Just Sitting in the Library Minding My Own Business

#1 and I were at the library tonight.  I could tell she was done with her work because while I was sweating away over financial equations (they really blow my mind--very time consuming for me), I hear her giggling from the chair across from me.

I couldn't stand that she was having so much fun, so I ask her, "What are you doing?"  She replies, "Are you on facebook?" 

Huh?  Am I on facebook?  Does the anguished look on my face look like I'm on facebook?  Heavens NO!  I'm not on facebook. 

So, I replied, "No." 

She said, "Go to facebook.  I'll send it to you."

So, I drag myself out of the personal finance website and head over to facebook.  Here's what she sent me:
Annoying things to do on an elevator
1) STAND silent and motionless in the corner facing the wall without getting off.

2) GREET everyone with a warm handshake and ask him or her to call you Admiral.
3) MEOW occasionally.

4) STARE At another passenger for a while. Then announce in horror: "You're one of THEM" - and back away slowly

5) SAY -DING at each floor.

6) MAKE explosion noises when anyone presses a button.

7) STARE, grinning at another passenger for a while, then announce: "I have new socks on."

8) DRAW a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers: "This is my personal space."

9) WHEN there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder, then pretend it wasn't you.

10) DROP a pen and wail until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream: "That's mine!"

11) CALL out "Group hug" then enforce it

12.) talk on your cell phone in a Jersey Accent

This is what I was laughing about... I can imagine myself doing them :)
After reading this, I persuaded her that the library elevator would be a great place to try these out.  Only one problem, the library only has two floors.  Most of the people use the stairs.  We pushed the button, walked straight to the corner (each of us in our own) and proceeded down to the first floor facing the corners.  No one got in, and we weren't willing to wait around, so we got out.  DARN IT!

Anyway, thought these were worth a good chuckle.  Hope they made you laugh like they did me.

Toooo fun! I could see myself doing those back in the day.

What if the elevator is empty but you are talking on your cell phone you started talking in a jersey accent. And stopped when you got off. Would you notice if someone did that to you?

Humorous! I would've loved to hear what people thought if someone DID get on the elevator. You sound like a fun mom.

I am so glad you linked this up to the NOBH!! I read this on FB a couple nights ago and was cracking up. My hubby was reading at the time and warned me not to interrupt him. I kept laughing and looking back at him and he finally gave in and I read a couple to him. Not sure why he didn't find them as funny as me...lol! Anyways, welcome to NOBH and hope you come back to link some more. I'm following you now too. :)
