How to Maintain Your Insanity

At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars.
See if they slow down.

Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

Every time someone asks you to do something ask, "Want fries with that?"

Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "Inbox."

Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine
addictions, switch to espresso.

In the memo field of all your checks, write "for smuggling diamonds."

Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy."

Don t use any punctuation

As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

With a serious face, order a diet water whenever you go out to eat.

Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."

Sing along at the opera.

Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.

Put mosquito netting around your work area and play jungle sounds all day.

Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.

When your money comes out of the ATM, scream "I won! I won!"

When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot yelling, "Run for your lives!
They're loose!"

Tell your children over dinner, "Due to the economy, we will have to let one of you go."

Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."
My sister once rode through a drive-through on horseback and asked for it to go.

These are great. I'd love to do the one with the hair dryer. That would be funny.

I'm going to try it... especially since I have a white car. Need to get some "cop sunglasses."

Too funny. Carey, you realize we will have to do some of those when you visit this summer. :)

I just thought of something else...

Go to the opera and take along spit-wads. Shoot nearest people in the back of the head and whisper loudly, "Could you hand me another tranquilizer dart?" to the person sitting next to you.

'We're going to have to let you go...'

*laughs* Good one, Nella. I shall have to remember that.

*drives up to take-out window* "Uh, yeah... I'd like a diet water, please, and a cheeseburger - without the cheese - and, oh, make sure it's to-go."
