Things that amuse me

Sometimes, I'll see or read something that will have me laugh out loud. Sometimes, it gets me tickled every time I see it. No, it doesn't take much to amuse me.

In case you can't read it, and since my photo software is out of date (Hint, hint, Dad, I'd really like a current one for my birthday), let me translate- "PAWN- Store wide clearance". Seriously. The store is gone, off the slab. But, the sign lives on. I'm surprised that in north Texas wind, those letters are still there. I first noticed this a year ago, when we moved into this neighborhood. Literally, I laugh every time I see it.
The other day, as I was doing laundry, I just caught a glimpse, but I had to read it. Have you ever really paid attention to the products you use? They come with warnings, sometimes ridiculous, sometimes a bit shocking.
"CAUTION: AVOID OVERDOSING" Really? On dryer sheets? It suggests using 1/2 a sheet for small loads. Goodness forbid we use too much good smelly on our laundry! Oh, and not to use it on children's flame resistant sleepwear, because the sheets could cancel out that property. Holy cow!

That is a hoot about the dryer sheets.

Let me know what it is you are looking for. I like the pawn sign. Noticed it again when we were there for Beth's bd.

Uh oh. I totally use 2 dryer sheets every time. Does that make me an addict?
