Random Thoughts

I received these observations via e-mail the other day... and can't take credit. But, I sure identify with most of 'em!

* Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you’re going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But, instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch, or phone, or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you’re crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

* How many times is it appropriate to say, “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear what they said?

* Every time I have to spell a word over the phone “as in” examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss’ last name to an attorney and said, “Yes, that’s G as in … (10 second lapse) … ummm … Goonies.”

* MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

* Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like, I know my name, I know where I’m from, this shouldn’t be a problem …

* I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my 10 page report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

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

* Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey. But I’d bet-cha everyone can find and push the “Snooze” button from 3 feet away , in about 1.6 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time.

* I wonder if policemen every get annoyed at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

* I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent one inconsiderate driver from cutting in at the front. Stay strong!!!

and finally …

* I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger!


  1. These are great and especially the mapquest one!

  2. Boy do a few of these hit home with me. I have to borrow this to send to a friend I know would also relate.
