Things I Should Have Figured Out by Now


(Pardon the crude picture- my Flash project is hogging my free time)

I must be a slow learner. Here's some tidbits I haven't mastered in my four decades on this planet:
  • Hot surfaces are, in fact, hot.
  • Sharp objects are, in fact, sharp.
  • Wet floors are, in fact, slippery.
  • Wet paint is, in fact, wet.
  • Pens have caps for a reason.
  • Pointing out that you "hardly ever watch television" impresses nobody and makes you look like an ass, particularly if you bring it up more than once.
  • Ignore your maybe I shouldn't park here intuition at your own peril.

The television comment cracks me up most of all. I don't watch tv, but to say that is so unpleasant, supercilious and peculiar-- better to reach for some lip gloss. (Jones brand orange and cream.)

I don't watch TV either. I started to say that yesterday but felt uncomfortable saying it!!!

Hi Sally, Stray,
"I don't watch much t.v." is sister sentence of "I don't eat that stuff" and "I don't buy/read those things."

I like the colors in your picture! Pens have caps for a reason? You should see our sheets (bed). Whenever we have someone spend the night we have to go to Ross Dress for Less and buy new sheets.

You said it, Linda,
My pens are either drying out or seeping ink into hapless fabric. My sheet have ink spots too.

Hi Sg,
I figured that your other message was aimed at Linda. The blogher reference clued me in. :)
Still not sure what a bottle of ky is. Kryptonite?

s said...

yeah, yeah, that's right. It was a free sample from conference vendors, and when I dumped out my purse on Linda's bed, it all spilled everywhere.
