    have you been practicing?

    How 'bout this:

    Laugh loudly at inappropriate times in a movie, ie, a sad scene or a sex scene....

    (I've often been tempted just to break the 'tension'...)

    I've done number 57 (cutting the grass with scissors) and number 64 (waiting to give people static electricity shocks) as a child. I've known the person who was number 49 (first in the phone book - the name was Aab).

    I think that the most annoying thing I used to do, from my brothers' point of view, was to make up songs about them describing what they were doing at the moment. ;) But now that they're older, they like the attention.

    For annoying habbits: I knew a little kid who was very picky about food and who wouldn't eat fish. The first night she was over at our house, we had breaded chicken for dinner. The second night, dad baked battered cod. I told him that the girl wouldn't touch it, but dad told me not to let on. That night, she smiled up from her dinner and said, "This chicken is even better than the chicken we had last night!" lol

    Prickes, I liked the dentist costume one. :)

    For being a wet blanket, a relative of mine used to give me the best blueberries when I'd come to visit. Then she'd say, while I was eating, "Blueberries have a lot of iron in them. Good for THAT TIME OF MONTH." More than a little embarrassing!

    Dad's mother used to remind Dad too many times to "drive carefully." Finally I called back, as we were pulling out of the driveway for our four hour drive, "Don't worry Oma, I'll take care of it. I'll be tickling him the whole way!" Then Dad would chime in with, "I'm not wearing any underwear, Mom!" It got to be tradition that that's what we would say whenever we left her place after a visit. :)

    Lol, thanks for the laughs.

    Victoria, I worked in a grocery store for awhile many years ago and there was a lady who would ALWAYS bring in massive quantities of change to pay for her purchases. I always wondered where she got it. Oooooooooo we hated seeing her coming!!!

    Prickles, everyone thinks I'm a little nuts anyway!

    Here's a few more for the list:

    - Answer the phone with, "You have my attention." Honestly, it really throws people off. I saw it on the Discovery Channel and gave it a try. Works nearly every time. People pause and say, "Hello?" in a bewildered tone that's really funny. :)

    - If a wrong number calls, pretend to be the person or business they are trying to reach. (I got a call once from a nice old lady thinking I was one of her friends. She kept telling me to turn the TV to channel 3 because there was some sort of swimming thing on. I didn't try to pretend I was who she was trying to call, but she was in such a rush that I couldn't explain it was a wrong number!)

    - Narrate other people's lives. Especially include what they are thinking about and what they are going to say.

    #101: misspell everyone's name, like I just did yours?

    I LOVE the picture on your profile and your comment below it!!!... yes, we need to make the 'rumpled-up' look haute couture!

    And Gretchen.... I have been guilty of doing that, altho not for a LOT of dollars worth of merchandise...

    PS Shannon -Bet your brothers loved every minute!

    I've done the pennies one too. :) I was 14 and trying to buy five cent candies. The 7-11 clerk just glared at me. He finally took my word for it that I had a dollar in pennies so he wouldn't have to count them.

    Willow, hey...funny you should mention #47...My daughter and I were just talking about this...How it's still o.k. for society to crack jokes at being overweight...We got several doses of it last night in an other wise good movie.

    I have always been aware of these as being insensitive b/c I have always been overweight...

    But I am much more adamant about it now because my beautiful 14 year old daughter thinks shes fat!!! She has
    done harm to herself trying to become thinner...

    While society seems to realize all these girls with eating
    and self image issues exist...they don't seem to care enough to quit with the ugly,cruel,jokes...

    Laughter not always the best medicine...but then again,
    who's laughing?!?!

    Victoria...I was venting towards society...not you...I understand the brain fog!!!!!!!

    I often sign things before reading them...get too distracted to finish reading or wouldn't remember it all
    even if I did finish reading it!!

    I'm extra sensitive about weight issues right now...my
    daughter and all....
    anyway, thanks for removing it...

    I am overweight, but I thought #47 was funny. I do that to myself sometimes too...
