19 plus these 2 equals 21 (?) Am I missing something here?

Robert Crane said...

it's tricky one.

i only do two things well: 1) vacuum and 2) exaggerate. doing 19 things well being an example of number 2. a year later i still do the same things well, and my exaggeration has improved from 19 to 23.

this is how my mind operates. like i said, it's tricky.

Yikes...is there a little ADHD going on here?

I’m pretty good at vacuuming too, but exaggerating is where I really shine. I’ll have to tell you the story someday of how I gained this remarkable ability as a child after diving into the bathtub and coming up so fast that I got the bends. With my eyes bulging like a cod fish, I was rushed to a top secret government hospital where due to my doctor’s poor handwriting I was accidentally placed into the hyperbolic chamber, and left overnight….

Note: Hyperbolic chambers were experimental at the time, and the government denies to this day that they ever existed.

ah that's nothin'! i once got the notion of emptying the bath water down the toilet. so i drank it all down, waddled over to the toilet and did my thing.

Randy Johnson said...

Wow! See, that’s the difference between my AHD (acquired hyperbole disorder) and your good ol’ organic exaggerating. You’re a real natural Bob.

Oh yeah, kinda like the time I drank some boiling water because I wanted to whistle.
