Random Questions

I get a lot of junk email, don't you? Some of it is scams saying they are holding my inheritance in a bank in some foreign country I've never heard of, and I'm supposed to supply basic information to a person with a yahoo address so they can pay it to me. I've got enough sense to know that giving anyone basic information is going to allow them to clean all of my $42 out of my bank account.

Then I get stuff from 'friends' that say after you read this, send it to X number of other people including myself and I'll know you are a true friend.

Or the ones that have a prayer and some scripture that say if you love Jesus you will keep this message going, and if you don't forward it you don't love Jesus. I don't think whether I forward an email determines my love for Jesus.

So, I'm a chain breaker! Sue me!

I always read them, I just don't forward. But the other day I got one that as I read it, it brought back memories, so I'm going to put a few of the questions here. Answer them if you wish, I don't need to know those answers, but if any of them strike a familiar chord, then the time to put them in will have been worth it.

Have you ever:
( ) Gone on a blind date
( ) Skipped School
( ) Watched someone die
( ) Been lost
( ) Swam in the ocean
( ) Cried yourself to sleep
( ) Played Cops and Robbers
( ) Recently colored with crayons
( ) Sang Karaoke
( ) Paid for your meal with coins
( ) Done something you told yourself you'd never do

Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday. Do something silly. Make someone laugh.

I could check off all but two.
I hate the emails that people forward that start off with "read this, it made me cry".......why would I want to read something that is going to make me cry?
I hope you have a good day, I was up early this morning too.

I'm a chain breaker too. And a frequent REPLY ALL with a link to Snopes.com when people send out the ones they think are true, that aren't. LOL

But when forwards are good, I copy and paste the message without all the 'forward this or . . .' parts and send it to those I think might enjoy it.

So I'll answer yours . . .

Wow - I think I'll go play cops and robbers with my kids tonight so I can finish out this list!!

Apparently my sister isn't ready to get up this morning. I'm thinking of going home to play cops and robbers. I want to be the robber! The cop part sounds boring. Then I'm going to color you a picture while I sit in my cell. Then I'll probably cry myself to sleep because you won't come bail me out, but they'll let me out early if I can get my hands on a karoke machine because, geesh, me singing would be tragic!

I guess you can say I "played" cops and robbers for nearly 22 years, does that count? But I also played it at school just a month ago when I substituted for a
2nd grade teacher!! It was still fun. I didn't ever skip school till I went to college, and then I don't consider it skipping because they didn't care if you were there or not. But I was mostly there. I have not watched someone die, but was there after they killed him and brought him back to life. And I think I have done most of the rest of them, not really well, but I have done them. Isn't life great!!!????

I'm not a good email buddy, either! I never forward on stuff and I rarely read junk/joke emails.

I'm a chain breaker too.... so I suppose I'm not a good friend and I suppose some might think that I don't love Jesus because I didn't forward their message? OH well? that's between He and I? Right??LOL

Have you ever seen this link?

I've been thinking of sending it to anyone who sends me JUNK!

Sage said...

I have never been able to figure out how me forwarding a stupid email would prove that I love Jesus. Or the USA. Or my friends. Or whatever. I hit delete. I'll open something and if the first words are "you gotta read this!" or "This made me cry!" or "let satan stop this one!" and on and on, I just hit delete. What a waste. If you want to keep in touch with me then write a personal note, don't send me some garbage.

You hit on one of my pet peeves, can you tell?!

I was up way too early this morning.....mom's brain biopsy.
