Home Remedies

"Sushi- The Angel" ACEO can be bid on here.

Time for silliness, but with a practical slant. I got this in an e-mail awhile back and have to admit that some of them are...well, tempting. >:)

Here are your Amazingly Simple Home Remedies:

1. If you are choking on an ice cube simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat. Presto! The blockage will instantly remove itself.

2. Avoid cutting yourself slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold while you chop.

3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.

7. You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

And there you have it. I've really got to remember number 2...

Happy Week-end!

Number 5 looks promising, but I've been practicing number 7 for the last 30-odd years. Yes, they've all been odd.

Meg- Glad I could provide a chuckle! :D And thanks for the kudos on the ACEO!

Lisa- LOL! I'm on the verge of putting number 7 into practice, more so with the WD-40 tho. :p
