      Not the way I break a clock. And the blinking digital clocks are never righ until you reset them. Which is just before the power goes out again. And you let it blink for a few months

    My friend really did say this.

    This is just a personal observation. So it may be different with the people around you. But so far anyone I have seen drinking smart water regularly. Has not had any positive effects.

    Remember it better to be thought of as a fool than to open your mouth and prove you are an a****le

      Someone pointed at the half full glass of beer. And asked the half full or empty question. So I quickly drank the rest grabbed the picture of beer and refilled my glass.

      I said don't worry there is more than enough.
      And I can walk home from here.

      Someone asked my drinking limit. So I said " I brought this much money so that's my limit. " damit they liked that answer so much they bough me a couple beers.

    Wen I was a kid, and got a splinter in my hand, my Dad told me "It will stop hurting when the pain goes away". Honest, I thought it was an astounding insight at the time.

    I even thought "He was right. It DID stop hurting when the pain went away".

      I'm so old I remember walks mile away from my parents house and crossing a busy street alone when I was in kindergarten. And no one called the cops. Until after I knocked on someone's door. And the cops just took me home. But then again I remember playing outside as a kid. Because houses generally didn't have air conditioning. Only one rv in the house had a cable box. So the only option was to play outside.

      Oh and you only told your parents where you where going so they could tell any friends who came looking for you where you should be.

        I remember my parents saying "Go play outside". And we would go outside for hours. Sometimes miles away without telling them. We would generally come back when it was getting dark. I don't remember either parent ever worrying about where we were or whether we were OK or not. It's just how it was.

            If you let your son play outside by himself, you should go to jail.

            If you are caught playing with your son, you should go to jail.

            If you let your son play with other kids, you should go to jail.

    When my son was maybe 6 or 7 years old, I remember a conversation we were having where he made two observations.

    "You know that alphabet? It has every letter in it!" and "Those numbers....they just go on forever don't they?"

    Every parent knows those moments when their child has an "Aha" moment like that, where their world is now different.

    Yesterday they delivered a desk my wife ordered. It came in pieces...lots and lots of pieces. It weighs a tad over 80 pounds.

    As I took the pices out of the box, I mentioned that we should have looked for a desk that was either assembled., or where they offered the service for an extra cost.

    My lovely wife then told me they offered the service of home assembly or $100, but she didn't want to spend the money.

    My wife, who is a giving and compassionate person, forgot that it was going to be me putting it together.

    It took a little over 3 hours. Me, stewing in my own petty self pity, and my wife telling me what a great job I was doing.

    Then it was nearly done. We just needed to install the handles on the drawers.
    I installed them on one side, and looked over to her side of the desk.

    She had installed the handles on the inside of the drawers. I laughed for 5 minutes.

    Then we watched a very sad movie (The Father, with Anthony Hopkins), and I burst out laughing two more times. In bed, I started laughing and woke her up.

    Today we were going for a walk, and I started laughing again.

    What's amazing to me is this revelation

    If anyone else did it, it wouldn't have been funny to me. A stranger, a relative, a friend...probably not a chuckle.

    But to me, Cheryl is adorable. Unless she's mad at me, she always makes me smile.

    And to me, her putting the handles on the inside of the drawers was the funniest thing I've ever seen.

    The way she just looked at the drawers and said "Oh Darn!", when she realized what was funny....

    I'm grinning now, just typing this....with our cat Sylvester sleeping on my desk right next to the computer. Snoring.

    A good life.

      I find it disturbing that you have a snoring computer, but I digress.

      I remember my wife buying an expensive computer just after she retired using a little windfall of unused vacation money. She also bought a powered riser and a desk. Muggins here put it all together for her and set it up. I even bought some accessories for it since it was near her birthday. A week later she asked for a divorce. Planned timing.

      I have put many flat packed constructions together after moving into my new place. Most went smoothly, a few errors were made, but corrected. Yes, some can take hours, lot's of sweat and toil, not to mention nervousness at getting it wrong. I bought a printer stand and unnecessarily drilled 4 holes in the top shelf before realizing it was attached a different way. That's just covered with paper to hide them.

      Other than that my construction projects went well. However, my knees were an issue, kneeling down for a long time to do it and trying to get up was painful. I hope you are not finding this out about yours.

      But one thing, taking all these vitamin supplements has completely cured my painful knees, amazing, just the feet to worry about, lol.

        Even though I did all the actual assembly, my wife was invaluable.

        As I was grunting and groaning, crawling around on the floor, she suggested putting it together on the dining room table. A very good idea. And she pointed out things I missed in the instructions.

        If you add us together, I think we have one fully functioning brain.

      My wife bought it from Wayfair. To me, it was cheap materials for a desk. But then, I saw it as a pile of pieces before it was assembled. Had I bought it assembled, I may not have noticed the poorer quality.
      I have to admit, the instruction book for assembly was really well done.

      What if they're not stars? What if they are holes poked in the top of a container so we can breath?

        So well done a number of handles went on the inside of the drawers...

        and for the record... $100 to have it built for you, OR save the $100 and build it yourself and gain a PRICELESS memory... DIY it is!!!

          I joked with my wife that the handle inside the drawer was a genius idea to prevent anyone from being locked inside the drawer.

          Now that you mention it, it was a priceless memory. I'll keep that in mind.



          The instruction book was very clear. In fact, I had already installed two handles, and my wife already installed one handle correctly. It was the second handle she put on the inside of the drawer.

          Her reaction when she realized what she did as what made me laugh. And it was such a small mistake, it just struck me as hilarious. But I laughed for two days because of it.

          Years ago, I bought a new Ford Thunderbird. It was the first car I bought that had an automatic shoulder strap on the seat belt. You would sit down, fasten the seat belt, and the shoulder strap would automatically retract around your shoulder.

          We stopped for ice cream cones shortly after we bought the car. I got in, holding the cone in my left hand, and as the shoulder strap retracted, It pulled my wrist (with the cone in my hand) into my face. My nose got buried in the ice cream. I started laughing, because of how absurd it was. Honestly, it happened in a second, and I couldn't figure out how to get my hand out of the way without dropping the ice cream cone.

          Silly human tricks.

            Sounds like an Inside Job?

            At least your wife had a handle on it.

            Makes a change about the ice cream. You usually just run over the cones.

      That is indoor cats. Outdoor cats some times bring home snakes mice and other things to torture for an hour or so . Or just cause the owner to panic.
