A List Maker's Life: Things To Ponder

Things To Ponder

A friend of mine sent me a funny list via email. I could resist sharing it here. With 19 days until Christmas, here are 19 insignificant things to ponder.

~Part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
~Nothing is worse than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
~I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (I'm afraid my mom would say I never passed up a nap when I was younger)
~There is great need for a sarcasm font. (Then maybe I wouldn't constantly feel like I have to clarify his Facebook status updates)
~How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
~Was learning cursive really necessary?
~Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
~Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
~I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
~Bad decisions typically make entertaining stories.
~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.
~Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection. Again. (Truth be told we are still stuck in DVD land)
~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 research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
~"Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this-- ever. (Or I will and it will never look the same--ever)
~I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Stink!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
~I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste. (And wearing sweats to the grocery store is a magnet for seeing everyone I know)
~I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call. (Like, embarrassingly, the Hope College donation phone bank number. Maybe when I pay off my student loans I will start giving to enhance someone else's education)
~My 5-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How in the world do I respond to that? (I don't even know what a ninja is???)
~I think the freezer deserves a light as well. (Perhaps we'd finally eat those treasures that have been hidden in the back for years...maybe?!)

Random silliness.
