Life from the lighter side...

1. I think part of a best friend's responsibility should be to immediately come to your house and clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize that you are so totally wrong.

3. All those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger was a big mistake.

4. There is much need for a "sarcasm" font.

5. I am 55 and still have not figured out how to fold a fitted sheet.

6. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least some kind of tired.

7. Bad decisions often make our best and funniest stories.

8. You never know when it'll strike, but there comes a moment at work when you come to the realization that you're just not going to do one more productive thing for the rest of the day.

9. Can we just ignore whatever comes after Blu-ray? I don't want to restart my video collection yet again..... Beta, VHS, DVD, Blu-ray, and...

10. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my thirty page chapter that I swear I did not make any changes to.

11. Am I the only person who keeps certain numbers in their cell phone just so I know who not to answer when they call?

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

13. I totally disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Alcohol than with "K".

14. I have a hard time determining where boredom ends and hunger begins.

15. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't understand a word being said?

16. Shirts get dirty. socks get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, you can wear pants forever.

17. There are times when I will look down at my watch 3 or 4 times and still not know what time it is.

18. Even under ideal conditions I have trouble locating my car keys in my pocket, finding my cell phone, or even something as big as my van - but I can hit the snooze button from 3 feet away, coming out of a dead sleep with eyes closed, doing it in about 2 seconds nailing it the first time, every time.

19. The first testicular guard, the "Cup", was used in Hockey in 1874. The first helmet was used in 1974. So this means it took men only 100 years to realize that their brain was important too. Who says we (men) are slow?

As Kenny says, in Britain one wears pants under shorts.

I really relate to 11, no you're not, I've even given them their own special photo in my contacts so that is shows on my cellphone screen

Hi Scott

Great post. You brought a smile to my face because I live so many of these every day. I'm 64 and as Jim said... "More to come."

Keep on keeping on. Love you blog.

I haven't tried it yet, but here's the fitted sheets solution:

Maybe? I hope. I make a mess of it everytime. They're not folded, so much as they are crumpled up and throw on the top shelf in the closet.
