What To Do

Here’s a list some hypothetical situations where I have given you what would appear to be the logical solution. I’m doing this for a multitude of reasons, this can be used as a learning experience for all, it’s snowing ,its Friday, I’m bored, I have N’sync in my head, whichever it may be you’re going to enjoy it because let’s face it you probably have nothing better to be doing anyways. Yes for run-on sentences!

Situation 1

Your significant other watches Jersey Shore.

What to do: Calmly explain that by watching this show they are supporting terrorism and you have no choice but to report them to the government.

What NOT to do: Start watching the awful show with them. I’ll report both of you.

Side Note: do not judge, what would pop into your head after writing “situation”? I’m doomed, I know.

Situation 2

You decide you want to start dieting.

What to do:  Educate yourself on several different diets and find the one that best suits your needs and lifestyle.

What NOT to do: Choose the most expensive form of dieting while trying to get out of debt.

Situation 3

Your family is going on vacation to your favorite spot in the whole world and you can’t afford to go.

What to do: Write down the pros and cons, also listing the repercussions of several more added years of debt.

What NOT to do: Crumple up, chew, and swallow the cons and book the trip anyways, out of sight out of mind.

Side Note: you could also try crying.

Situation 4

You’re in severe debt.

What to do: Assess your debt level, live on a budget, stop spending, and reevaluate your life..

What NOT to do: Start a blog, debt does not clear up fast enough to make for interesting reading material.

Situation 5

You’re lost in the woods.

What to do: Moss grows on the north side trees, there’s always civilization north, so walk north. This is only applies if you’re in the northern hemisphere. If you’re in the southern, you can’t be helped.

What NOT to do: Run into a bear, unless it’s Smoky the Bear, then just go back and put out your campfire.

Side Note: If the moss thing doesn’t work, blame Hollywood, not me.

Again these are just hypothetical and in no way reflect real life situations.  It’s a slow day in the news room folks, my apologies.  Hopefully overnight I’ll have won the lotto or something. Until then spend wisely and keep to the plan, no over indulging this weekend or getting lost in the woods. I’ll leave you with the lyrics from a song I was fortunate enough to stumble upon while reading another bloggers blog.

“Tired of lyin’ to myself, tryin’ to buy what can’t be bought.
It’s not livin’ that you’re doin’ if it feels like dyin’.”
-Old Before Your Time by Ray LaMontagne.

Happy Frizzle Day
