The following was forwarded to me in an email the other day from my childhood friend and fellow blogger Doojies. I forwarded it to most on my email list but to catch the rest of you, I'm putting it on here. While I'm certainly not the author of this list, I could've been. In fact, I'm going to add a few of my own ponders to the end.

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your
computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more 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 MSWord and it asks me
if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I
did not make any changes to.

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this -

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?), but
when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail.
What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing
anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

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

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

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

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

21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what the hell was going on when I first saw

22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to
finish a text.

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

25. 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?

26. 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

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

28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

29. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are
going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

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

31. 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.

And now a few of my own.....

  • Why is it that people with college degrees can't remember that EVERY Monday and Thursday are garbage days?

  • The sink will fill up to the brim with dirty dishes and still no one will unload the clean dishes in the dishwasher.

  • The last laundry will stay in the dryer for days and get reheated several times to get those set-in wrinkles out.

  • There is always one thing we are out of when it's time to cook dinner.

  • The day I go to the grocery store with no makeup and a baseball hat, is the day I run into everyone I know.

  • Why is it that weekends go by with nothing to do, then 3 invitations collide on the same day?

How about you? Got any more to add?


  1. It doesn't matter how much I buy at the grocery store, I invariably start a new list within 1 hour of being home.

  2. I love this!!

  3. Enjoyed this a lot :)

    Even if I lay my clothes out at night, pack a lunch, throw a bag of my work things together, and set it all by the door ready to go, it will still take me three tries before I can get to my car without having to turn around for something I forgot.

  4. Our smart-butt attitudes totally connected with this. Love your adds, no kidding, how many Aggies does it take...?
