Hi again, everyone. Well here I am at London Heathrow. The security check was quite painless, although I did beep as I went through the scanner, but the lady who checked me over was most pleasant and courteous, unlike the one at MIA. It was very quick and I wasn’t required to have an explosives test this time, so I got off lightly. Hubby of course was perfect.
My sister sent me this fun questionnaire from Maxine, and I thought you might also enjoy it.
“Hello … I have a question “
Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety-one?
If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea… does that mean that one out of five enjoy it ?
Why do croutons come in airtight packages – aren’t they just stale bread to begin with?
If people from Poland are called Poles, then why aren’t people from Holland called Holes ?
If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled ?
Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a race car isn’t called a racist ?
If it’s true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?
If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, then doesn’t it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed ?
Do Lipton Tea employees take ‘coffee breaks?’
What hair colour do they put on the driver’s licenses of bald men? I have wondered this for years.
I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks, so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use; Toothpicks?
Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them ? Why don’t they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail ?
Is it true that you never really learn to swear until you learn to drive ?
If a cow laughed, would milk come out of her nose ?
And last but by no means least, as income tax time approaches, did you ever notice that when you put the two words ‘The ‘ and ‘IRS’ together, it spells ‘THEIRS‘?
Well that was an exercise in patience, putting in all those little Maxines, but what else is there to do whilst waiting for hours before having the dubious pleasure of a ten hour overnight flight?
Have a great day tomorrow everyone. I will be too busy unpacking, phoning friends and family, and shopping for groceries, to do much blogging.
Chat again soon.
I was looking to see if you had replied to my comment, but couldn’t find it. Then I remembered LD …
😉 Which is more than the new editor seems to do. She must be extremely part time.
See, I was right! Dear Diary posts are the way to go. Look at all your visitors…LOL!~
Have a great flight ‘home’.
Thanks, Ark. I seem to have a winning recipe with my “Dear diary” formula. 😉
Don’t fix what ain’t broke!
Sorry I am late with this. I am trying to catch up after being away for a few days. I love your post and I would like to pass on the Just Kidding Award for you to pick up here: http://wp.me/p23TG1-tZ There are no rules just enjoy and pass on if you wish.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
So glad about that, Adee. Sleep tight new. 😉 xxx
I so enjoyed these, AD. They have made my otherwise boring day much brighter. Thank you. xxx
Thanks, sidey. It’s good to be back. 😉
She is that. I’ve never met anyone quite like her. My sister comes close though. 😉
Maxine is hilarious! It be awesome to sit next to her on a plane 😉
Like the one about the IRS 😉 Travel safe!
Thanks so much, Son. I’m back in SA now. 😉
is ‘none’ a colour?
and how about the men who shave their heads, do you keep them in jail till it grows out to check the colour?
Now there’s another good question, sidey. 😉
some very pertinent questions there…what do you chinese mothers feed their children with? hmmmm
You made me look it up on Google. 😉 I had to know. They use little spoons and only teach the kids to use chopsticks when they are about 4 or 5.
another mystery solved!
Lol! Worth pondering 🙂 Do admire your patience!
Hahaha. Well, I had not a lot else to occupy my time with. 😉
LOL @ Maxine! Excellent questions! I hope you had a pleasant flight! Welcome back!
LOL @ Maxine!! I hope you had a pleasant flight!
Yes we did have a very pleasant flight, PPD. I even got some sleep. 😉 xxx

Hahaha … glad you got through relatively smoothly and thanks for making us smile. 😀
You’re welcome, ft. Glad you liked the maxine. 😉
LOL! I love Maxine! Thanks for the smile hon. 🙂
Glad you enjoyed, Sonel. 😉 xxx
I think Maxine and I would make a perfect match. We ponder the same things. but then she is quite a rogue, isn’t she ? Happy home coming 🙂
I think Maxine would give even you a run for your money, Rogue. 😉
At least you got through without too much trouble 😉
Have a safe flight AD – see you when you get back home!!
Thanks, 68. Home and dry now. 😉
lol @ Maxine!
Well, at least they didnt check you for explosives ad 🙂
Thanks, Hopestar. Yes it was a major improvement on the last lot. 😉 Hugs xx
Thanks, annie. So do I. 😉
