Monday Listicles

Due to summer days and vacation mood I am going to be short and sweet. You are welcome.

Last week was a blast. I had a great time reading your answers. Surprisingly lots of us have a key on our keychain that we have no idea what it opens. And most of you store wrapping paper under the bed. Also Girl with curl reminded us what the answer to life, the universe, and everything. It’s 42. (I knew there was another The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy mad fan out there!!)

This listicle was suggested by Deborah and inspired by Nora Ephron’s list THINGS SHE WILL MISS AND WHAT SHE WON’T. Feel free to give it your own twist and have fun with it. I promise you this is just a hypothetical list! Thank you Mannahatta Mamma for a great idea.

Next week let us make a list 10 THANKS. Cannot wait to see where this takes you!

But now, 10 things you would and would not miss if the end came today.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

      I think we should stop what we are doing right now and have a piece of bread with nutella. What say you?

      Me too. Unless it is helping me pedal when it is pushing against my back πŸ™‚

    Whining mosquitoes in the heat are the worst.

    Your things you would miss gave me a little lump in my throat. Luckily, chocolate should soothe that. πŸ™‚ Ellen

      Word!! I googled recently and discovered that if mosquitoes were extinct the whole water eco system would collapse and ultimately the world would come to an end. Too bad…

    I am right there with you with both of these lists! I love how we both included our son’s smiles. πŸ™‚ And word verification? UGH!!

  3. Word verification is really beginning to get on my nerves. What’s worse is word verification coupled with comment approval.

    I had an idea or two for Monday Listicles– just in case your idea box actually gets low one day…

    How about 10 things you wish the fairy godmothers gifted you with at birth? Or ten experiences everyone should have by age 30? Fun, Fun! Thanks for doing this– I’m learning to love Mondays. =)

      It’s adults whining that I fear hearing the most. Specially fellow moms. Or man with flu! The worst πŸ˜‰

    Such an interesting topic! I agree I wouldn’t miss whining, but I would miss seeing my kids’ faces.

    I am totally with you on the mosquitoes. And word verification. It is beyond annoying. Especially when its just a mess of unrecognizable symbols.
