Stating the obvious, this was a joke sent to me by a friend. Since I know her height and weight (which is neither of the below) I thought it was funny. But since my height and weight (neither of the below as well) may not have been evident from the picture, I wonder if I managed to mangle a good joke. Sorry about that if I did. Not a joke, two bird families built nests and hatched a bunch of chicks in the eves of two different sides of my house. Kind of an awww moment, except what a mess they made. I'm afraid that if I clean out their nests and fill the spaces with steel wool (I'm told that's the thing to use), they'll go to an less accessible eve. I'm debating leaving the nests. I don't even like birds. All the trees around here, and they choose the house. I once had a cat who loved to be outside during the day in nice weather but she would never ever spend the night outside. Given half a chance, nature prefers civilization too. Makes me wonder why people like to camp. ----- Original Message ----- From: Andy To: lit-ideas@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: 5/31/2006 11:00:54 PM Subject: [lit-ideas] The Yearly Physical I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. The nurse starts with certain basics. How much do you weigh?" she asks. "115," I say. The nurse puts me on the scale. It turns out my weight is 140. The nurse asks, "Your height?" "5 foot 8," I say. The nurse checks and sees that I only measure 5'5". She then takes my blood pressure and tells me it is very high. "Of course it's high!" I scream, "When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I'm short and fat!" The doctor put me on prozac. Do you Yahoo!? Get on board. You're invited to try the new Yahoo! Mail Beta.
