I received the following email from my mate over in Southern Ireland the other day. It started like this . . .
..it's harder than it looks! Erase my answers, enter yours, send it on to 10 people including the one that sent this to you. *Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following...*They have to be real places, names, things...nothing made up! Try to use different answers if the person in front of you had the same 1st initial. You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question. Use your first name (no nicknames).
Okay. Simple enough, right? Think again.
My friend's first initial is A. Here are her answers . . .
FOUR LETTER WORD: Duck
VEHICLE: Car / Mazda
TV SHOW: Two & a Half Men
BOY NAME: Jason
GIRL NAME: Clodagh
SOMETHING YOU WEAR: Underwear
FOOD: Spag Ball
SOMETHING FOUND IN A BATHROOM: Shampoo
REASON FOR BEING LATE: Puncture
STATE OR COUNTRY: Asia
I couldn't help but wonder if I'd missed something, since only one (and a half, I suppose) of her answers began with "A". But when I emailed her to point this out and got a response which made even less sense, I have to suspect that she just completely missed the point . . .
All the same it gave me a much needed laugh, and thank goodness for that since I hate Tuesdays so much!
And speaking of which . . . this week's installment of Cheer-me-up-Tuesday comes courtesy of various product warnings which made me laugh out loud, borrowed from snopes.com . . . (here is the link to the exact page too as I did leave a couple out, but I would recommend exploring the whole website because it's pretty damn interesting)
