My sister, seriously a size nothing(!), was working out at the gym on a machine nicely titled, Thigh Abductor. (How awesome is that name?) Well there she was, getting her thighs abducted when she felt the elastic on her underwear give way to some rumbling. Fellow worker-outers heard the commotion and looked over…. and my sis, trying to convey a sense of calm kept going until BAM! Her underwear exploded in a most spectacular fashion, and little scraps of underwear littered the floor as she embarrassingly ran to the bathroom. I love this story….which leads me to stating some good ideas and bad ideas.
Good Idea– Working out on a machine called Thigh Abductor
Bad Idea- Working out on a machine called Thigh Abductor while wearing dysfunctional panties.
Good Idea– Playing with a giant beach ball titled Big Bertha.
Bad Idea- Playing with a giant beach ball titled Big Bertha and breaking your hip bone unexpectedly when Big Bertha crushes you like the tiny insignificant ant you are. (Really can you ever explain this story to anyone without laughing due to it’s ridiculousness?)
Good Idea– Playing volleyball.
Bad Idea- Playing volleyball and after a smashing victory, doing a celebratory dance that results in breaking your ankle.
Good Idea– Making delicious caramel…
Bad Idea- Making delicious caramel and then licking it off a spoon. It’s frickin’ hot!
Good Idea– Throwing a tomato at someone who deserves it in the heat of the moment.
Bad Idea- Throwing a tomato at someone who deserves it in the heat of the moment, and when they confront you on it- saying something along the lines of- “no I didn’t throw a tomato at you, but I have noticed that people have been getting hit by tomatoes recently. Spooky huh?” (Really? I could have done better…)
Good Idea– Writing haikus to inspire creativity in children.
Bad Idea- Writing haikus when not really knowing how to write them, and in the end writing this one…
She stood at the desk
Confusion clouding her face
Her hair was gone
Good Idea– Thinking mean things but not saying them aloud.
Bad Idea- Thinking mean things and then saying them aloud like, “I thought for a second a group of cats got together and all decided to meow incessantly, and then I realized it was just you, talking.”
I have so many more I could share but really isn’t that enough? I have been fortunate enough to have done a many stupid thing, but in the end, (and I am borrowing from a friend here) if you can’t laugh about these things, what’s the point?
