Things I Wouldn't Wanna Be. . .

Warning! The inane post below doesn't contain any pearls of wisdom, spiritual or otherwise. It is merely for my own amusement.

Things I wouldn't want to be seems to be an ongoing conversation my friend, Lisa, and I have. When you have been friends with someone as long as Lisa and I have been, you have to get creative with the conversation topics because you just know each other too well. So, needless to say, we have some serious, thought provoking dialogue!

This started out with me thinking of jobs I wouldn't want to have. Meat packing worker, truck driver, convenience store bathroom cleaner, sanitation worker, etc. Then it evolved into a conversation of what I wouldn't want to be.

So here is a running list to date:

Q-Tip
Toilet plunger/brush/paper (or anything else having to do with the toilet)
Lint trap
Nose/Ear hair trimmers
Garbage Disposal
The floor behind my dryer
Dumpster
Port-a-potty
The bottom of a shoe
A flyswatter
Foot file
iPod earbuds
Flip-flops
Drain pipe
Band-Aid
Toothbrush
Kleenix

Well, that is all I can come up with at the moment. What are some things YOU wouldn't want to be. ***Tim Rush, feel free to make your own list here. I had you in mind when I was doing this post!

BTW, Mom is doing MUCH better! She may go home from the hospital tomorrow. Please continue to pray for her healing!

We're really thankful for the great news about Jana!

I wouldn't want to be a dirty diaper (that kind of has to do with the toilet though). It wouldn't take me long to think of others, but I'll spare myself the thoughts I guess. Ha. You're funny!

Trash can
Trash bag
Trash truck
That grease trap closet at our place
Car tire (road kill purposes)
Crisper drawer in my refrigerator
The floor behind my refrigerator

I can think of all kinds of claustrophobic things like the yolk inside an egg, the mail in a mailbox, the letter in an envelope...but that is my own freakiness not real yuckiness!!!

sarah, what about all the things a person WOULD want to be? like for instance, the fact that while growing up, after a daily dose of Mr. Roger where Mike was informed he could be ANYTHING he wanted to be when he grew up, he decided on a vending machine or a swimming pool!

Well, I don't think I would want to be a bulb syringe (or as my mom called it a snot sucker) a vaccuum (especially at a car wash), a pumice stone, a sponge, the top (ceiling) of a microwave Because lets face it--most people don't clean the top of a microwave until the sides and bottom look dirty. Do you look at the top of the company microwave before you put your cup of soup in it?! By that time...well I'll let you draw your own visual picture.

And I am happy to hear the news about your mom!

Kim and I have just read this together before we head out to eat lunch. Can't wait to hear our conversation. I'm sure our 6 year old, Quincy, will have much to add!

Kim just said, "A pig in India... wait, anyone in India." You'll have to get her to tell you the story behind it later. It's a great Missy Egner story.

Lisa said...

Is there a Missy Egnor story that isn't great?
