I love email forwards. Not the ones that say something horrible will befall you if you don't pray to St. (insert fave Catholic name here) like your whole face being waxed (oh wait, that DID happen to me). I love the email forwards that make you laugh; or the pictures like that freaky restaurant in China where you have to climb a really scary mountain to get there...or that restaurant in Japan that's on top of a crane (or something, you know the ones, you've probably have gotten those emails yourself); and those emails that make you think. I do try and look up the more questionable ones, or the political ones on Snopes.com (great resource if you do get sick of some of those email forwards). Anyhow, I though I'd share one of those email forwards I got and liked... So here you go, I'm forwarding one on my blog:
Just try this. It is from an orthopedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind (of course, I’m easily boggled) and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!
1. While sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right Hand. Your foot will change direction. I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.
I don't actually know if this is from an orthopedic surgeon, but it so works....try it.
Maybe I'll make this a regular thing on my blog...I need a title for it, Oh hey, I will do a contest, the prize will be determined later...what should I call it and what day should I do it....let me know in the comments section.
OK, on to some randomness
So Jason was hemming and hawing about going to the ER last Saturday (where does that phrase come from, hemming and hawing, is that farmer talk?). So I said (not very patiently, I might add)..."Fine, you're worth more dead anyway"
Jason: (in his I'm an engineer and have a superior sense of logic voice) You have to take into consideration that I'm young (I did gaffaw at this point) and have quite a few more years of working.
Me: (did the math for him, because since he is an engineer he has to see the numbers)...See, I'd be one rich widow, so by my making you go to the ER proves that I love you, now get in the damn car.
Him: (silence for awhile..but he did get in the car) I love you too, honey.
And I do love him dearly, it's why I fuss about him. He's my rock.
more randomness...my parents' bid was accepted and they will be new home owners in the next month or so, here in Colorado...great news for me because I haven't lived in the same city as my mother since I was nine.
