Fun Friday

Welcome, once again, to Fun Friday. Today's edition is from an email I received this week. It made me giggle, I hope it does the same for you. Enjoy your weekend!

12 Ways To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity

1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

2. Page yourself on the intercom. Don't disguise your voice!

3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to expresso.

5. In the memo field of all your cheques write 'for marijuana'.

6. Skip down the hall rather than walk and see how many looks you get.

7. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat.

8. Specify that your drive-through order is 'to go'.

9. Sing Along At The Opera. 9. Sing along at the opera.

10. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you have a headache.

11. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream "I won! I won!"

And The Final Way To Keep A Healthy Level Of Insanity (men only - although it would even be more fun for women)

12. Pick up a box of condoms at the pharmacy and go to the counter and ask where the fitting room is.


  1. They are so funny and if I did them, my family would have proof I'm nuts.


  2. Elspeth - Oh, thank you for this!! I always look forward to your Fun Friday posts (as I do to all of your posts, of course). I just love these!!! I may go into one of my classes one day and ask my students if they want fries with that, just to see what they say ;-). Of course, I write mysteries, so maybe that's crazy enough... ;-)

  3. Clarissa; Aren't they great? I love them.

    Margot; They do fire the imagination, don't they?

  4. Ah, notes from my planet!!
    Thanks deario - you lift my day. I especially like #2 - it is my kind of weirdness.

  5. These were good. Made me laugh out loud, especially the last one. Glad you do this every week.

  6. Love them all!
    Have a marvelous weekend.

  7. These are wonderful! That last one had me falling out of my chair.

  8. These are too funny. Fun way to start the weekend.

  9. I bet you don´t know anyone who tried no 12 - in Britain? (They´d be expatriated). I remember when we stayed in Reading for six months and I tried to register with a GP. The secretary wanted to know when I had last had a cervical smear, and every time I asked her to explain what that was, the conversation always ended. All she would say was that it didn´t hurt.
