    At the Subway drive-thru today…

    The Subway employee starts by asking me “How’s your day going?”

    My reply was “Very good. And yours?”

    In a monotone voice with a hint of sarcasm he replied “Another day in paradise.”

    It took me a moment to stop laughing before I could place my order.

    Going thru Security at McCarran this morning, my laptop briefcase gets singled-out after x-ray for special screening... the fella seems nice enough and starts taking stuff out. He pulls out a large wallet, then my smaller "travel" wallet and then my business-card holder (which looks like a small wallet). He say's, "why do you need so many wallets?" I say, I didn't realize there was a limit, trying not to be a smart-ass, I start to explain about a travel wallet... he doesn't care... he pulls out another thing that's in the bottom and says, "what's this?" I say, "something that plugs in the wall that charges something..." He say's what? I say, "I dunno, it's been in there forever, I forgot what it charges... says Bose on the side of it, so something Bose." He puts it down and pulls out a handful of pens and then looks at me... I say, "what? is there a limit on pens?" He laughs... then says, "you sure gotta lot of stuff in here." I said, I didn't know it was gonna be inventoried, sorry... I haven't cleaned it out in awhile."

    He then decides he's seen everything and needs to re-run it thru... turns out it was the #1 DAD "thing" on my key-chain that my daughter gave me 10 years ago. The #1 looked like a knife to the young girl running the scanner. We both laughed and it sent me on my way... I gotta clean out my briefcase.

    A friend from way way back contacted me through facebook. So we did some catching up and reminiscing.

    Apparently I did some rather "humorous" things in high school.

    So many things!
    But what put a real smile on my face is when the homeless man was sitting down, lost in thought I suppose and I rolled down my window and quietly asked if he needed some change. He said yea, oh yea got up and very politely and nicely said thank you mam, have a nice day.
    It was very strange - almost as if a connection was made.

    Not laugh per se but it made my day!

    Not a damn thing-----until I saw that GIF where that gal busted through that trampoline.
    Not being ugly because I am bigger than her, but you aren't going to catch my big butt on a trampoline!

    My office manager took a call today from a new tax client. She usually defers all tax calls to me, but since I was busy she tried to answer this woman's questions herself. She was being so professional and doing such a great job, until I heard her say "...be sure to bring in your 2011 10WD40 ". :confused:

    One of my company's other divisions sent some product to our division to warehouse as they were out of space, and they charged the freight collect to my division. I politely wrote an E-mail to the VP of that division asking if it was an error, and asking that if we sell their product off our shelves, who should pay that outbound freight.

    That division's VP wrote a complete non-sequitor response, as if he interpreted my E-mail to second guess why the freight was sent up here. It's as if I said "The sky is blue" and he responded with "Hockey has three periods".

    My VP, upon seeing the other guy's response responded to me "Next time write it in crayon".

    OK, it may not seem funny on a Vegas message board, but as my head was processing "What an idiot", I see my boss's crayon comment and I absolutely belly laughed.

    When I get down on my hands + knees --
    hide behind the sofa --
    and slap my hands down on the rug + grunt ---
    My 14 month old son slowly walks over to peer around the
    sofa - so
    he can see me....
    I charge him....
    and he screams with glee !!.... as his chubby , little legs
    bounce up + down to run away.
    He's laughing the whole time !

    I had a buddy who asked me how to hand the "K-9 Form" he received from a partnership interest his wife inherited. I told him leave the income off and if he gets audited tell the IRS his dog ate it.
