~random thoughts from people our age~

1} More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.

2} I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

3} Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the “people you may know” feature on Facebook people that I should know, but I can't place the hair or last name, what happened?

4} There is a great need for sarcasm font.

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

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

7} The only time I look forward to a red light is when I want to text.

8} Lol has gone from meaning, “laugh out loud” to “I have nothing else to say”.

9} I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

10} I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

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

12} How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear what they said or really care?

13} What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

14} MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood and honestly they just confuse me.

15} Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

16} I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.

17} I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

18} Whenever I’m Facebook checking someone out and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Barbie Doll Dream House that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don’t mind if I do!

19} Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I’m from, this shouldn’t be a problem….

20} I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What’d you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?

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

22} Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed for pedophiles…

23} It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
xoxo

:) Absolutely hilarious! It was as though you were inside my head thinking the exact same thoughts I have always had! Thanks for the chuckle!

Kim said...

Very good and love them all.... Happy SundaY!

Hillcrest Acres said...

Thanks for the giggles. I can so relate to many of them.

No. 7 cracked me up because I kept praying I would hit red light after red light the other day cuz I had some good texting going on.

No. 21 is so true and I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I'm still laughing not only because that was Hilarious, but because I have had many of the same thoughts!!! #1,2, 4, 5, 6, 9,11, 12, 14 and definitely 15, 19, 20 & 23.
Thanks for making my day!

You are absulutley pain-in-the side, tears rolling down my eyes hillarious! Trouble is I don't think it would be so funny if I didn't think the same way 99% of the time. Oh who am I kidding 100%.
Thanks for getting my morning off with a smile!

Angie said...

Ok 20 was hilarious!

alee said...

Thank you for making me laugh today :)...

Lori said...

I Love, love, love this list!! My absolute favorite is the sarcasm font... #5 is tricky but possible ~ comes from working in the bedding department of a store for years! I can also relate to #11 and #18 along with more, but these were my favorites. Thank you for making me laugh on a rainy Sunday afternoon when I am sick as a dog ~ just home from the grocery store and still have to make chili!

Julie Harward said...

LOL..LOL..LOL I didn't know you were so funny! I loved every one of those...we agree..I think we are all more alike than different! I heard the other day that 75% of people will admit to peeing in the shower..I love it when people fess-up and are honest! Once a friend admitted to buying a giant candy bar and eating it before she got home to her family..I thought I was the only one that piggy! LOL :D

Loved this, you had me laughing, because it is all so true. Mine would be, when and how do people come up with these things.
Have a great day

Nichole said...

Hilarious! No.5 - someone taught me how to fold a fitted sheet last year and put it inside the flat sheet with the cases. I've never been so excited to fold laundry in my life and my linen closet looks 100% better!

jessica said...

So funny! I loved it!
I just had to tell you that I have been following you since you first posted on rate my space. Today I started my blog, and my first post tells the story about how I never knew what a blog was and how you were the first blog to inspire me to start my own!
So thank you Melanie for all of your inspirational pictures, how-to's and giving us a glimpse into your life.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

I sooo agree with you on everything. Were we sepereated at birth?! (I'm not going to put lol)

Laura @ The Steen Style said...

Hah! We had this circling around at work - one of the best e-mails ever!! They are all so true.

lkjatl said...

Those are great!!! Thanks for the laugh.

alice said...

Too funny, I can relate to almost all of those! Thanks for the laugh.

Last night of vacation. We're half-way home. Husband and kids are at the hotel pool. I'm in blog withdrawal. This was exactly what I needed. You must be some kind of a voodoo mind-reader, because I've had many of the same thoughts...(Hello, I feel sorry for the freezer!) I also enjoy the fact that you dropped a couple of swears. I have no idea why this pleases me, it just does.

meredith said...

i absolutely loved this! just read it, and it made my sunday evening! :)

Tracey Bower- Bower Studio said...

I literally did laugh out loud with #18 as I was just on FB and had that happen! Thanks for posting this!

Aubree @ The Weathered Cottage said...

Tamsyn said...

I laughed because they're all (sadly) true!

Ryan said...

gigiandoliver said...

So funny! And so sad because I can so relate!

I laughed out loud at #13...which isn't anything unusual, unless your office building is very quiet at the moment.

Heather's Haven said...

High-larious! Needed a laugh on this slow Monday afternoon.
I completely agree about folding the fitted sheets. I roll then up and shove them in the linen closet.

stdogz said...

OMG. I <3 U. This is exactly what goes through my mind most days. Thank you for putting it into words.

Sew Create It - Jane said...

As an addendum to number 7...why is it when you are wishing for a red light to text, you never catch one!! :o)

Thanks for the laugh!
