The Last Stupid Thing

Every day, for some reason, we do stupid things. What was the last stupid thing you did?

Mine is simple: after making coffee this morning, I took a very large sip. For some reason, I forgot the coffee would be extremely hot – and now I’m enjoying having a numb mouth. Fun!

I find myself doing things like putting the milk away in the cabinet and the cereal in the fridge (though I always catch myself while I'm doing it).

The last stupid thing I did was floor it as I drove up the highway today...I so rarely get out of 4th gear and it was such a lovely day....Shortly after I got off at my exit, a cop pulled up behind me, and *turned the other way*!!!!!!! Boy was I lucky. And stupid. I am not in Germany. Repeat: I am not in Germany. phew. The guy in the SUV must have done something worse.

I just ran a red light this morning. I saw it beforehand and everything. My brain just decided not to tell my foot to press down on the brake pedal.

Mine would involve consuming some White Castle fozen cheeseburgers a few minutes ago. Those bad boys will run through me in about 5 minutes.

Oh man, I used to make those all the time when I babysat. They'll tear right through you...

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
