Go to fullsize image Go to fullsize image Go to fullsize image

So Easter is coming and I don’t know about anyone else but I think it’s the best holiday out there.  Nothing is more fun than finding random hidden eggs and getting all dressed up to get dirty and then sitting by a giant rabbit and smiling!

Go to fullsize imageI always get excited because Peeps come out and now they have come  out in all sorts of color like green, pink, and blue apart from the standard yellow and now they have rabbits.  I think hey need to stick with standard chocolate rabbits, but what do I care I just can’t get enough peeps.  I know I went shopping yesterday and felt truly bad for m friend because she wanted pink bunnies and really they didn’t have any 😦  Sad face I know I even went up and down all the 500 checkout aisles at Walmart to see if they had them nope – not even close all chickens no rabbits!  They had every other color for the rabbits but no pink ones.

Well at least she got her Robin’s Egg candies.  Although she pouted it still wasn’t the same…now how awfully sad is that?!

910: The extra sauce that lingers in the carry out bag

Go to fullsize imageWhy is it that when you buy Chinese food it always seems to spill in the bag?!  No matter how careful you are to slowly go around curves or to slowly brake at red lights the sauce if delicious gooeyness just seems to get inside your bag!  Thus destroying your napkins now soaked in the gravy and all over your soy sauce and hot mustard packets!

Then when you open the container it drips all over the bag sticking to it now getting all over the table top, fingers, and hands.  Now how awfully messy is that?!

935. When you set your clocks ahead thinking you have 10 extra minutes

Go to fullsize image

So you set all your clocks ahead 10 minutes thinking that you’ll save time and get to work early, but you just happen to forget to set ahead your cell phone alarms.  So as you are preparing for your morning routine you hit the snooze button a few times thinking well I have at least 10 more minutes that’ll be okay.

In all reality, as you are setting up and getting ready you just Go to fullsize imageget out of the door and make it on your way with a minute to spare.  Phew! That was close.  You are setting up your car and smooth sailing to work until you get  on to the highway and there is a 3 mile back up to work now putting you 10 minutes behind your  time.

Then to cool off as you turn off the radio he announces the time to be 5 minutes even later than you had set all your clocks at your house.  Now how awfully time sensitive is that?!

937. Getting stopped at a red light when no one’s there

Go to fullsize image

It’s 2:00 a.m. you are making it back home from the [club/bar] party, and you decide to spice up your route to prevent from getting drowsy, to take a scenic route.  As you are driving through you are on smooth sailing road hitting all of the green lights.  You hear a song you like then turn up the volume and jam out a little tapping on the steering wheel.

As you approach the next intersection you start seeing in the distance it turn yellow.  You begin to slow down since it’s a good few feet away, oh no cars are on either side of the intersection it’ll turn green soon.  As the light then turns red you begin slowing down and creeping to the stop bar.  Still what seems to be a minute you have to now make complete stop idling in neutral will not help.

Go to fullsize imageThere is no one out on this road intersection of traffic and you look at your dashboard clock, 2 minutes has passed by.  You start to lower your music so you can hear the car idling as you are waiting and searching around hoping at least one car from the opposite direction to at least give this wait some purpose.  So you start pulling up forward a little hoping the ground sensors will recognize a car is at the bar.  You then see the opposite direction lights finally turn yellow.

Go to fullsize imageFinally, you think great I’ll get through this light!!  As the light slow turns to red and then you get your car out of park because literally 4 minutes has gone by you hover your foot over the gas pedal.  No, wait.  The turn signal has just lit up…

BUT THERE ARE NO CARS OUT HERE!

Now how awful is that?!

946. Taking an extra surprise step in the snow

You can’t believe it!  It actually is snowing!  So you layer on 3 shirts, 2 pants, 2 thick socks, gloves, a scarf, glasses, a hoodie, boots, and a thick winter jacket!  Good to go!  So you get outside to enjoy the snow as in some areas like ours it’s just a rarity!  So you figure why not walk to 7-11 it’s open cause you know they are open all the time kinda like Walmart, it just never seems to close!

So as you take steps towards the sidewalk things to be doing well!  I got this down you think.  So you just hobble along the snow as best as you can – hey what can I say it’s better than shoveling it!  Anyhow, as you make your journey 2 short blocks to get some coffee you get to the cross walk.  You cross the street carefully not to make sure you slide off on some black ice so you then search for the curb and sidewalk.  Since the roads are rather covered in thick snow you make due with where you think the sidewalk might be located.  You continue to look a bit as the snow just flurries by your face not making any of this better.

Searching …

Searching….

THERE! Found a spot, you jump on it a little bit, good continue the walk and then you take a step good …feels about safe and then you look over and notice the street lamp post is a bit close to your left isn’t the sidewalk to the left of it and as you turn your foot DROPS deep down a pocket of snow and sinks causing you to lose your footing and balance and topple in the snow.  Great!!!!  How nice!

Oh nice here comes a car, now how awful is that?!

951. Walking down the sidewalk to the beat of a song, but off key

Go to fullsize image

So taking your leisurely walk down the block to jolt up your day.  You just finish uploading a fresh mix of songs to inspire your day and get the energy flowing. Nothing could go wrong for you this fine morning.

As you check the weather online

Pick out the cool workout attire

You set your shoes on and

Out the door for a good round or so.

Now as you cue up your music you start feeling the energy come alive and then you skip a song or two and it’s that song you wanted that gets you in the energy crazed mood.  You want to dance in the streets – but you can’t.  You want to sing out loud – but you have no voice.  So what do you do?

You walk to the beat of the music.  That’s right it’s all you!  You’re workin’ it.  Get it Get it!  You’re on fire!  That’s okay if the cars down the street see you doin’ your thing.  Cause it’s your song.  Own the moment.

Then you trip up badly on the sidewalk not noticing the uneven pavement.  Go to fullsize image

It’s okay…no one saw you until you hear

HONK!!!!! HONK!!!!!!

Saw that!

Now how awful is that?!
