Is there a healthy dose of insanity?

I got on email this morning and a friend sent me this little list. I laughed and laughed. Little did I know how much I would need a laugh today. Having been sick and just returning from vacation, the only thing left in our fridge this morning were condiments and garlic. Along with a trip to the store, I had many other errands on my "To Do" list. Then I hopped into the car and when I turned the key I did not hear the roar of a healthy engine, but the click click click of a dead battery. It wouldn't even start with a jump. So I borrowed a friend's car, added "get battery charged or new battery" to my already huge list, and was off. I didn't even have time for lunch today, not to mention uploading pictures from my trip to share with y'all. This list was the best part of my day to this point, so I had to share. Enjoy!

Ways to Maintain A Healthy Level of Insanity.

1. At Lunch Time, Sit In Your Parked Car With Sunglasses on and point a Hair Dryer At Passing Cars. See If They Slow Down.

2. Page Yourself Over The Intercom. Don't Disguise Your Voice.

3. Every Time Someone Asks You To Do Something, Ask If They Want Fries with that.

4. Put Your Garbage Can On Your Desk And Label It "In."

5. Put Decaf In The Coffee Maker For 3 Weeks Once Everyone has Gotten Over Their Caffeine Addictions, Switch to Espresso.

6. In The Memo Field Of All Your Checks, Write " For Smuggling Diamonds"

7. Finish All Your sentences with "In Accordance With The Prophecy."

8 Don't use any punctuation

9. As Often As Possible, Skip Rather Than Walk.

10. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

11. Specify That Your Drive-through Order Is "To Go."

12. Sing Along At The Opera.

13. Go To A Poetry Recital And Ask Why The Poems Don't Rhyme?

14. Put Mosquito Netting Around Your Work Area And Play tropical Sounds All Day.

15. Five Days In Advance, Tell Your Friends You Can't Attend Their Party Because You're Not In The Mood.

16. Have Your Co-workers Address You By Your Wrestling Name, Rock Bottom.

17. When The Money Comes Out The ATM, Scream "I Won!, I Won!"

18. When Leaving The Zoo, Start Running Towards The Parking lot, Yelling
"Run For Your Lives, They're Loose!!"

19. Tell Your Children Over Dinner. "Due To The Economy, We Are Going To Have To Let One Of You Go."

Yeah Jaime - I'm so glad you started a blog. It really is a great way to keep in touch. It looks great and I will enjoy checking it. Glad your finally getting better - It's been a miserable year for sickness...I am now trying to recover from another sinis infection...aghh!

Oh and I loved "healthy dose of insanity". I had a good laugh imagining how people would react if I actually did a few of these!

Jaime it was great seeing your family. I can't believe how grown up all your kids are. Time really goes too fast. Wasn't it just a few months ago we were in the hospital having Brennon and McKenna?
