    I Am Amused At The Odd Things My Brain Flips Out About~

    I took a long walk the other day, and during that walk came up with a partial list of things that I find disturbing.  Oh boy, here we go:  War, broken relationships, Barney, disease, Captain Kangaroo and Mr.Rogers' child molestation rap sheets, taco bell mystery beef product...

    Shopping Cart Rage

    Shopping cart rage. Anyone who spends any amount of time in the supermarket is familiar with this type of stress. It develops right after the road rage and the parking lot rage, and just before the check out line rage. Well, perhaps rage is too strong a word. It isn’t  full...

    Humour is a fantastic way to disarm people

    and situations. And growing up I found it a great defence against all those who attempted to bully me. These days I just consider myself 80% human&20% idiot!!

    Yes I Can :-)

    So when the therapist asked me why it was important that I am slim enough to be able to drop my drawers over my hips WITH my belt buckled (added two holes to make it smaller) I pondered and did eventually have a rebuttal :-) I advised her that although I'm an honest I do recall...

    I forgot my pin while I was trying to finish my

    transaction at the check out. I typed it in wrong twice. It was a bit embarrassing, especially since the cashier was a bit on the cute side... But it's all good, he was really nice about it. I told my mom about it and we laughed together...

    If you can't laugh at mishaps, you're taking life too seriously.

    "There is no point in taking life too seriously.

    You'll never make it out alive." I never developed the ability to laugh at myself until I developed more confidence in myself. When you have confidence in yourself, you don't give a rip what other people think. I can't count how many times I have been working and squatted down...

    I had one eye done for close and one eye done for far. My friend and I were driving down the highway. I saw a dead deer on the side of the road. I asked, "What is it? a buck or a doe". They replied, "It's a chair". I cracked up laughing. Guess the surgery didn't go so well...

    A rather successful outing today, decent parking, a working cart and plenty of room to move around, and it’s a good thing, as I had a lot to contend with over there this afternoon. Of course it helps enormously that I was in a great mood and I was not in a rush.   The first...
