Signs You've Overdone It

So as we move inevitably closer to New Year's Day - Saturday, my friends - here are five questions to help you make better resolutions.



Looking at yourself in the mirror induces the same reaction as drinking fresh paint.

You devote an afternoon to spending quality time in your bathroom.

You would rather chew tacks than go outside.

Your spouse whispers "Good morning" and you reply, "I'm not going to talk to you until you stop yelling."

WORD for YOUR WEEK: My daughter wanted to know why we get goosebumps and why do we use that name. The answer to the second part of her question is easy: apparently when you pluck all the feathers off a goose, the resultant fleshy part looks like tiny little bumps all across the skin from stem to stern. Any type of fowl, actually, looks like that. We might as well call them chickenbumps, or duckbumps, which is actually a bit more fun to say. As to the reason, well, eHow has a pretty decent explanation.
