I sure hope you can see my tongue-in-cheek.

Hi Beechie,

I have another wonderful entertaining tip you might like. I cannot take credit for it though.

I read this in a book by Amy Sedaris, titled "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence."

Amy says when unexpected guests arrive and you have nothing on hand to serve them, just chew up crackers and spit them on other crackers.

You're welcome.

Ah, I needed a good gagging today. I think it was David Letterman who had a joke years ago about scraping dropped toothpaste out of the sink to use as dinner mints.

Well there is no sense in being a bad behaviorist unless you can act like one and there is no sense in acting like one unless you believe there is justification

Again, I absolutely am void of any bad behaviors

This is really upsetting my strong stomach.

I really like dirty jokes better.

Okay, okay. I was walking behind Eisenhower and saw about 150 cigarette butts, all of the same brand (Marlboro lights), on the ground. It took me a while to figure it out, but it appears someone who is there on a regular basis is smoking just outside the back door in a little walled off patio area then flicking the cigarette butts over the wall into the bushes. Apparently they've been doing this for awhile.

Anyway, I took one of my dog poop bags and picked up all the cigarette butts and put them in the bag. Then I tied a knot in the bag and threw it back over the wall.

You mean sort of like a "spatay pate"?

If they remained behind the door too long then the janitor got cleaned.



I have absolutely no bad behaviors

I'm fastidious about cleanliness in the hospitals I used to run. If I found a cigarette butt someplace I would date it with a pen and then monitor how long it took to disappear, especially in stairwells. After 3 days, if it had not disappeared, the environmental services director and I made rounds - it was not a happy event. Sometime maybe I'll share my testing secrets for other areas and patient rooms.

Here's one for you. I love to do this at a party attended by friends but hosted by a couple we've just met. I usually ask where the washroom is and when I'm ready to come back out I open the door and yell out "can I get a plunger in here". I find it best to get to know the newbies as soon as possible.

On New Year's Day we had grown kids and grandkids in town.

Our 2 daughters and I decided to start the year off with a long walk. We headed east on Pinellas up to Buena Vista, up to 466A, East on 466A to Morse, turned south and headed back to Pinellas.

Now we didn't map this "little walk" and by the time we got to Bradenton Rec center I was about to die. We had covered 5 miles!!

I saw my golf cart at Bradenton and knew the guys and grandkids were in the pool. As we approached the parking lot our 35 yr old son got in my golf cart to go home for something they forgot. We waved him over and I asked if he'd give me a ride. He laughed and told me we were so close to finishing our walk I should just walk on home. (parent/ child reversal!)

As he pulled out of Bradenton I vigorously, aggressively, gave him a frantic, waving 1 finger salute!! To my horror the golf cart passing by was not him....but some nice little couple with a look of horror on their faces.

I thought I would die!! The girls and our son, who was following that cart out of the lot, had the laugh of their lives. I will never live that down!

But if it was you, please know that I do not shoot the bird at random strangers.

There, it is off my chest. I feel so much better!!

I love this thread. Especially Beechie's posts.

P.S. I often order food from restaurants and put it in my own serving dishes.
If people say it's yummy, I say I made it myself.
