TT #10


13 Ways To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity

1. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
2. Order a diet water whenever you go out to eat with a serious face.
3. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
4. When your money comes out of an ATM machine scream, "I won! I won!"
5. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot yelling, "Run for your lives, they're loose!!"
6. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
7. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "in."
8. Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."
9. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.
10. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.
11. Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy."
12. Don't use any punctuation
13. Tell your children over dinner, "Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go." !

I love envisioning the scenarios that each of these entail. Would the waiter even catch the diet water request? How would the mosquito netting look? What would the co-workers do?

Such rich details -- perfect for fiction!

Thanks for stopping by West of Mars. I really needed the inspiration today.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

Elle Fredrix said...

These are hysterical. And I'd love to pull that coffee one too. Of course, have you seen what happens to people when they're in caffeine withdrawal? I have. It ain't pretty!

Gattina said...

I only drink Espresso (with an Italian husband it's not avoidable) so to what should I switch ?

JAM said...

I love these. I actually do always specify that my drive through order is to go. That, with my hick southern accent usually gets a funny reaction.

I'm so going to start using the prophecy one. On my family.

Thanks for visiting my T13. I had accidentally turned off comments, but thanks for stopping by!

Darla said...

You crack me up! If my sons were older, I'd try that last one. Right now I'd just have to repeat myself twenty times, and they still wouldn't get it.

Missy said...

Cute! I was ROFLM*O @ "Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso."

Back when I worked at McDonald's we had a regular customer who would order through the drive-thru and come inside to eat. She had many small children and it was easier to order and pay with them in their car seats. While we assembled the order she got the kids seated and came up for the food. I thought she was brilliant!

Stand near a tall building and stare up at the top. Every so often point at something. Once a crowd has gathered wander off. Come back a while later to see if it still there.

Miss Frou Frou said...

Great list - another thing to do is get into a lift but face the back of the door... really freaks people out!

she said...

I know I've seen this list before, but it has me giggling every time. I used to use "in theory" a lot when I was training new software techs. IE: "In theory, it works like this". Never did of course. I think I'll swap that out for the prophecy line now ;)

Rosemarie said...

I'm linking this one too! Are you a comedian? You should be! Is this all in your head?
