Truisms..... Just for fun!

[deleted account] ( 24 moms have responded )

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

2. Nothing sucks more 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. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest/ Garmin really needs to start their directions at stage 5 - I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighbourhood.

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

9. Bad decisions make good stories.

10. 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.

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

12. 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.

13. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.

14. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail.

What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

15. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

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

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

18. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

19. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to the car to bring my groceries in.

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

21. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
22. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent an A-hole from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

23. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

24. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far..

25. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

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

27. 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 my ass everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

sooo funny!!!!! lmao. and oh so true. but dana..... i know the secret to folding a fitted sheet perfectly :P lol. i used to work in a manchester store.... fold the sheet in half, stick the corners into each other. then in half again and put the corners all in together. then just fold to the shape you want because you have a perfect square to work with. hope that made sense. :)

@ Dana... " No hunny, I love them! I'm just frustrated! "......

" Cats
Women love cats.

Men may say they love cats, but when women are not looking, men will kick cats."

Bahaha! Chad always used to mutter under his breath that he was gonna kick my cat! I used to get so upset and ask him if he wanted to get rid of them but he said, " No hunny, I love them! I'm just frustrated! "......I gave him a way out but he couldn't just be honest!? LOL!

A woman knows all about her children. She knows about their best friends, romances, secret hopes and dreams, favorite foods, fears and dental appointments.

A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

That is classic!!!

Differences Between Man and Women

If Mary, Susan, Claire and Barbara go out for lunch, they will call each other Mary, Susan, Claire and Barbara.

If John, Brad, Tony and Daniel go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Bruno, Scrappy, Peanut-Head and Godzilla.

Eating Out
When the bill arrives, John, Brad, Tony and Daniel will each throw in $20, even though the total is only $34.25. None of them will have any smaller bills and none will admit they want change back.

When Mary, Susan, Claire and Barbara get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

A man will pay $10 for a $5 item he needs.

A woman will pay $5 for a $10 item that she doesn't need, because it's on sale.

A man has five items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, razor, shaving cream, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Motel 6.

The average number of items in a woman's bathroom is 328. The average man would not be able to identify most of them.

Women always have the last word in an argument. Anything a man adds after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Women love cats.

Men may say they love cats, but when women are not looking, men will kick cats.

A woman worries about the future -- until she gets a husband.

A man never worries about the future -- until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than can be spent by his wife.

A successful woman is one who can find that a man.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.

Dressing Up
A woman will dress up when she goes shopping, empties the garbage, answers the phone, waters the plants, gets the mail and reads a book.

A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

Men wake up looking as good as when they went to bed.

Women will somehow deteriorate during the night.

A woman knows all about her children. She knows about their best friends, romances, secret hopes and dreams, favorite foods, fears and dental appointments.

A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death. What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch and you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities. You become a little baby, you go back into the womb, spend your last nine months floating... and you finish off as an orgasm.

2. I'm in shape. Round is a shape.
3. Do illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup?
4. I've always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more specific.
5. Ever notice that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, but anyone going faster is a maniac?
6. I have six locks on my door, all in a row. When I go out, I lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three of them.
7. One out of every three Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of two of your best friends. If they are OK, then it must be you.
8. They show you how detergents take out bloodstains. I think if you've got a T-shirt with bloodstains all over it, maybe your laundry isn't your biggest problem.
9. Ask people why they have deer heads on their walls and they tell you it's because they're such beautiful animals. I think my wife is beautiful, but I only have photographs of her on the wall.

Wine = Health
Friday, March 21, 2008 at 1:28am | Edit Note | Delete
As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) - bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service.

Amie - posted on 05/18/2010




LMAO! This reminds me of a note I wrote on FB last year. I'll copy and paste it to here. It's about my experiences with my kids.

Things I've learned as a mom
Thursday, February 12, 2009 at 4:32pm

1) Kids are a lot smarter than people give them credit for.

2) Kids are very resilient, it takes a lot to hurt them and even then a kiss will make it alright, most of the time.

3) There is nothing funnier than watching a toddler give you sass.

4) When their older it's not so cute anymore.

5) Boys are a lot harder to deal with when small than girls are.

6) As girls get older then they become very difficult though.

7) My kids have stashes all over the house, these range from their favorite snacks to money to toys I thought long gone. Even with endless searching Ryan and I have not been able to find where these stashes are.

8) It's a good idea to have the number of a good carpet cleaner.

9) Being independent is all well and good but when they start it at 18 months it's just aggravating.

10) Kids can and will ask the hard questions, usually to the person most unwilling to answer them. haha.

11) You're not always entirely sure what kids will say or where it comes from so be prepared for the most embarrassing.

12) Kids are the best at being sneaky.

13) Kids are also very light footed when they want to be. They'll stomp around like elephants all day but night time comes and watch out. Lock your bedroom door if you have a lock on it!

14) My kids have an aversion to clothing, even if you get them dressed the clothes are gone within a few minutes, sometimes never to be seen again..... refer back to #7 and their stashes.

15) Cats are tolerant creatures, even when being held in a choke hold.

16) Child proof does not mean child proof, only an idiot will assume this true.

17) The fact that I have not had a heart attack yet, I think, proves I'm healthy.

18) Kids will put almost anything into their mouths to find out if it's edible instead of asking.

19) Even in the midst of a room full of toys they will all want to play with the same one at the same time.

20) Kids can and will most likely get their heads stuck in the weirdest places only for you to wonder how the hell they got it in there in the first place.

21) Your grocery bill will double, even if you only have one kid. For each one there after it goes up by another quarter.

22) If they are quiet, trouble is brewing.

23) If they are quiet but then screaming bloody murder more than likely a doctor will be needed.

24) It does not matter how late you keep them awake there they will always be there at the crack of dawn poking you going, Mom, mom, mom, moooooooooooooooooom.

25) Pretending to be asleep still only makes them talk louder, eventually shaking you and yelling right in your ear. If it is 8 in the morning consider yourself lucky to have slept in.

26) Beadwork toys/crafts are NEVER a good idea for a child to have. Getting one of the beads removed from an ear is not any fun for the kid or to watch

27) Try as hard as you might, your house will not remain spotless for more than an hour. Toys being stepped on are a daily occurrence.

28) Putting the toaster on the highest setting will not only turn the toast blacker than black but fill the house with smoke. Toaster still works though!

29) Your kids will ignore you until the phone rings, then all of them at once will have a million and one questions to ask.

30) Food always tastes better from your plate than their own. Doesn't matter if it's the exact same thing and they watch you make it, it is always better off mom or dad's plate.
