Q A 90 year old man's dying wish in South Carolina was to be buried in his car. If you were told tomorrow you have 3 weeks to live, would you have any dying wishes or something special done before you died?

A. At one time I even said I wanted to be buried in MY CAR! But that was long ago when I was stupid and young. Golly, was it EVER a long time least two or three years it's been since I was young. Something special huh?----my dying wish would be to die without pain. Not suffer those 3 weeks.

Q. Do you pay for more stuff using a credit/debit card or cold hard cash?

A. I hate to say this, but I don't do credit...and I don't do cold hard cash either. Make sense of it? You see, I only carry one card...that's debit. "Don't leave home without it". If the establishment doesn't accept it...they don't get any of my business. It's that simple.

Q. What's cuter- a baby lizard or a baby snake?

A. That's like asking me if I like the taste of phlegm better than snot!!! I do not like snakes baby or grown, I do not like them, this is known. I won't like them in this lifetime, I don't even like them in this rhyme. And I do not like any snake jam, I do not like 'em Jake I am!!! Now, baby lizards...that depends. The small gecko like lizards [even the green slimy ones in our yard] are tolerable...but they ARE reptiles. So...there you have it. My answer: I'd rather taste a booger.

Q. You go out to eat by yourself at a restaurant. While waiting for your food do you people watch & easedrop [you mean eavesdrop, right?] on others conversations, read a book, use a laptop or chat with people around you?

A. More than likely, if I'm alone, I'll order it 'to go'....but if I happen to sit down to order and stay for the meal...I'd ask for a window seat and watch outdoors through the window and let the world pass me by...or read. Easedrop or Eavesdrop....I'm not into the gossipy lifestyle.

Q. If you see someone walking around with toilet paper stuck to their shoe, do you tell them or just laugh?

A. Oh looks to me like someone squeezed the charmin too much here. I'd laugh and go on my merry way. Let someone else do the 'dirty work' and tell 'em.

Q. You are talking to someone you just met but you can't understand them at all because of their accent. Do you tell them you can't understand them or just smile and nod?

A. For me, accents are great. Y'all know that by now, don'tcha huny chi'l?!! Languages would have been my 2nd major if I didn't drop out of college to marry....So, I would smile and nod prol'ly 'cause it would be a challenge to myself to get their meaning through it all. And I can read lips also. So, that helps!!

Q. Mudfest! Park filled with pools of mud and an obstacle course of mud. Do you go and play in the mud?

A. DAM straight I would....I don't wanna grow up. I'd even start a mud fight to be sure. I'd make a great politician these days...I'd be in there with the mudslinging at a high velocity. Look out in Chen*y!!!!!

Q. Have you ever had a headache so bad it effected your vision?

A. No, but I've had visions that would cause anyone a headache.

Q. Would you fit in more with the circus, Hollywood, Broadway, or comedy circuit types?

A. C*medy Centr*l, here I come. My first act would be entitled: "You been here 4 OWah!!" See if I can fit that all see, I'm eating alone at a restaurant ---all you can eat of course, and ran out of napkins so I'm using the toilet paper I found stuck on my shoe when I tried to stomp on the baby lizard on the tile floor..only to talk to the people next to me that happen to be of the Asian persuasion; with an accent..and they keep shaking there heads in disbelief when I go back for more....yep, I've been there four HOURS!! And pay after a long time....with my DEBIT!! I have vision and the rest of the world wears bifocals!! No wonder so many suffer from headaches knowing me.


13 plays on words:

Seriously, these thirteen just may tie into the "thunks" 'cause you really have to think --you need to use your ol' 'thunker' on these!! Oh, gimme a break...I'm on a roll!! Just, read on.....

  1. A dog not only has a fur coat but also pants.

  2. A bicycle can't stand alone because it is two-tired.

  3. The definition of a will is: It's a dead giveaway.

  4. A backward poet writes inverse.

  5. With her marriage she got a new name and a dress.

  6. The man who fell into an upholstery machine was fully recovered.

  7. He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

  8. Those who jump off a Paris bridge are in Seine.

  9. When an actress saw her first strands of gray hair, she thought she' d dye.

  10. I work as a baker because I knead dough.

  11. Santa's helpers are subordinate clauses.

  12. Marathon runners with bad footwear suffer the agony of defeat.

  13. And the last one ---

  14. In a word, there is more to a woman than a man.

  15. Hey Anni-
    What happened to Thursday 13 anyway?

    Buried in your car would have been interesting.

  16. I don't do credit either... its debit or cash, but usually debit as I never have more than a few bucks on me at any given time.

  17. oh i forgot that...i also dont wanna suffer before i die ;)

  18. I wonder how toilet paper arrived in the shoe ?? my father had it once hanging out of his fly, but I didn't tell him, it was too funny especially because he had such a snobbish look (hehehe)

    Nice 13ers, to jump in the Seine is in seine is good, lol !

  19. You sure do know how to make a person laugh. I would bet you would do good on Comedy Central.
    I use debit also.
    I also wanted to be buried in my Purple Car, but I know that would take up to much of the yard.LOL
    I just don't want to suffer with pain those last few weeks.
    Great play on words.

    Thanks for visiting today's post on Madison!


  37. a very neat T13 list! I didn't really check how is Seine pronounced. Now I think I know :)

  38. Hazel Most people say "sane" but in all actuality, the French pronounce is Sen...very nasal.
