Maybe they should re-think this one.

Last week, my husband stumbled upon possibly the worst invention in the history of mankind.

Let me tell you the story.

My dear, smart, hard-working husband was in a meeting at work. While someone else was speaking, my husband was fiddling with a dry-erase marker, pushing the cap on and off. He noticed the marker had an appealing apple scent, so he gave it a couple good whiffs.

This is the point when his participation decreased significantly, because he was high.

I couldn't stop laughing when he told me the story, picturing my young professional husband in a corner sniffing markers. He said it wasn't quite like that and that I have nothing to be embarrased about.

He said he felt sick all day and he was still a little light-headed when he came home.

So why would someone think this is a good idea? I have lots of good ideas. In fact, I am going to be a millionare someday with one of my good ideas... wait and see! My ideas are GOOD for you and won't even get you fired!

Imagine if these were in a classroom at a high school and word got out. Oh my, I can just see some of my old students now.

But I think they might be quite enjoyable :)

I've seen these before, and they do smell good. No, I don't sniff markers! hehe I am a bit surprised it only took a could wiffs to make him high, though! I can see Dave now...

OHMYGOSH. Your blog is hysterical. I love the David Archuleta post. Doesn't make me feel like the biggest loser for liking Matlock. You run with the 12 year olds, I hobble around with the 80 year olds.... But at least I'll be ready for retirement, life insurance, walk-in baths, and dentures when the time comes. I'm studying up now. And the Christmas post... it's true. I have a hard time remembering specific gifts I got, but I can go on and on about my family traditions.

And no worries about blog stalking... rest assured, you are in VERY good company (with me). I'm pumped that you blog. Without it, the 30 feet to your house makes us virtual strangers. :D Don't worry.... I also email my co-worker sitting right next to me while I'm at work to see he's ready for lunch yet. It's just how I roll. Check out Carrie/KC's blog too. If you haven't already found it, they are on my blog list (Open the Dome).

And now I'm going to bring this never-ending comment to an end. :)
