Post a random thought

Since most of my thoughts are not ‘Thread Worthy’ I thought I would find a place for them. Please post the abstract thought bouncing around inside your head.

1st thought of the day. How bad can someone or something stink? One time when coming back from Coba we saw a bunch of vultures flying around and a bunch on the ground. I decided to stop and see it (bad idea)
I have three boys that shower each day and have hundreds of pairs of socks, but when they are kicking back at night in the TV room.
How about in the old days when people never showered and only had one pair of socks?

Randon thought required!!

I have to admit I often ponder that. I feel SO gross if I miss my nightly shower. Sometimes, I can't even fall asleep because of it and I'm in the bathroom at midnight, cuz I can't stand it. I can't even imagine once-a-week baths - ugh!

I guess everyone was just really stinky back then but since everyone stank, people just got used to it.BO, bad breath, unwashed privates, ew ew ew. I imagine there was a scarcity of certain, um, acts compared to today.

morning breath is its own special stink... neither mike nor i can stand it and we always do the big gross out in movies where people roll over in bed and start kissing and whisper-talking right up close first thing in the morning... aaaaaah! it's even more unrealistic than those crazy sheets on TV and in movies that cover the guy up to the waist and the girl up to her armpits...

I'm just realizing how much the ceiling fan in my office is annoying me. On high speed, it's makes a clickity clack noise. Now that I am aware of it, I am horribly irritated by it. Why did I have to become aware of it in the first place?

I told Susie this yesterday. I can't stand it when people born in the US use the word "flat" instead of "apartment." It's so affected.

I also get really annoyed when I'm reading Latin-American novels that read like this: "She went to the tiendafor a refresco, then later she met David for a cerveza at the cantina." Know what I mean?

Of course you don't, you're a nicotine addict ....but you will find that you will be glad you did, and you can do it!

I once told a mexican time-share dude that the concept smelled fishy...
He looked a bit surprised. I wonder if there's a saying like that in MX?

"Bacalado de Bilbado" is the only "saying" in spanish that I know of

Pretty random, eh?

I know it sounds bad, but I like smoking.
I have no desire to quit.



I am NOT looking forward to standing out in 90 degree heat here another couple hrs.
