My new insurance only covers xray specs.

October 27, 2010

Over the past few months my union and my employer have been engaged in increasingly bitter contract negotiations.  It seems like our employer wants to make cutbacks everywhere – including insurance.  Nobody has said anything about xray specs, yet…


10 gallon hat hair.

If you ever feel like a challenge, try drawing hair to resemble a cowboy hat.

Cavemen also went clubbing on the weekend.

Sometimes it’s not “thinking outside the box.”

“Thinking outside the box,” is one of those phrases that I’m a little tired of hearing.  I have a question for any non-American visitors:  is the phrase used in your country?

He knew he’d forgotten something…

I enjoy driving.  Sometimes I enjoy it too much and forget where I am supposed to be going.  When we were first married, my wife naturally took it upon herself to help redirect my attention if I was in danger of missing a turn.  She would tap on her window and say, “don’t forget we are going to the store/church/work/etc.”  As time went on, this routine was shortened to a simple window tap.

She would tap and I would turn.

I wasn’t even aware of the habit until one day we did it with a passenger in the car.

She tapped, I turned and  the passenger laughed until they were sick.
