"Small things amuse small minds," my mother used to joke when one of us kids would become absorbed by something silly. I think of this saying often, especially because I'm often entertained by goofy little things.
Helen turned me on to something that amuses the heck out of me -- and at the risk of demonstrating how easily amused I am, I'm spreading it here. It's one of those Google games. You search the phrase "Unfortunately [insert your name]" and then read the results for general hilarity.
Here are a few of the ones that got me grinning:
Unfortunately, Diane is no longer breeding
Unfortunately Diane didn’t have the strength to take on a troubled teenager
Unfortunately, Diane can only offer this service for brides who have booked a couture gown with her
Unfortunately, Diane (The Cake Lady), has retired.
Unfortunately, Diane could not easily use the new gadgets
Unfortunately, Diane had an accident while away last week and will be convalescing for at least a month
Unfortunately, Diane had to take a break from teaching because of the devastating effects of a rare and incurable blood disease.
Unfortunately, Diane who is estimated to be 13 years of age, was found in lower Manhattan with a severely arthritic wing
Unfortunately, Diane isn't a credible character
Yeah, I know. Easily amused. But I'll bet you're headed off to Google now to see how YOUR name comes up...
