I'm eating some cake and ice cream, (which conveniently is NOT on my diet). But, as I start to mix my cake and ice cream together I think of all the funny things people do.
Maybe mixing ice cream and cake together in a bowl isn't inherently funny, but the fact that I once saw someone do it and now feel compelled to follow seems funny to me. I mean I don't even really like to mix my food!
Have you ever thought of all the things you do simple because you saw someone else doing it and thought "hey that's a good idea"? Only to look back years later and hang your head in shame.
A word or phrase you now like to use.
A style of dress.
The way you fix your hair.
I remember when I was fairly young hearing someone answer the phone "heaven-o", instead of the traditional "hello ".
Boy did I think that was cool.
So for the next 2 phone calls I proudly answered "heaven-o" only to be greeted with "huh"?
They say imitation is the highest for of flattery, but maybe just giving the person a compliment would be smarter.
