Are you one to easily accept a challenge? Take on a bet? Not me. I'm pretty cautious by nature. However, when my officemate, Miss Sara Jackson threw up the "saltine cracker challenge" I had to bite (literally).
I love saltine crackers. Eat ten in a minute? I can eat them two at a time! "Too bad we don't have any here now, I'd do it!" I bragged to Sara. Fifteen minutes later Sara returned with saltine packets from Subway. Suddenly our office has a few spectators...Wayne from IT is running a stop clock, Desiree from Client Services is secretly hiding a camera, and dear Molly from Course Development is just there to cheer me on (or watch my fall....).
Long story short....5 crackers in one minute. Are you kidding me? I am a disgrace to my family, my friends, and my company. I will go home and console myself by privately challenging myself to the wine challenge!
P.S. Please don't send any loud emails to me tomorrow morning!
The Seniors' Special ... We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.
"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."
"Then, I'll have to charge you three dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.
"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" my wife asked incredulously.
"YES!!" stated the waitress.
"I'll take the special then," my wife said.
"How do you want your eggs?" the waitress asked.
"Raw and in the shell," my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
DON'T MESS WITH SENIORS!!! They've been around the block more than once!
The Dentist... Have you been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking... surely I cannot look that old? If so, you may enjoy this short story.
While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 30 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.
After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school. "Yes," he replied. "When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In 1971. Why?" "You were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely and then the crazy old fart asked, "What did you teach?"
