If life were more like the X-Files...

A post I've been saving for awhile. This grew out of an X-Files DVD binge last year.

  1. Every time you heard a bump from the ceiling, it would be followed, a few seconds later, by something starting to drip.
  2. Every time you passed a hole or some kind of dark opening, you would feel an irresistible urge to pull out a flashlight (which you always carry with you on your person) and crawl down into it.
  3. All uniformity--people who drive the same nondescript dark sedans, wear the same dark suits, or sport the same dark sunglasses--would be regarded as sinister and conspiratorial.
  4. Creepy music would play frequently in the background, making otherwise mundane tasks like opening the mailbox or reaching into the garbage disposal preludes to disaster.
  5. Conduits that lead to places you cannot see--drains, vents, manholes, etc--would be a source of endless fascination for you, and would always have occupants.

Did you know my husband calls Dick Cheney the Cigarette Smoking Man?

I just enlightened my doctor the other day as to the identity of the real killer of JFK. He had been to Dallas recently and saw the grassy knoll where the shooting took place. He had no idea it was the CSM!

X files explains everything!
