    Stole this from a friend. Had to delete #24 because it wasn't family friendly. Too bad too, because it was the best one. [​IMG]


    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 younger.

    4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

    5. How the heck 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 Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

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

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

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

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

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

    19. 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?

    20. 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 sisters!

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

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

    23. 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.

    Great Post! [​IMG]

    However #6 can be pretty important! I had to take a state pre-service teaching exam this summer and just to be allowed into the testing center I had to copy a large paragraph in cursive writing. The monitor for the room complemented me on how legible and quickly I was able to write in cursive for someone so young. Being right on the cusp of the technological boom most of my classmates completely forgot the skill.

    6. ...cursive is useful; I can write notes that my children's generation can not read to save their lives.

    Does it mean that I'm "older" if I think the list is funny? [​IMG]

    I think that I am only going to decide that I am too old when I stop finding things to smile about. [​IMG]

    My sister and I have a pact that should one of us die unexpectedly, the other will immediately go to her house and clean it up (and perhaps hide any incriminating items).
