Humor – Missing out on National Spring Cleaning Week

Humor – Missing out on National Spring Cleaning Week

It has come to my attention that March 19-25 was National Spring Cleaning Week, seven days set aside to celebrate our instinct to clean, and somehow I missed it. Maybe because I don’t have an instinct to clean.

Humor – The many levels of technology fun

Humor – The many levels of technology fun

The power went out one stormy evening last summer. There was nothing for me to do, but put a candle on the coffee table and lay on the couch with a flashlight propped behind me while I tried to read. The flashlight beam made a perfect circle of light, and I could read surprisingly well […]

Humor – Early birds and night owls: Can we get along?

Humor – Early birds and night owls: Can we get along?

Some people are morning people. Some people are night people. And some people are only people for a few minutes right around suppertime. I happen to be a morning person, though I do cheer up considerably at the thought of supper. Unfortunately, families and workplaces are made up of all types, and this inevitably leads […]

Humor – Losing my rose-colored glasses – among other things

Humor – Losing my rose-colored glasses – among other things

I took off my rose-colored glasses, and now I can’t find them. Actually, they were my brand new reading glasses with pink frames and I lost them after I’d worn them once. Then I found them, put them in a safe place, and haven’t seen them since. If this were an isolated incident, I might still […]

Humor – Hey, be nice when you avoid me, will ya?

Humor – Hey, be nice when you avoid me, will ya?

No one ever talks to me anymore. They text me instead of calling me on the telephone. They email me instead of walking down the hall to my office. I can’t decide if they’re busy or lazy or if they just don’t like me anymore. Of course, now that I’ve called them lazy, they probably […]

Holiday Humor – Gifts for the person on your list who has everything

By Dorothy Rosby  drosby@rushmore.com For the person on your gift list who “has everything,” trust me, they don’t have this: A his and hers chocolate portrait – a photographic portrait rendered in chocolate that goes for a mere $110,000. Make sure the lucky recipients don’t hang it over their fireplace though – unless they like […]

Humor – Driving around with a guilty conscience

Humor – Driving around with a guilty conscience

By Dorothy Rosby Be honest. Have you ever tapped your brakes when you saw a highway patrolman parked by the road – even though you WEREN’T speeding? Me too! It’s my Guilty-Conscience-Even-Though-I-Haven’t-Done-Anything-Wrong-Yet Syndrome, the nagging sense that if they’re looking at me like that, I either messed up or I was just about to. I think […]

Humor – The difference between STPs and BCPs

Humor – The difference between STPs and BCPs

I grew up in a town of 385 people. I know that because my father did the census, among many other things. When I left home, the population dropped by one. Then a few other people left, and some came, and now it’s 313. That’s according to Google, which is probably not as accurate as […]

Humor Column – Which came first? The chicken or the chicken joke?

Humor Column – Which came first? The chicken or the chicken joke?

Why did the chicken cross the road? Because she wanted to be part of the urban chicken movement, and that’s no yolk. There really are a growing number of people in larger cities raising chickens in order to keep grocery costs down and ensure the safety of their eggs. This is called a “movement” because […]
