Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

edition #62

[click to play a short 'tribal beat' for ambiance!]

A new feature that may show up again, will be all in fun. I love humor, I love joking, I love laughter. Hope you will too. My thirteen this week comes from a wise ol' lady named Jefé [pronounced HEH fay in Spanish slang - meaning 'boss or chief', being in this case, a "chieftress" but I like Jefé - you guessed it, I really DO have chin whiskers'] These are thirteen tried and true living experiences from the aged one with her keen perception on life-------

1] Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.

2] You really should be scared that doctors call what they do "practice".

3] Trust me....your nose does run, and your feet do smell!

4] 22 is pronounced twenty-two, but 11 isn't pronounced onety-one!!!

5] A wise man and a wise guy are opposites!!

6] Barbie is not that popular...why else would we have to buy her friends and Ken?
[insert tribal talk now -"Oomgumbow-wow"]

7] Chairs are made the way they are 'cause our knees bend only one way!!

8] I've never been able to find a specialty shop for the plastic shoelace ends!!

9] "Fonetic" is not spelled the way it sounds!!

10] Throwing a cat out the car window does not make kitty litter!
[insert tribal talk now -"pittergumboogaloo"]

11] Speed of light, yes....but there is no speed of dark!

12] You're up the crick without a paddle on a one-way dead end!!

13] The reverse side also has a reverse side!!

BONUS: The alphabet is in that order because of the song!!!!

    I'm going to add you to my blogging buddy list - can't believe I haven't already done it!

  29. Anni,

    I got a good chuckle out of this posting and I sure needed it tonight. I am bushed. Had the boys all afternoon and took Brandon for his animal therapy. We had a talk with the psychologist there and he said he felt so much better after that. He was not as depressed today but had a migraine. He's going back to school tomorrow. We'll see how it goes.

    Take care and thanks again for the laugh.
