workers…on a conference call. Yikes! Love the drawings.

About last night. 🦌💛 Crawling home on all fours after celebrating at the epic Puppy Par-tay my brother and sister-in-law put on for my dog nephew, Milo tonight. It was everything and more, complete with a bone-shaped swimming pool. #dreamtheimpawssibledream 🤘#livewithnoregrets We otter go exploring more rivers. 😍
#lifeachievementunlocked A Mama said there’d be days like this😍
Totally alone in the Natural History Museum’s Hall of Mammals for hours! Hashtag Blessed. It’s 1 AM. Do you know where your mini gummi bears are? 
#fairgame #latenightinthestudio #goodbyeoctober We’re celebrating today. I opened my eyes to Matt  crowing, “Amber! Wake up. They made it!” We have been following the inspiring pilgrimage of my mom @incredimombo & sister @prilliegirl_shakazoozoo via text & @instagram for weeks. They set out to trek across Spain a month and a half ago. This morning they walked their 500th mile and crossed into Santiago. Having read a lot about their journey before they set out to do it, I felt concerned at their determination. The Camino is not easy. It requires walking 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week. You have to carry everything you need on your back. The toll is physical, mental & spiritual. Many prepared and experienced hikers do not make it to the end of the journey the first or second time they attempt it. ☀️ So we’re dreaming impossible dreams and celebrating too. It would seem today is a good day to set out to do the impossible. When we moved to Utah I was sure I’d been too spoiled by my childhood on the ocean and my twenties in Brooklyn, to ever find anything to love in the desert. I fully planned on dying of boredom. I don’t know what I’ll do when we outgrow this little Wasatch apartment of ours! Watching the Sun kiss the mountains goodnight from our tiny balcony is beyond description. This picture doesn’t begin to do it justice. Home again.
