Public Service Announcement. How To Avoid Boredom 2

Welcome to the Weekend Edition.

On June 30, 2005 I wrote a blog that was addressing boredom and ways to avoid it. This is a followup on that article.

First let's address ways to avoid being bored while in a public bathroom shall we? Wait until someone is in the stall next to you, reach your hand under the stall wall and ask..."May I borrow a highlighter?" If you are too impatient to wait for a neighbor do this. Wait until there are several others in the bathroom and from inside your stall proclaim..."Oh geez...I shouldn't have put my lips on THAT!" Avoid amateur antics such as applauding whenever you hear gasseous emissions.

Elevators are a great place to breakup monotony. Nesxt time you're in an elevator drop your pen and wait for someone to bend down to retrieve it for you. As soon as they touch it shout..."Hey that's mine!!" If you have alergies or hay fever...carry a tissue, wipe your nose and sniffle. Look at another person and tell them..."I caught a virus from my computer." Another fav is just before exiting the elevator...push all the buttons.

Try decorating your Christmas tree with Easter Eggs and put a Jack-o-lantern under it too. Nothing else.

When paying your taxes to the IRS always use a third party check.

Follow a funeral procession and honk.

When shaking hands with someone always initiate a thumb wrestling contest.

Put a large piece of broccoli between your upper lip and teeth. Talk to everyone.

Got a tube of nearly used up super glue? Take it to the grocery store Returns Desk and lament..."This hemorrhoid creme is too sticky."

Follow these simple guidelines and you'll never be bored. You may want to check the original post for additional ideas.

I hope to God I am never in a public restroom with you. I'd hate to die laughing in one.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

You are an odd, odd man! But very funny. I don't know how you have the time to come up with this stuff. Do you have a hidden stockpile of blog material stashed somewhere?

Kitten I am here to serve. Thanks. I took that shot on my last date as I was convicing her I was good in bed. I was doing great until I noticed a crucifix around her neck.

Saint I am merely the product of a really malaligned gene pool. Some people see a world of black and white. Some see good and bad. Some even see it through rose colored glasses. I see opportunity to blog.

Dear Darth Dad

Thanks again for more tips to alleviate boredom
Idle hands are the devils plaything and all

Speaking of idle hands and devil’s playthings

Me and your other son Cabo have an etiquette question for you Pops

Sweetthang asked us to guess what her color of the day thing was all about. It was naturally surmised that the color of the day was determined by the color of her undergarments. sweetthang2877

We were wondering though, what is the proper etiquette regarding visualizing other blogger's undergarments? Is it the proper course to put a whole lot of thought and visualization in to such a task? Is it considered impolite to not think enough about other blogger’s undergarments?

P.S. I still get misty eyed thinking about our family Christmas Easter Eggs Jack-o-lantern Tree.

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

Luke my son, as you and your brother know, matters of etiquette are my specialty. You know often people question whether it is proper to eat chicken with the fingers. It is not proper. Chicken should be eaten with the mouth and the fingers eaten separately. That was a freebie.

As to the undergarment is very polite to visualize undergarments of FEMALE bloggers. Doing so to male bloggers will result in eye darkening and lip swelling. The color of the day is a female ritual which dates back to the pre-Yourassic era when women first discovered that she who controls the vagina controls the color of the cave. Little has changed. Never try to understand this. Go along with it. Life will be much less painful.

hahaha nbtnt: when i worked in a fast food restaurant, i had a guest that ordered and then said "to go" in drive thru. i told him no, he could NOT have it to go. and then handed him his food on a tray when it was ready. (it was the asst. mgr's boyfriend and a regular customer... hence i didn't get fired)

another time, due to his request always for "extra crispy" fries... i took some of the blackened ones from the oil and arranged them carefully on top.

Hmm... also it was a mexican restaurant. I still remember a couple guests that would always request extra super hot sauce on their food. if they saw me making it... they'd say "nevermind--make that easy super hot".

not that i miss that job... but i sure had fun

Put Mosquito Netting Around Your Work Area And Play Tropical Sounds All Day <--has anybody done that one??? it actually sounds like a lot of fun i think it would actually go very well with my "I need a vacation!!" pin.

Elevator rides:

- Face IN, blocking the door.
- Start singing with the elevator music. If there is none, make something up. Songs from the popular kids' fave, the Wiggles, are always a hit.
- Announce passing floors the way they used to in department stores (third floor: lingerie and cardiac equipment...)
- Sniff, then start looking at the others in an accusatory way. This is much easier, by the way, if you are facing IN.
- Initiate a conversation by asking everyone on board what they would consider the most horrific way to die (Like, what about being stuck in an elevator when the cable snaps?).

TDA- LMAO!!! I love the highligher idea! And, the elevator ones! Too funny! You're hysterical! No wonder I like you so much!!

Nbtnt- Those are great, too! I got that in an email a few months ago & I laughed my ass off! I actually did page myself over the intercom. Needless to say, everyone was dumbfounded! It was funny to watch all my coworkers stop what they were doing and look at each other in total confusion!
