Travel Plans

Good old FOAF – that’s Friend Of A Friend – has come to my rescue yet again while my brain (what’s left of it) gets rejuvenated:

I have been in many places but I’ve never been in Kahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Kahoots with  someone. I’ve also never been in Cognito.  I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there thanks to my spouse, children,  friends, family and work. I would like to go to Conclusions but you have to  jump and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.  I’ve been in Flexible but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I’m in Capable and I go there more often as I’m getting older. One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense.  It really gets the adrenalin flowing and  pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent but I don’t remember what country I was in.  It’s an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.

Imponderables

To lighten your mind (translation: waste your time) after a seemingly endless election campaign season in the US, ponder on these imponderables:

  • If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren’t people from Holland called Holes?
  • Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?
  • If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?
  • If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?
  • Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
  • When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?

  • Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?
  • Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

  • “I am” is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language.  Could it be that “I do” is the longest sentence?

  • What hair color do they put on the driver’s licenses of bald men?
  • Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don’t they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so that mail carriers can look for them while they deliver the mail?
  • You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.
  • No one ever says “It’s only a game” when their team is winning.
