AD is all clear, and Maxine is curious. ;)


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. Innocent

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? Undecided

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.

  1. See, I was right! Dear Diary posts are the way to go. Look at all your visitors…LOL!~
    Have a great flight ‘home’.

  2. 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: There are no rules just enjoy and pass on if you wish.


  3. 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?

  4. 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 🙂
