Life lesson 793 on 03/18/2012 19:23:32 MDT Print View

I'm out here learning the odd and unusual lessons so you don't have to.....

Williams-Sonoma smoked serrano chili powder is a truly delightful spice. Smoky hot instead of just hot. I like it on many, many things. But one should not try and get a good sniff of the delightful aroma. It is, after all, a fricking POWDER!

I can say my nasal passages have never been this clear......

It is also advisable that one avoid inhaling powered gelatin. Guess what it does when it hits mucous membranes?

Life Lessons 1-792

If you have been eating ghost pepper sauce (600,000skulls)and still have some on your lips do not attempt to "please" your significant other...and yes it is worth learning this rule 792 times if it prevents just one "moment"...

Learned this when I was old enough to reach the spice cupboard...

Vanilla extract does NOT taste like how it smells! Quite an eye opener when you're 5.

How would one describe this type of humor? Dark? Sick? Far Side? Slapstick? 3 Stooges?

I ask because I really enjoy it. I'd like to find more. Once identified I'll be able to Google for it.

Don't ask me why I get the urge to do the things I do. I can't explain it, except to say that I'm missing some filter that most other people seem to have. If I think it, I say it/do it, before thinking ABOUT it. Oh well.

So, at my age, when you get an annual physical doctors like to poke, prod and probe into places you'd prefer they not. Comes with the territory, unfortunately. So last week I had my annual, and as the doc was doing the 'polyp probe', I clenched, smiled, and said "tight, ain't it...."

No sense of humor, those docs. But at least the rest of the physical went VERY quickly......

I don't know... I could see why the doctor speeded up the rest of the exam...

SO, Doug ... you're hinting that you may have been the inspiration of the flagpole scene in "A Christmas Story" ????

Douglas,

Similar non sense of humor with my Dr. when I suggested we save that part of the exam "for the end".

My doctor has no sense of humor either. I told him, during his prostate exam, that I selected him because of his slender fingers. Nothing.

I went to school with and became friends with my doctor's son, which is all fine and dandy until one visit where, laying on the exam table, I realized that my friend's dad had my b@lls in his hand. Not TOO weird, but just a little.

@Travis: consider what it'd been like if your experience had been slightly different, like so .... I went to school with and became "friends" with my doctor's daughter, which is all fine and dandy until one visit where, laying on the exam table, I realized that my girlfriend's dad had my b@lls in his hand. ... he-he

@Ben: prostate exams are small potatoes. I have a friend who, while "on the table" being examined by a proctologist, started waving his hands in front of his wide open mouth. Doctor's assistant asked "What are you doing?" ... he answered "Making shadow puppets on the wall". The doc not only didn't smile, he said "My smart patients don't try to make me laugh while I'm doing this."

ROFFL! Good point. Of course, I'm not often accused of being all that bright.....

"My doctor has no sense of humor either. I told him, during his prostate exam, that I selected him because of his slender fingers. Nothing.

A friend of mine got a similar response when he suggested the doc use two fingers so he could get a second opinion. Docs can be weird.
