Ramblings ...

My sister informs me that reading my blog is her only reason for living and that when I don't post, she can't go on. Well, okay, she didn't say that exactly, but she did tell me that I'm the source of her amusement and I haven't posted for a few days, and therefore, she's not amused. Nothing like a little pressure! Now I have to be all amusing or something!

So in my attempt to be amusing, I thought I would share some random ramblings and thoughts I've had over the last few days.

1. I'm looking at a package of diapers and it has instructions on it. One of the instructions is, "For best results, change diaper several times a day." If someone is so stupid/irresponsible they can't figure that one out for themselves, why are they allowed to be in charge of small children?

2. When someone is diagnosed with a terminal cancer, they say, "The doctors give me three months to live." The doctors gave them that long? Wow, those are some pretty powerful doctors. Last time I checked, God was in charge of life and death. I'd like to start a huge movement that we all say, "The doctors estimate I have three months" or something that makes the doctors sound just a little less all-powerful. I have an uncle who was "given" six weeks and eight years later, he's still kickin'.

3. I think there must be some kind of conspiracy going on between the radio stations - why do they all go to commercial at exactly the same time? There should be a law made that radio stations must stagger out their commercials so I can always find music somewhere when I flip the dial. That is, after all, why I have the radio on.

4. Instructions on microwave dinners - "Caution. Food will be hot." Well, I sure hope so, seein' as how it just came out of the microwave. (See #1)

Here's wishing you all a happy Monday, and be sure to check out the new reviews on my sidebar. "Agent in Old Lace" seems to be pretty universally enjoyed. That's a very good thing.

I so agree with #3. There must be a conspiracy going on. Thank goodness for MP3 players and/or CD players

I loved the radio station one. It's so true to life. And 1 and 4 are hilarious. Sad, but hilarious!

Leigh said...

Thanks sis, for keeping me entertained! Thoroughly enjoyed this.
The commercials on TV do the same thing too.

Well hey there you!

Yes, I was amused by your random ramblings. No, I'm not your sister, but you are still MY only source of amusement so ... thank you!

But, I have to say ... the first time I found these odd spongy stuff all over my floor I was completely dumbfounded as to what it might be. It wasn't until I saw my child leaving a trail of such stuff wherever he toddled that it dawned on me. I'd left his diaper so long that the engorged STUFF was just plain falling out. It had nowhere else to go!

So, see? Some of us are dumb enough to need instructions on the diapers, lol.

Amen! I also love the instructions on the shampoo bottle. Seriously, we need those?

And I think radio stations and TV channels are part of the same conspiracy. Their commercials are either at the same time or slightly staggered, so suddenly there's nothing to listen to/watch. Irritating. I think radio and TV that you have to pay an arm and a leg for are behind the conspiracy, myself.

Glad I could lend some sparkle to your dull existence. :)

See? You entertain us all regularly. And random ramblings from you are jokes of the day for the rest of us.

Thanks for keeping us entertained.

I love random musings. And, I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't like Agent in Old Lace!!

Terresa said...

Love your musings here, esp. #1 & #2...yeah, like when do docs "give" us however much more time to live? Great viewpoint, one I agree with completely!!

Rukia said...

here here on #3! both radio and TV

Chas Hathaway said...

Ha, HAAAA! I think on the diapers they should have a little arrow pointing at the top that says, "Insert baby here"

I've wondered about the radio thing, and I think I've got it figured out. Most of them just spend 3/4 of their air time on commercials, so really it's just a little rare to have music on the radio.

With cautions signs, I am mostly amused by the ones with the little stick guy. You know, the one showing you how NOT to do it. Poor guy is usually either getting crushed into something or is ablaze. I always want to say, "Man! Stinks to be you!"
