Old guy born and raised in Iowa, now living in South-central Texas. Spent most of my life trying to figure out the meaning of life, and now that I have an answer that satisfies me, trying to get it written down before my time's up.

    Speaking of staring,

    A wife is frying eggs for her husband in the morning. Suddenly the husband appears behind the wife’s back and says:

    “Careful, CAREFUL, put more fat in the pan! You’re frying too many at a time. TOO MANY! Flip them! FLIP THEM! Come on! Put more fat in there. Oh dear lord. How are you gonna make space for the fat now, look, they’re sticking to the pan! Careful! Careful now! You never listen to me when I cook! NEVER! Flip them over already. HURRY! ARE YOU CRAZY? Take it easy! EASY! Nooo, don’t forget the salt. Put salt on them, SALT!”

    The wife stares at her husband:

    “What’s wrong with you? You think I can’t fry a few eggs?”

    The husband answers calmly:

    “I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m driving.”

    I bet those stares in the Twilight saga were “meaningful gazes”, or some such thing.

    And I know I’ve mentioned this before, but a man in Texas on a canoe race died despite drinking plenty of water as the water did not contain electrolytes, which he sweated away in the hot weather.

    When I first visited Phoenix in 1966, I experienced the same thing. Fortunately I wasn’t doing any hard exercise and found the water fountains before somebody had to scrape me off the pavement.

    My grandmother had our genealogy traced and the researcher found we’re descendants of Charlemagne (the French Emperor from the 9th Century). Charlemagne had had his genealogy done and the researcher traced his lineage back to Adam and Eve.

    However, “in 2013, geneticists Peter Ralph and Graham Coop showed that all Europeans are descended from exactly the same people. Basically, everyone alive in the ninth century who left descendants is the ancestor of every living European today, including Charlemagne, Drogo, Pippin and Hugh.”

    Greetings, cousins.

    The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large tray of pizza slices. The nun had posted a sign on the pizza tray, “Take only one. God is watching.”

    Further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

    One child whispered to another, “Take all you want. God is watching the pizza.”

    Time to quit. I just told Mrs. Fogwhistle that her cup of pizza was ready.

    A company, feeling it was time for a shake-up, hires a new CEO. This new boss is determined to rid the company of all slackers.

    On a tour of the facilities, the CEO notices a guy leaning on a wall. Everyone else in the room is working, and he thinks this is his chance to show everyone he means business!

    The CEO, walks up the guy and asks “How much money do you make a week?”

    Undaunted, the young fellow looks at him and replies, “I make $200.00 a week. Why?”

    The CEO then hands the guy $200 in cash and screams “Here’s a week’s pay, now GET OUT and don’t come back!”

    Feeling pretty good about his first firing, the CEO looks around the room and asks “Anyone know what that slacker did here?”

    With an uncontrollable grin, one of the other workers, with back turned to the CEO pipes up “Pizza delivery guy”.
