24 Undeniable 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?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to
prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and
you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know
what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in
a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but
I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about
1 .7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874
and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for
men to realize that their brain is also important.

4. if you line up the fitted ends...

let's see how to explain.

I put my fingers in the corner of the stitched seam and then fold it over
onto the other...I guess I'm right handed, so I would fold the right over/onto the left
so that....

oh hell.


this guy does it a little different from me, but same result...

I don't need a bed or a table...i can do this standing at my dryer.
Yes. I'm talented.

8. I have done it that way for many, many years.

I am surprised that there are people who do not know how to fold a fitted sheet. When I was first married (which is before any of you were even born), a next door neighbor taught me.

9. #6: If you write a lot by hand, cursive is MUCH easier on the hand muscles

than block printing is. Maybe it's no longer relevant because of computers and the like, but I never would have gotten through college if I'd had to take notes in block printing.

11. #11 is bad when you are a teacher

and it strikes before you've taught your last class of the day.

13. With ya on everything with 1 possible exception

4k TV is coming and I want in. I'm just not sure if Blu-Ray will require a new player - they are going to work up some codecs and extensions so BD can physically hold the content but I;m not clear on whether or not existing players will handle it. Not to worry though, my current BD player is my PS3 so if I gotta get a stand-alone for 4k I'll do it.

21. Last one pays for all!

Reminds me of the truism: if the world were rational, men would ride sidesaddle.
