10 Random Things I Enjoy

In no particular order…….

1. Tall old ladies

2. Standing at line at Spot Coffee and telling the woman behind me, “I like your baby” (as if I were talking about a jacket or a haircut), and getting the good-natured response, “Thanks. He’s new.”

3. Absolut Mandarin and soda

4. Texting

5. Making jokes on the way to Artpark about stopping at Fantasy Island, eating funnel cake and going on some rides, and then calling in sick dizzy to work.

6. Three-legged dogs

7. Men who think robots and monkeys are funny/scary.

8. Egg McMuffins without the egg

9. Freshly sharpened pencils

10.  People who not only understand that some jokes get funnier with repetition, but who also agree with me about WHICH jokes get funnier with repetition.

    Standing at line at Spot Coffee and telling the woman behind me, “I like your baby” (as if I were talking about a jacket or a haircut), and getting the good-natured response, “Thanks. He’s new.”

    This is the funniest thing I’ve heard in awhile.

    “Thanks. He’s new.”
    Classic!

    What the hell is an Egg McMuffin w/o the egg??? Thats just a slab of cdn. bacon on an english muffin. There is nothing American about that. Check out the chicken biscuit. Now that is bad-ass!!!

    And a slice of American Cheese, Dan! I know it’s weird, but an Egg McMuffin without egg is delicious, and it doesn’t make you feel all yucky and greasy the way it does with the egg.

    I’ll have to get me a chicken biscuit though.

    This is a splendid list, Katebits! I especially agree with items 9 and 10.

    And that’s my story.

    Did that second thing really happen? Because that’s hilarious! (I love it when I make a joke with a stranger and they play along.)

    I’ll have to try the Egg McMuffin without the egg. I’ve never tried one at all, because it has egg in it. I often order the Sausage Egg Biscuit without the egg, though. Yummy.

    Numbers 9 and 4 all the way! I’m glad I have unlimited texts or I’d be even deeper in debt. =P
    And if I ever have a kid (yeah right, lol) I’m going to pull the “thanks, he’s new” line on everyone who compliments him until he’s at least six, if only so I can enjoy the weird looks on people’s faces.
    *Makes mental note to try Absolut Mandarin*

    How tall and how old to qualify? I may be close.

    Freshly sharpened pencils… those are becoming a thing of the past. I am going to install an old fashioned sharpener next to my desk for pure joy.

    #2 is hilarious. And I’ll agree that #3 is good (as is Absolut Ruby Red and cranberry juice).

    When people have told me they think my daughter is cute I reply, I know.

    Other favorite things… smelling fresh cut grass for the first time after winter and laughing until you cry.

    Dan, she likes the McMuffin part.

    “I like your baby” (as if I were talking about a jacket or a haircut), and getting the good-natured response, “Thanks. He’s new.”

    I do that!!!!!!

    Blizten, you may be tall enough to qualify (I’m thinking the cut off is in the 5’9″ range), but there is no way you are old enough. I’m thinking the cut off there is, like, 65 at least.

    When my daughter was about…ohm 9, the eye doctor told her, “Your a very pretty girl”. Without missing a beat she replied, “Yep, that’s what they tell me.”

    OMG freshly sharp pencils… brings back memories… I used to love to sharpen pencils… there is just something about the old fashioned metal crank style sharpeners… and that smell… ok I am a weird-o… sorry…
