Food For Thought - Email from Cynthia
Welcome to my world, where I recently received another one of those food for thought e-mails, this one from Cynthia. I won't use the whole deal, since some of the gems I've heard before and others I suspect I invented. These are the ones that etched a smile on my normally stone face. These are things to make you think.
If four out of five people suffer from diarrhea, does that mean that one enjoys it?
Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?
If love is blind why is lingerie so popular?
Why are wise men and wise guys opposites?
"I am" is the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?
If lawyers are disbarred and clergy men defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and dry cleaners depressed?
If you take an Oriental person and spin him around, does he become disoriented?
Why is it no one ever says it's only a game when their team is winning?
And if it's true that we are here to help others then what are the others here for?
And what ever happened to Preparations A through G? I'd really like to know the answer to that one, since some of my colleagues refer to me only as "H". Is it a nickname? A sign of friendship? a veiled attempt at familiarity? Or is it a reference to an item normally used in an area of one's anatomy that is frequently equated with one's personality traits? I may have to re-evaluate my colleagues and friends, as I see it, I'm H.G. Listak.
