What are your life rules?

Posted: Updated:

By Sonseeahray Tonsall, FOX News

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A California man is trying to find the child author of a 'rule book.' One of the rules in it -- don't bite the dentist!
       
The rules sound like the kind of advice you might snatch up in the self-help section at Barnes and Noble. The life lessons came to Walmart employee Raymond Flores at work as he scanned  a Citrus Heights lot for empty carts.

"There wasn't really much out there. And I saw this book sitting in a parking spot so I thought I'd pick it up and check it out," said Flores.

After flipping through the pages, Flores quickly realized he'd found something too special to be tossed.

"Rule number 154 was to protect this book," Flores said.

Following the lead of the author and one of his idols, he wants to find the rightful owner.

"They put a lot of hard work into it. These rules mean a lot to them and probably to the parents as well," said Flores.

While it appears the more trained hand of a parent wrote down several of the rules in the book, page turning reveals words and wisdom penned by a little person – a few of the words are misspelled.

"One of them is go to bed early if you have dance in the morning. Applies to more than just dance. If you have work, school, anything important, just prioritize," said Flores.

Flores says his favorite rule is "put your shoes by the front door when you take them off."

The other reason he's so interested in getting the book back to its author is that rule 158 was in progress when the book was lost. Flores didn't want to say exactly what day the book was found.

If you think you know who is the book's author, contact FOX 40 in Sacramento.
