I can only assume this is a sign of extraordinary intelligence.
Wait until next April Fool's Day and switch them back.

I agree with both statements whole heartedly!

Because I do some (I do most in a rented kitchen) professional cooking from my home we have had to baracade the dogs from the kitchen so I don't have the luxury of using them as vacuum cleaners. But they do a good job in the office when we drop crumbs on the floor!

Andy, I just guffawed when I read that. I'm glad it didn't wake up the kids! Thanks for sharing!

Every night, I forget my medications until it's time to go to bed. I know that if I take them an hour earlier, I would be asleep in a few minutes. As it is, I for get and lay in bed for an hour before I even get sleepy.

Every night, I get my pillows and lay down on the couch to watch a movie I've DVR'ed. AND every night, I always fall asleep. Sometimes it takes me 4 tries to get through a movie. I know I'm going to fall asleep, but that doesn't matter, I go through the same routine anyway. I'll never learn.

I have a TV in my bedroom but do I watch it in there? Nooo....the angle is better in the living room, I guess.

Cheryl you'd fall asleep even if you watched your movie on a bedroom TV. Only difference is that you wouldn't have to get up and go to bed after you turn off the TV set.

My advice is that you should probably watch movies in the daytime/afternoon, like on weekends. I know I'd never last through an evening movie either...

The most foolish thing I do often is always different. One day, I put my tie on before going to work, in the dark. I finished getting dressed, forgot that I was already wearing a tie, and put on another one. I use the kind of ties that I have to tie, and so you'd think I'd have felt the first one. But nope, instead, I went to work with two ties on. That was years ago and it's still legendary in the workshop. Oh, and I have so many more.

And yes, Andy, it's true. It's a sign of hyper-intelligence. In the words of a famous C&W song, "That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it."

Hi Greg - I know...I do watch TV sometimes during the day, but I'm usually busy doing other stuff. Actually, half the time that's the main reason I watch TV at night, is to fall asleep... Occasionally though, there's something I find worth watching and go to sleep anyway, lol....old habits die hard, I guess....

Two ties!!

A teacher friend, now unfortunately deceased, showed up at school with one black and one navy shoe. She too dressed in the dark. Thankfully she taught 2nd grade, and nobody else noticed. I wouldn't have either, but she pointed it out to me.

And her hubby was the principal.
