Ever been bored in an elevator?

If the answer is yes here are somethings to do:

Make race car noises whenever someone gets on or off the elevator.

Whistle the first seven notes of “Its a Small World” incessantly.

On a long elevator ride, sway side to side at the normal frequence of the elevator.

Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside whisper loud enough for others to hear, “Hope the police don’t find this.”

Offer name tags to everyone on the elevator…where yours upside down.

Stand silent and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.

When arriving at a floor, grunt and strain to open the door, then act embarrassed when they open themselves.

Greet everyone that gets on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you Admiral.

Bet the other passengers taht you can fit a quater in your nose.

Stare, grinning at the other passengers for awhile, then anounce, “I have new socks on.”

Burp…then say, “mmmmm…tasty”

Say, “Ding!” at each floor.

Stare at your thumb and say, “I think it is getting larger.”

Take a bite of a sandwich and ask other passengers: “Wanna see wha in muh mouf?”

Pull out your gum in long strings

Wear x-ray googles and stare that the other passengers grinning.

****Sadly enough my friends and I actually walk into elevators and do not bother to turn and face the door. It freaks people out when you stand facing them or when the doors open and the first thing they see is your butt….

Unreasonable Ban?

The Truth about Everything Chapter 26

Chapter 26

Nicole ran all the way to the royal stables. Perhaps she could reach Auguste there. She needed to speak with him. She had missed him while he was gone and she wanted to tell him so. She had softened in her attitude towards him and was anxious to hear anything he might have to say.

“Auguste?� she called into the darkness, but the only answer that was returned was the whinny of one the King’s stallions.

“Auguste?� she called again, not knowing why. This time there was no sound at all.

She turned around and headed for the door, her head down, a little disappointed. Where could he have disappeared to so quickly?

She stepped out into the light. Of course, she thought, he came to see how the King was, not to see you.

On her way towards the castle courtyard, Nicole caught sight of a man speaking to two guards at the gatepost. As she approached however, the two men facing her way stopped and looked up. The man speaking to them turned to face her.

“Nicole?� he asked, a little confused. “Nicole de Lancret?�

Nicole squinted into the sun. She put her hand up to shield her eyes from it. Yet, she did not recognize the man who had spoken to her.

“Yes, that is my name. And may I ask who you are?�

“My name is of no importance right now, milady, but come and follow me. I have been asking these men if they have seen you this morning. I was told I could find you in the north tower. Pray, what are you doing out here?�

“I was looking for someone,� Nicole said, “I thought I saw him this morning from the north tower, but, alas, I see that I have been wrong.�

“I do not believe so, milady,� another voice called. The sun again blinded Nicole. She could not see with whom she had been speaking, but she had recognized the voice.
