Silly stuff you love

i love post-it's, pencils, notebooks, paper shredders, copiers, new socks, someone who gives you toilet paper when your roll is empty at your public restroom, finding $$$$$ when you only were looking to find your keys, kleenex........

Toys like the toy cat that looked kinda real and purred,padded like a cat and drank from a bottle etc.2 weeks later I sent it to HBs grand daughter.Fart boxes ,fake big snakes and spiders and other gags.My favorite trick is to get a Kiwi fruit and then pretend theres a mouse in the kitchen.I will go Oh my God did you see that mouse it went over there so when a women goes over there and bends over looking for the mouse Im behind her and roll that Kiwi between her legs from the back and I start screaming .You should see how high they jump because you already set them up. Its a great one because at first glance they really think its a mouse.

I like trying (smelling) new incense flavors... not sure how else to refer to it... aromas? I also like trying new bubble bath or bath salts, anything to pamper myself from time to time!

I thought we were talking about silly stuff like things that you may be too mature to enjoy but still do like a kid.

Why do you think bubble baths are silly or incence(sp?)I would think those are luxuries and a great way to relax.

Well, I guess I don't know many people my age that enjoy incense. It is not like I go to anyone's house and they have them burning. Now bubble bath... it has the notion of being kid like, but I am sure it is a luxury enjoyed by both young and old. I always think of Mr. Bubble!!! LOL! So yea, it seems silly to me when I am in the tub puttin bubbles on my head!!

I like teeny-bopper/girlie girl shows (Sabrina, Hannah Montana, etc.) and movies (13 Going on 30, etc.).

I like to walk barefoot on a big piece of cardboard (Try it--kind of like popping packaging bubbles, which I also like to do).

I like to color (When little kids ask me to color with them they think I am so good at it--lol. I'm not artistic but kids think I am!).

I like to swing on playground swings. (I read an article once that said that a lot of people are putting adult sized swingsets in their back yards!).

When no one is around I like to make up silly songs and sing them. Also when no one is around I talk silly and sing silly songs to the dog and cats.

While I do read adult fare, I like to read kids' books now and then.

And for a food related silly thing, I sometimes eat pudding or yogurt by dipping my spoon quickly into the pudding or yogurt (holding the spoon vertically) so that it lasts a long time.

I like to watch Sponge Bob, color and play Jacks with the grand kids. I would love to hopscotch and jumprope too. (but I don't think the old bones will let me). I also have more post notes and paper clips than I know what to do with. My 5 children can divide them up when I am gone.

In terms of food, corn dogs. Who woulda thunk that deep frying a dog in corn meal dough would taste that good?

The sillliest food I have heard about, but have never found, is a deep fried battered Mars bar.
