PONDERISMS


I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.

Life is sexually transmitted.

Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?

Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.


All of us could take a lesson from the weather, as it pays no attention to criticism.

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal..

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Why does your OB-GYN leave the room when you get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway?

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?



My granddaughter has been with us since last Saturday and it has cut back the amount of time I can spend on the computer; hence the email posts. Today we went to see "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaur". It is a really cute movie with lots of action, just like the first two Ice Age movies. Sequels often disappoint, but this one was pretty good.

This is my youngest granddaughter - she will be ten in five months - and the best behaved of the four girls, and definitely better behaved than the five boys (although they are all good kids). It has been a joy to have her here, and I just hope she hasn't been too bored with the old folks. She's been so agreeable that it's almost scary! I'm used to kids who balk at taking showers and brushing their teeth - not ones who do it before you ask - and girls who want to be taken shopping and have everything they see bought for them. Not this one; even at the outlets in Myrtle Beach, she said she didn't need anything. Can you believe it? She also watched "So You Think You Can Dance" with me and liked it!
Anyway, when she goes home I can get more time to read your posts and comment. See you soon.

I thought it was a fact that pushing the elevator button made it arrive sooner... it doesn't? OH! NO!

Your granddaughter sounds absolutely gorgeous! I'm hoping to see something of my great granddaughter as she grows up (only 3 months so far!)

There were some Ponderisms here that I had not heard before. Guess I am not as old as I thought. Granchdildren are a great way to plan a day.

"In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.."

In the 60's we used to say," Let's mix LSD and the Birth Control pill together so we can take a trip without the kids.....
