A Little Friday Science

Everyone up for an experiment today? Great. You can do this with common office supplies so here's what you'll need:

1 box pushpins
2 pens (blue, ballpoint if possible)
1 filing cabinet
1 roll of scotch tape

First, open the box of pushpins and swallow them all making sure that you scratch as much of your throat as possible. Then jam the pens in your ears and tape your eyelids almost - but not quite - closed. For the grand finale, open one of your filing cabinet drawers, insert your head and close quickly. There! Now you feel like I do this morning! But you know what? It doesn't really bother me. Because its Friday!!!

Did you catch the plague? Sounds decidedly unpleasant.
Here's hoping Saturday is much, much better than Friday.

I stopped at the pushpins. Actually, I must have done that in the middle of the night because I woke up with a screaming sore throat! I'm going home to throw away all my office supplies now...

Feel better! Think I'm going to pass on the game though.

aww it seems that pushpin sickness is going around. My sister has it. I can only hope that I'm not next, i've done pretty well about staying cold and flu free this winter

Feel better soon!

Aw, I thought you'd started a new tradition: Arts & Crafts Friday!

Have a good one anyway, Haiku Funk Master Jive.

Feel better bud, I'm just getting over my experiment with sharp things now.

Posted by: zeno at March 5, 2004 9:38 AM

What a bummer! I think that calls for the rest of the day off...hope you feel better soon!

Push pins? Dude....

Posted by: yvonne at March 5, 2004 11:02 AM

Always the martyr, aren't you, Chris?!? LOL

Regardless of how crappy of a day you're having, as you said, it is FRIDAY- and that makes EVERYTHING better!!!

Dude, I'm sorry I had no drunk commentary for you last night. But here is hangover commentary.

I will pay cash money for an Egg McMuffin right now. Cottage cheese and peaches was NOT a good idea. I should have called out sick, for real. I can't stop thinking in haiku. My head is hurty now.

Posted by: tiffanie at March 5, 2004 11:17 AM

I had a friend in college who'd eat tacks when he was drunk.

Seriously scary. Don't encourage OCD. Heheh.
