What’s Up with That?

Sunday, July 30th, 2006

Have you ever heard someone say something and right away thought to yourself just how stupid what they said sounded? Happened to me tonight. Someone on TV said that a car had “caught fire”. Caught fire. That has always sounded ridiculous to me. How can a car “catch fire”? The whole idea of catching something implies that someone or something threw that which was caught…does it not? Who threw the fire that the car caught? Why did the car catch it? Why not just miss it on purpose. Cars, houses, fields, forests, all catching fire.

Yep, I was running away with this rant in my head when I reluctantly remembered a now famous roll of toilet paper that “caught fire”…Okay, so maybe I was responsible for throwing that particular bit of fire. Maybe the hapless roll of toilet paper had no choice but to catch that fire. Maybe I just need to shut my mouth.

Air Purification

Monday, July 24th, 2006

As any good southerner knows, striking a match is the best form of air purification in a certain room of the house…work with me here. Anywho, last night, as I began the pruification process in the bathroom…uh, uh, I mean library, I had a bit of a misfire.

You see, I prefer the large kitchen matches…the wooden stick ones. Well, apparently I am much stronger than I thought or this was just a particularly weak match, but the tip of the match flew off in a blaze of glory like so many meteors streaking through the night sky. “Whoops”, I said, trying to shrug off the mishap. I immediately noticed a smalll brown spot on the linoleum floor and realized it was actually a tiny burn spot. “Hmmm…this is not so bad. This floor needs replacing anyway.” How’s that for optimism…rosy glasses…the whole shebang?

As I looked back towards the throne to try another purification launch, I noticed a good sized black spot on the roll of toilet paper. Yup, the meteor was slowly burning its way through the double layers. Apparently, the spot on the floor was just a little debris, like sponge stuff falling off the shuttle. The bulk of the comet hit the toilet paper. Thank God for Cottonelle.

At least I didn’t burn the house down. Flaming toilet paper may have been a little hard to explain. :D

Monday, July 17th, 2006

An older lady gets pulled over for speeding…

Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?

Officer: Ma’am, you were speeding.

Older Woman: Oh, I see.

Officer: Can I see your license please?

Older Woman: I’d give it to you but I don’t have one.

Officer: Don’t have one?

Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.

Officer: I see…Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.

Older Woman: I can’t do that.

Officer: Why not?
