Fun Friday




I am so lucky to have everything!


On the Other Side of 50 - this is so funny!


















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


2. Nothings worse 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. How in the world do you fold a fitted sheet?


5. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
 

6. 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.

7. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.


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


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


10. 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.






CahootsI have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots.
Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.
I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
I may have been in Continent, and I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing and can be very embarassing!
You can also be infatuated.  With this extra weight I've put on, I think I'm already there!





Thanks Carol.

Thanks for a great start to a Friday when I arrived at work tired (certainly not a good way to begin the day!) Your post gave me the laugh I needed!

Sandra said...

I WANT that desk in the first cartoon, i NEED that desk... then i could get some work done

Cheri said...

Well that song pretty much sums up my life. lol

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

#'s 4 and 6 made me smile...I always make a botch of folding fitted sheets and yes, there were many days at work when I knew nothing else was going to be done. Those days still happen now that I'm retired too. Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

Another cheerful Friday post.

Cranberry Morning said...

I laughed aloud when I read #5, cuz I've thought of that so often!!!

Thanks for the laughs, Sandie. :-) Hope you have a good weekend.

Wow great post! I can relate to #4...always wonder how to fold them lol!Luckily I don't have any of these anymore, prefer the plain straight ones that you can fold nicely.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Too many things to relate to. I am old, but a part of me will always be that 16 year old girl. She is just buried under one of my saggy parts, but comes out every now and then.

TexWisGirl said...

i LOVE the list of 10!

Shelly said...

Just what the soul needs- laughter and wisdom. I saw myself in many of them!

Shug said...

Love this Friday post. Sitting in the drs. Office with my hubby and I am cracking up laughing. People think I'm crazy! Ha!

Wanda's Wings said...

Love it!

Pondside said...

Thanks for all that! My husband was hanging over my shoulder as I played the song - what a hoot!

Grammy Goodwill said...

Love the song - thanks. Have a great weekend.

Renae said...

I have been laughing hysterically for the past five minutes, with tears streaming down my face while those around me keep muttering, "What's so funny?"

My gosh! Lady, that was too funny today, too funny!!!! (esp. loved only being driven to Insane, you can't fly there...)

Grandma Bonnie said...

Happy Friday to you! I am so thankful I am on the green side of the grass. Have a great weekend!

Tammy @ The Northern Nest said...

Got a good giggle at myself from all you posted today.

I am over 50 but I don't get up with the rooster...I've got a little magnet with a rooster that says "I didn't get up late~I got an early start on tomorrow!"

Jim said...

A very nice Friday post. The video is pretty true.
I could help with some of your problem list as I've been there and fixed the situations.
..

Beth said...

A great Friday post. I think do get up with the rooster as I am up by 6 most mornings.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Too funny! You've provided such a wonderful way to start off the weekend! As the youngsters would say, "you rock!"

DaCraftyLady said...

I loved the greener video...great way to start off my day... ~~Debb

Debbie said...

One of the funniest fun Fridays of all! I can't wait to read this to my husband when he gets home. I can relate to just about every comment on here.

But now, that man can fold a fitted sheet. Don't ask me how he does it so well. I think his lanky old ape arms have something to do with it.

Debbie said...

BTW, have I ever told you how much I enjoy opening up this blog?
Never fails. I always love it.

Dolores said...

Your wonderful, beautiful and happy blog always lifts my spirits and makes me smile..... thank you!

Miss Debbie said...

"You got mail"...that's funny! :-)

Ginny said...

#7 totally!!!

Debbie said...

ooohhhh today's list was good, i LOVED #2!!!

Lynn said...

That guy shooting the computer - I've felt like that so many times. :)

Funny. Happy weekend, Sandie!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

That one cartoon reminds me of the father in Texas that shot his daughter's laptop. It was on the news a few months ago. Now I've been tempted to throw my computer, but have always controlled myself.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

GREAT list! I do the same thing with my watch! And my phone and the computer clock. LOL!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I'm still ignoring blue ray. Why bother when my dvds work so well?!

chrislie said...

Hi Chatty, your blog really touches me, have been reading it for a while... Just wanted you to know about a website i started ReadYourBiblesChurch.com... It's a place for Bible study guides.. I also put a forum in that can be viewed from a mobile device.. I couldn't find where to contact you privately so I'm commenting, hope that is okay. :) God Bless! Jenn.

Karen Lange said...

I found myself nodding, smiling, and/or laughing through this post. Thanks, Sandie! Have a great weekend! :)

Blessings,
Karen

SquirrelQueen said...

I love all my colorful days but once in awhile the colors bleed into one another.

That video is a hoot and so are the cartoons. Thanks for all the laughs!

Crystal Mary said...

Like that Youtube...its so try and makes one laugh at the truth of it. LOL Thanks mate. Much love and hugs sen to you. xxxx

Ann said...

I really liked all of these but that last one I LOVED

That corgi :) said...

I'm so with you about #3 with naps; I said this before, but I don't know why little ones resist them so. I'd love for someone to say "nap time".

have a great weekend, Sandie!

betty

Mevely317 said...

Isn't it funny how many of can identify with one or more items on THAT list?!?
After too many years of trying -- and failing -- to fold a fitted sheet, I decided to have one set of linens per bed. As soon as the dryer finishes, it's right back on the bed.... no muss, no fuss .. and best of all, no folding!
Have a beautiful evening!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Cracked up when I saw the keys in the fridgie. I think I've done that. ha ha hahahha Hope your weekend is terrific. Susan

The Brown Recluse said...

I have to really giggle at number 2. Even when I realize it, I probably won't admit it!! And number 6? I have a co worker who reaches that moment everyday when she arrives!!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Happy Friday!

Nancy Claeys said...

Once again most of the seats are taken in this comment section but I have to add my two cents. Thanks Sandie for a delightful Friday (even for my Saturday).

Hahahahah!!! I had a great time chuckling to these :)

Just had to chuckle over the MapQuest comment. Recently had some experience with it myself.
