What the rhubarb said

Love is like a pineapple; it eats you back.
Never overfill your rucksack.
You are prone to both accidents and wanderings.
Lucky number? Always 5.
Avoid calling back home on Thursdays.
Exfoliate. Season everything with lemons.
Have a river picnic; bake pies.
Do not seek the truth, do not seek the lies.
