Healthy Level of Insanity

A friend sent me this e-mail. I sat in my computer chair and nearly wet my pants from laughing so hard. The funniest thing is that I actually can see myself doing some of these things...

20 Ways To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity

1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice. "Will Nerbil please come to the Customer Service desk of Walmart? Your party is waiting!"

3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it 'In'.

5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

6. In the memo field of all your checks, write 'For smuggling diamonds'.

7. Finish all your sentences with 'In Accordance With The Prophecy'.

8. don't use any punctuation or capital letters

9. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

10. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

11. Specify that your drive-through order is 'To Go'.

12. Sing along at the opera.

13. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.

14. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.

15. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.

16. Have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Bottom.

17. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream 'I Won! I Won!'

18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling, "Run For Your Lives! They're Loose!"

19. Tell your children over dinner, "Due to the poor economy, we are going to have to let one of you go."

20. Next time you go to McDonalds, order a large fries a hamburger a Diet Water and demand a toy (even though you're not getting a happy meal) and pay for it all in Pennies. Demand your change in quarters.

Hey friends, if there are any others you can think of, leave me a comment and tell me what they are! Enjoy your day!

We are headed to McDonalds with a bag full of pennies! "I'll have a diet water please AND I DEMAND A TOY!"
