A Weekend Challenge for You

I know that most of you have probably seen the list below but after the week I have had I needed a chuckle and I thought I would share it with you  You mission should you choose to accept it is to pick one of these 16 actions and complete it before the end of the weekend Then come back here and post how it went  Please humour me I have spent the last 6 days inside a 12x16 room watching my 23 month old breath  I need some distraction
Now to show you how easy this is I have just completed number 8
If I had a dime to my name I would totally do number 6
Ditto for number 14 so I might have to go to Stanley Park and do number 15 at the petting zoo or the aquarium

16 WAYS TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY LEVEL OF INSANITY


1. AT LUNCH, SIT IN YOUR PARKED CAR WITH SUNGLASSES ON
AND POINT A HAIRDRYER 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
"DO YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT?".

4. PUT YOUR GARBAGE CAN ON YOUR DESK AND LABEL IT "IN"

5. WHEN TRYING ON CLOTHES IN A DRESSING ROOM, YELL OUT
"THERE IS NO TOILET PAPER IN HERE"

6. IN THE MEMO FIELD OF ALL YOUR CHECKS, WRITE "FOR
SEXUAL FAVORS"

7. FINISH ALL YOUR SENTENCES WITH "IN ACCORDANCE WITH
THE PROPHECY"

8. DONT USE PUNCTUATION

9. AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE, SKIP RATHER THAN WALK.!

10. SPECIFY THAT YOUR DRIVE-THRU ORDER IS "TO GO"

11. SING ALONG AT THE OPERA

12. GO TO A POETRY RECITAL AND ASK WHY THE POEMS DON'T
RHYME

13. PUT MOSQUITO NETTING AROUND YOUR WORK AREA AND
PLAY TROPICAL SOUNDS ALL DAY.

14. WHEN THE MONEY COMES OUT THE ATM, SCREAM "I WON! I
WON!"

15. WHEN LEAVING THE ZOO, START RUNNING TOWARDS THE
PARKING LOT, YELLING "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES THEY'RE
LOOSE!"

16. TELL YOUR CHILDREN OVER DINNER, "DUE TO THE
ECONOMY, WE ARE GOING TO LET ONE OF YOU GO."

I have actually done no. 14. It was hilariously funny... or I thought it was....

I will review the list and see what I can attempt this weekend.

The Pleasant Peasant said...

I didn't do any of the 16, however, i have been answering the phone with:

"Hello, this is your conscience speaking".

Makes me laugh, but most people know its me or think I'm my mom.

Vic, that's so funny because #16 reminded me of YOU immediately. I can even picture the faces of your children.

Christian: wide eyed looking to Ave

Jonah: wheels turning...figuring out how to draw one of the long straws.

Avery: (rolls eyes) telling you that you've already tried to scare them with that one, and you need to be more original.

My coworker actually does #1 on our way out of Stanley Park daily, from the passenger seat of my car...particularly if the tourists deviate from the crosswalks.
