Adult Truths for 2012

*** Adult Truths ***
1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

Oh my gosh! Those are all so very true! It was like they came out of my head as well. Why did we go through so much torture to learn "penmanship"???

rosaria said...

Penmanship? Well, I hate to admit it, but it has proven useless even for someone like me trained by nuns who cared for such things.

Ruth said...

All of these are awesome!
Amen to the need for sarcasm font. Some people are truly clueless and never get anything.
I think the way you find out how to fold a fitted sheet is to become a maid in a hotel. That is how I know.

River said...

#1, Yes! Yes! Yes! I think I'll recruit my daughter for this one.

Brian Miller said...

ha. nice....i so need a nap...and i have only been up an hour...still playing catch up from the trip

Dawn @Lighten Up! said...

Oh, these are great! I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap, too! Because I''m always tired, too!

Nicki said...

Oh my Gawd!! I totally agree with the MapQuest one...something I have always thought of but never realized I thought of it. But...number 8?!! I was just saying out loud 2 days ago that I wish they would tell us how the person died!!!

SherilinR said...

so many true & profound statements in there!

Terri Sonoda said...

2, 4 and 19 <---totally agree with. Loved this. It was the chuckle I needed to get my day started. Thanks Eva!

Kara said...

I totally agree with #4 - there is DEFINITELY a need for a sarcasm font!
But #2 is beyond my understanding. I mean, I am NEVER wrong. Ever. It just never happens. Never ever. --- see?! I need a sarcasm font!

Sue said...

I need the sarcasm font, for sure. And the rest of these were stellar, too.


Kristina P. said...

Yes to all of these!!!

Helene said...

So many of those are true...I always wonder why Mapquest gives you directions on how to get out of your own neighborhood.

And as morbid as it sounds, I too with obituaries gave the reason why someone died. I guess I'm nosy that way.

Al Penwasser said...

As far as #16, I think Kay is a slut.
These were fantastic!

Kristy said...

I love this! Number 1 had me LOL at the start. #10 is my greatest excuse for my decisions.

Reeni said...

Love these! Especially #1!

Pat said...

I don't care what anyone says, those are funny right there!

The Frisky Virgin said...

#5, #10 (bad or dorky decision in my case), and #16 cracked me up! LOL

Oh, and I'm not even paying attention to Blue Ray. DVD's work just fine for me. lol

Eva Gallant said...

Dawn: The great thing about being retired is you can nap whenever you want!

Terri: You are so welcome, as always!

Frisky: I'm bummed because I still have movies on VCR tapes that I liked, and Mr. Eva got rid of the VCR!
