10. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.


There actually is such a thing, diet water, by special K it's water with nutrasweet and fiber. And it comes in different flavors!!!!

So there you go and they also make powder packets that you can put in your water to help with your diet. And no I don't drink this, but I have a friend that lives by this.... CRAZY!!!!! She brings the packets along and adds them to her water, but I usually bring my own food, so we have a good symbiosis.

That is really funny though... good one !!!

Peace Hope Faith Love and bancha

Thanks Warrior.

I've saved it to my temp txt folder and will release it at the most (in)appropriate moment at work!

Meanwhile, may I invite you (and everyone else) to view my profile Album 'How to Smile at Work', if you haven't seen it already!

I like this one: 14. Put Mosquito Netting Around Your Work Area And Play tropical Sounds All Day.
And I believe I can get a few more of my co-workers to do this too....
This one I've tried: 17. When The Money Comes Out The ATM, Scream "I Won!, I Won!"
They thought I was robbing it...LOL...( just kidding ! )...I'd have a $20 bill spit out at me and all I'd have time to get out would be..." I Wo"...
Like this one too: 18. When Leaving The Zoo, Start Running Towards The Parking lot, Yelling "Run For Your Lives, They're Loose!!"
And this one....19. Tell Your Children Over Dinner. "Due To The Economy, We Are Going To Have To Let One Of You Go."
...My parents used this one...now they use it on their granddaughters.
And last...#20...sending it on....

Thanks so much for the laugh, Darrell !!

Those were great! I love the regular coffee to decaf to esspresso(sp). I would probably one of a few who wouldn't "suffer" from someone's trickery on that one because I hate the taste of coffee.

Tracy: It look like you'll have to come up with another "to do" list - or you can just do this one twice.:-)
