A Little Humor

To prove I'm still alive, I'm posting this. I give credit to my friend, Ramona, who sends me countless numbers of these things in the winter months but this particular one seems to fit my thinking at the moment as I wonder if my world and my brain are ever going to return to "normal," whatever that might be.

Subject: 23 Adult truths

1. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not
know what time it is.

2. Nothing is worse than that moment during an argument when you realize
you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure
I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the
person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind-of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work
when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the
rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't
want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if
I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I
did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to
answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or
Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Light than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and
smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to
prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,
and you can wear them forever.

22. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys
in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey -
but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away,
in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

23. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and
the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men
to realize that their brain is also important. Ladies.....Quit Laughing

This picture is Delilah as a puppy. I think the expression on her face suits my current mood. I promise a post about my condition is coming next. In the meantime, how many of these can you relate too?


  1. can relate to many of them. Loved this Glad to see you posting

  2. Number 23 was a hoot!!! Glad to see you on line again!!

  3. Very funny. I can relate to almost all of them. Love the last one.

    Good to see you're feeling a little better and posting. Hang in there.

  4. ROFLMAO!! Hilarious!! Thanks for the laugh!! I'm so glad you're still posting! ((HUGS!!))

  5. Nice list - I can really relate to #2 . . .

  6. Some of those quotes are bang on... Hope you are starting to feel better, Dave too.

  7. Funny! I love the one about getting to the point in the argument when you realize you're wrong! It hurts. Hope you're feeling well today!!

  8. How many can I relate to? Too many!

    Number 11 is pretty predictable. I would say many of us know as soon as we walk in the door! Unless you mean non-work related... Then a lot of 'productive' things are handled and taken care of. And yet somehow the world still goes around every day.

  9. Haha those are all soo true! What a cute pic of the puppy :)

  10. Great post, I can relate to a lot if not all of those.

    Delilah looks like she is getting some good sleep and will awake well rested. I hope that means that you are getting some rest and healing.

  11. All of them. Particularly that one about folding fitted sheets! Gosh that drives me nuts!!!

  12. Very funny MiKael! Glad to see that a little humour gets into your recovery!

  13. I'm laughing - but I was thinking yesterday that yes, cursive should still be taught! Otherwise we'll never be able to read anyone's writing - let along the Doctors!
