BORED DOES WONDERS ...

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I ABSOLUTELY HATE SITTING AROUND LIKE THIS. SINCE THEY WON'T LET ME WALK AROUND MUCH (NO MORE THAN 2,000 STEPS A DAY) I HAVE HAD TO FIND A NEW SOURCE OF ENTERTAINMENT AND EXERCISE. SO I DECIDED TO HAUL MYSELF DOWN TO THE LOBBY AND SIT AND PLAY A LITTLE GAME. AS PEOPLE CAME THROUGH THE LOBBY - RESIDENTS OR VISITORS - I TRIED TO GUESS WHAT THEY HAD DONE FOR A LIVING AND WHAT THEY LOOKED LIKE WHEN THEY WERE REALLY YOUNG. OF COURSE THIS IS NO FUN TO DO ALONE, SO I BROUGHT THE SWEET LADY FROM UPSTAIRS THAT IS DYING OF LIVER CANCER.

WE HAD A BALL! OF COURSE, THERE WAS THE MYRIAD OF TEENAGERS THAT INSIST ON GOING AROUND IN SHORTS WITH NO SOCKS OR JACKETS WHEN IT IS 20 DEGREES OUTSIDE. IT IS VERY HARD TO TRY TO PREDICT, BUT WE GUESSED WHAT WE THOUGHT THEY WOULD BE WHEN THEY WERE GROWN-UPS. THERE WAS ONLY ONE THAT WE TOTALLY AGREED ON. HE WAS GORGEOUS. I MEAN DROP DEAD DROOL OVER YOURSELF CUTE! WE DECIDED THAT HE MUST, ABSOLUTELY MUST, BE THE NEXT "MAGIC MIKE".

THERE WAS A MAN THAT LOOKED VERY CASUAL AND CAME IN CARRYING GROCERIES FOR A RESIDENT. WE GUESSED THAT HE WAS PROBABLY A TEACHER OR SOME KIND. HE JUST LOOKED THE PART. WHEN HE LEFT I ASKED HIM. HE WAS A PASTOR AT A LOCAL CHURCH. NOT A BAD GUESS. I SUPPOSE YOU COULD CONSIDER HIM A TEACHER.

THEN THERE WAS THE LADY WITH HER NOSE STUCK SO FAR IN THE AIR THAT I THOUGHT AN ICICLE WOULD FALL AND STICK HER IN THE NOSE. WE GUESSED THAT SHE HAD GROWN UP POOR AND MARRIED MONEY. WHEN SHE LEFT, I ASKED HER WHAT SHE DID FOR A LIVING. SHE WAS THE ALUMNI DIRECTOR AT THE UNIVERSITY. OOPS!

AND THEN THERE WAS THE GUY THAT STILL LOOKED LIKE A HUNK AT ABOUT 50 YEARS OLD. HIS BODY WAS ROCK HARD BUT HE WAS WELL DRESSED. HE GUESSED HIM TO BE THE OWNER OF A CONSTRUCTION COMPANY. OF COURSE, I ASKED HIM. THIS ONE!
THIS ONE REALLY SHOCKED ME. HE MODELS UNDERWEAR IN CATALOGS! OMG!

I HAD TO RUN UPSTAIRS (LIMP QUICKLY) AND CHECK OUT EVERY CATALOG WE HAD IN THE HOUSE. I COULDN'T FIND HIM. BUT THEN THE NEWSPAPER CAME TODAY AND ONE OF THE LOCAL STORE HAD AN AD IN THE PAPER AND THERE HE WAS! YES! IN ALL THE GLORY OF HIS "TIGHTIE WHITIES."

I DON'T KNOW HOW SAFE IT IS TO PLAY THIS GAME, BUT IT SURE IS FUN! THE TRICK IS TO HAVE THE GUTS TO ACTUALLY ASK THE PEOPLE YOU ARE GUESSING ABOUT. WE ALL KNOW THAT I HAVE NEVER BEEN LOW IN THE GUTS DEPARTMENT. AT LEAST IT MADE ME SMILE AND IT BROKE UP THE DAY FOR BOTH OF US.

    What a fun way to pass the day. I see people go by sometimes when I am at the store and wonder what they do.
Have a great day. Pam

    I read your post or blog.

That was interesting and I liked how you included that lady who has cancer and also

how bold you were to ask each one what they did. The surprises you got knowing of the occupations and the guy that modeled the whites. And oh yes the Hunk.

I bet it was fun. Great way to pass the time away you and the lady.

Your a interesting lady.

    Hi Erin, It does sound like a fun guessing game and I would have liked to have seen those 2 good looking guys, sigh. It's harmless and fun. I've always liked doing this but never had the guts to ask anyone if I was right--good for you to ask them and know the answer. I'm glad you included your sick friend in the fun as that must have been great fun for her to get out and do something interesting.

Hugs & Love,

Jill

    Whatever it takes, Erin! Besides, it is harmless fun and helps to pass the time. I'll bet your friend loved it since she probably doesn't get to do too much that is fun these days! Good work!! Love, Jeannie

    ERIN, YOU AND MY DAD WOULD GET ALONG JUST FINE. WHEN HE AND MOM WOULD COME FOR A VISIT, SOME TIMES SHE WOULD WANT TO GOT TO THE MALL. DAD WOULD GO SIT SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE AND "PEOPLE" WATCH. HE WOULD PRETTY MUCH DO WHAT YOU DID. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD A GREAT TIME AND I BET YOUR NEIGHBOR REALLY ENJOYED HERSELF. BLESS YOU FOR INCLUDING HER.

HUGS...MARY ANNE

    Listen, you do what you can to be happy. If this does it for you honey, then so be it. I'd rather be looking for pictures "with" the "tightie, whities" guy. lol

    What fun! I love to go shopping and sometimes sit on the bench at the grocery store imagining what people do as well. I've never asked them! Good for you on your boldness. Thanks for sharing!

    Isn't it great to get to a stage in your life when you can be bold, assertive in fun, and amuse yourself at the same time. And how nice of you to invite your companion to have fun as well. bet she hadn't had that much fun in ages! emoticon emoticon emoticon
