Erykahs dimwitted tips of the day!

I have been way out to lunch for the past few days.

Yesterdays tip:

- Always be sure to remove the plastic thingie off your new deoderant... painful.

Todays tip:

- Always remember to close the sun roof after every use, especially if there is a chance of rain.

I have a dimwitted tip too!

Don't walk with your hands in your pockets when there's ice on the ground, no matter how cold it is!

Don't feel bad, Erykah-we all have those moments.

Here's my tip of the day-Shelves don't move. If you bump your head on them one day, the next day, you still can't stand up underneath them without bumping your head. Or the day after that.

Mine would have to be when you can't find your keys anywhere after searching all over, check your pocket. No, the other one.

And I've been searching for an outfit made out of Nerf for a while now...

As an old roommate of mine learned (courtesy of moi ), always make sure the lid on the toilet is in an upright position (and the seat is down) before sitting.

Todays tip!!!!

A hybrid doesnt need to be started just because its quiet! ( not the dog hybrids either... the cars)
I made this mistake a few times today, I would run out and read a meter and come back to the Escape and start it again...
Hybrids DO NOT like that...

WELL HE KEPT LEAVING IT UP!! (I'm talking about the lid, not the seat - I've got this thing about being able to see in the bowl. Plus I have a dog. He doesn't drink from the toilet, but... ew...). He was raised in a family of women and so he sits to pee (says it's just cleaner), but he'd always leave the lid up. Sometimes he'd come out of the bathroom and say "Lid's up" just to irk me. We used to do little things to each other all the time, so everything was like a game. People used to joke that we're like an old married couple (we're still best of friends).

Anyway... One day I put the lid down, and he pee'd all over it (he was half asleep). You'd think that would fix it, but noooooooooo!!!!!!! So I finally got him. One night I snuck into the bathroom after he used it, and I put the SEAT UP. About 3:00 in the morning, he went to sit and I heard a loud crash, followed by an even louder "SPLASH".

Laughter ensued (then I slept with one eye open). But he never did it again! He tried to get me a few times with saran wrap though, but it never worked. I'm too SMRT for that.

lol JECM, those are funny.

I have one: Just because somebody accidentally dares you to try something (human food) that you bought for your dog as a supplement, and it smells good, it doesn't mean you should taste it.

This is a bad memory:

If you are out training your dog for recall using a check cord, and you send your dog off to run so that you can give the recall command, make sure you aren't accidentally standing on the end of the check cord when the dog takes off... (The dog was fine, but hazel ended up on crutches for a compression injury of the ankle...sigh...and we won't talk about the sore butt...shhhhhhh)

lol that's a funny one. When I was in grade 8, I skateboarded home drunk (don't drink and ride! ), and I fell so badly, scraped everything everywhere... I went back the next day to see what it was I might have hit, and it was a manhole.
So yeah, good advice.

My advice: if you're slipping on ice as you're getting into the car, don't grab onto the open door. It moves.

And often slams on you as you fall under the car.

Here's one-check to make sure the lid on the ketchup/mustard/salad dressing is on properly before you shake the bottle.

Michelle's reminded me of one from my youngest brother: never lift weights to impress a girl when you have had too much to drink... he ripped something and later had to have an operation to fix it which had about a 10% success rate.
