    A few thoughts....
    1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

    2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

    3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

    4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

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

    6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

    7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

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

    9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

    10. Bad decisions make good stories.

    11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

    12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

    13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

    14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

    15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

    16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

    17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

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

    19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

    20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

    21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

    22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

    23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

    24. I have never won a free t-shirt that wasn't at least two sizes too big.

    25. Somewhere, a smart Lasik surgeon has an office full of brochures that are all slightly out of focus.

    26. Is Netflix the second thing keeping the US Postal Service running?

    27. Why is it, that if I dropped one nut working on an engine, I feel like I've dropped two?

    I'm the one Fire and Rescue calls, when they need to be Rescued.

      28. I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
      have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
      sticks when they've invented the lighter?

      29. The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This
      recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never
      be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

      30. Shots.

      31. Goodbye, Mr. C.

      32. I Love lamp.

      33. When changing lanes from the far right lane, to the far left lane, it is not appropriate to use your right turn signal.

      34. Follow the glowing green monkey!

        35. Bunny men are scary.

        36. Most mechanics think women are dumb when it comes to their own vehicles.

            39. Why is it always quiet when the office is fully staffed, but when it is short handed all heck breaks loose?

              40. You know what you can never find when you need one? Leprechauns. Where are those little guys?!

              41. Everyone ignored the elephant in the room, but I gave him peanuts, because no one likes to be shunned.

              42. In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

                43. Why do you have to click 'Start' to turn your computer off.

                44. Why is it called a 'hot water heater'. If the water was hot..you wouldn't have to heat it.

                45. And what about a.. $#it eating grin? I don't even have a clue about the origin of that!!

                              Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
