Skittles. :TheWave:

I just finished eating some Original Fruit Skittles. My hands are shaking and feel like I am about ready to bounce off the walls. What's up with that?

I must be having a major carb rush which means I am going to be feeling like complete crap here in about an hour or so. I can't imagine what I would be like right now if I had ADD or ADHD. This is what I get for maintaining such pitiful dietary habits.

I have been sitting here for a while meaning my physical activity is minimal and yet I felt a sudden increase in my heart rate and respiratory rate. My pulse is 108 and respirations at 20.

No more Skittles for me.

I am going to take this post in a different direction in the event anyone is interested. I would like to talk about meth and energy.

One of the reasons for use that comes up very frequently among those trying to break their addiction to meth is that it gives them more energy. Is it fair to say then that an addiction to meth is the same as having an addiction to energy?

What are your thoughts on the matter?

At first glance, I thought the heading said, "Who needs MEN..."

Who needs men when the world has Skittles? LOL well, men do tend to have the same effect on me sometimes. That's for sure.

And they're good for fixing things around the house...stick a few under the table leg, and voila! No more wobbly table...

See what I mean? Chocolate makes a girl feel good. Skittles give ya a rush. Hell, any kind of candy. So we really don't need men.

Nonsense. You just fold the wrapper to the required thickness and stick it under the wobbly leg.

Well, you've gotta admit ladies, that men are at least good for holding down the couch if it ever suddenly becomes lighter than air and threatens to float to the ceiling.

And good for pulling 100 lb dogs off of ya'. Talk about shaking...

My Rott just tried attacking me! Luckily, my husband was here to get the dog off me. I'm sitting here in shock, shaking! God! I don't even want to think about what might've happened if my husband wasn't here. I'm little! Whew!

So, see! They are good to have around...sometimes! Lol..

*damn!*

I know! Me too. This is the first since...well, I can't remember the last time I was glad to have him around. Lol..

We've had problems with the dog and aggression in the past. We thought we had it under control, trained. I guess, we don't.

The dog growled at my son, I went over to correct him, I grabbed him by the collar to put him in his crate, he went after my arm. I felt his teeth in my arm and quickly pulled away before he could sink his teeth into me, then he went at me. I yelled and my husband ran in the room and pulled the dog off me. I'm in shock. Still shaking.

Sorry to go a little off topic, but you all were talking shaking and having men around the house. Luckily, he was here. Damn! :eek:

This has nothing to do with skittles but...

As for uses for men-- Since I've been strengthening my arms with weights, I no longer need my husband to open bottles for me. However, just so he will feel needed, I pretend I can't open the bottle. :)

LOL! I'm the one who opens the jars and bottles around here :ROFL:

OTOH, I -do- need him to change light bulbs, and get things off the top of the fridge. I'm kinda short...well, sorta. 5'6", wich really isn't all that short, but when you grew up around, married, and gave birth to people who were all much taller than you, it -feels- short. >.<

She used to pretend she couldn't mow the lawn!!

See how lucky you women are! At least you can get your men to do these things.

Other than the dog incident, I could never get my husband to do anything. He was like having a third child. Our roles were reversed. He was the woman, acting all helpless and needy, and I was the one doing everything he should've been doing. So, see how lucky you are! Lol...

Having to give an ultimatum to a man really does not sit well with me however, I had to do that very thing just the other day. It's pretty sad when things get to that point.

He attempted to alter the course of things by making gray what must be black or white. In other words, he attempted to avoid the point which was quite clearly defined so I made the choice for him.

To bad he wasn't even willing to work with me to identify possible alternatives.

As a guy all I can say is: Huh?

Wanna see a pic of me with Skittles up my nose?

Just kidding.

Oh, that reminds me of the time I had to take my son to the ER because he shoved a popcorn kernel up his nostril and I couldn't get it out. Come to find out, he had 3 of them up shoved up there!

By the way, does anyone happen to know what the plural for orifice would be?
I honestly don't know.

Never understood people's difficulties with jars...
Pop the lid once against the countertop corner, and most jars twist right open...

Isn't that just the funnest thing? (Yes, I'm being a smart-azz)

I had to take my oldest to the emergency room because she shoved a plastic birdcage on her head, and it was cutting off circulation. I couldn't get anything in there to cut it off, myself, without cutting her.

Oooohhhh. Bad idea for me. I tend to miss, and break them. Instead, I just tap the lid all the way around to break the seal.

My youngest sister once put a rock in her nose. It wasn't easy getting THAT out.

Isn't it orifices?

Just toss them off the wall, if they don't open on impact, they're sure to when they hit the floor.....

Nah...too much to clean up :ROFL:

Being a parent sure takes a toll on the nerves.

Orifices works for me and all mine work to.
