I got caught in a downpour yesterday before I made it into a store. The clerk asked me if I got rained on, I said "Nope, just been walking my fish".

Nope. An old-timer's idea of fun is to watch you youngsters do the same stupid stuff we did with pretty much the same results.

No, it's just us older people have realized it's a whole lot funnier when it's someone else in pain from a bad case of 'stupid'.

But he says he has his Dad's "single shot .22 rifle" in his garage and he's going to take it to the local forest preserves.....within city limits......and shoot it. I told him that was illegal on several different levels and he said "No one's going to find out. I'm going to go early in the morning when no one is there." I told him not to do it, not only could he hurt someone but if he gets caught he may never be able to own a firearm again. He said "No one's going to catch me. I'll let you know how it goes." It's raining this morning so he won't do it today but someday in the very near future, this otherwise intelligent man is going to take his gun to the forest preserves and shoot it.

Not only that, I have offered many times to take him shooting at the range, where it's legal and you know no one is behind what you're shooting at, but he's always too busy to go.
Don't you enjoy it when someone actually is capable to smart themselves right into stupid?

It's only stupid if I get hurt or arrested. So... I guess it's stupid most of the time.

-I'm regretting not buying a soda before work, though bad for my health, I'm a wee bit tired.
-Things people drive these days... Ford Rangers are the ultimate truck blasphemy.
Where the heck did I park... oh nvm.

Random 'nough?

WOC- stop by the drugstore, and buy the village idjit an Old Spice "soap on a rope". When he asks what its for, tell him he will need it in the Cook Cty slammer- but you will try to send him a carton of menthols a week.

I beg your pardon!! I'm 'old' and after getting through school, including college, married, divorced, raising my children on my own, working like a mule to get by, sweating out how I'm going to pay my bills and survive, here I am, at the 'old age' that I am, JUST NOW STARTING TO HAVE FUN. I am doing things I would have never dreamed I would do............and I'm lovin' it!!
