Friend


The statistics on sanity say that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness.

Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you.

I already knew it was me!

Shadow said...

LL Cool Joe said...

I'm trying to think of 3 friends....I think we all have some form of mental illness, to a greater or lesser extent.

TechnoBabe said...

heartinsanfrancisco, I accepted long ago where I am in the one-in-four.

Stickup Artist, Hey, you are like me.

Ocean Girl, To some degree yes.

Ms.A, So many of us are not afraid of the truth.

Shadow, I knew you would like it too.

LL Cool Joe, You have so many friends, in real life and in blogland.

Brian Miller said...

i have been sitting here waiting for the comments to get passed multiples of four...hehe...i am so in trouble...lol

DJan said...

I'm pretty sure I am the one, since I am positive that OCD runs in my family, and I'm an obsessive counter. So I have made my friends breathe a little easier. :-)

Attila The Mom said...

LOL Love it!

Jeni said...

I've seen that little cartoon and quip many times and still get a good chuckle over it when I see it again. And definitely, I fit the "crazy" label. I generally tell people that I even have the papers to prove it too.
P.S. -Have a Happy Easter!

Cinner said...

It has already been confirmed. lol.
I am on my way to a doctors appointment now...maybe I should ask.
have a happy easter, thanks for all your visits. I can see how the weather affects our moods for sure. hugs.

Margie :)

Andrew said...

I have always known it was me.

lisleman said...

catch 22 right - you are not crazy if you know you are crazy, only if you don't think you are crazy.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Oh no shock here..it is me!

Anne H said...

If only I had 3 good friends!

Maggie said...

hahaha you really made me smile! Good one!! :D

The Absence of Alternatives said...

This short post made me smile, think, and then LOL.

I will gladly loan myself out to anybody who needs a nutty friend. ;-)

Cricket said...

Yeah, it's me I think.

Heh, heh. I've heard this one before, but it makes me laugh all the same. It's right up there with:

By definition, half the people you know are below average.

TechnoBabe said...

Betty, A surprising ending, huh.

Savannah, You crack me up.

Brian, That still puts you in the mix.

DJan, You are a bean counter?

Attila the Mom, Glad you like it.

Jeni, Same to you.

Cinner, On gray days, hubby has a hard time and sometimes I do too.

Kristina P, Ha to you too.

TechnoBabe said...

Talon, Good for you. Your friends must like you so much. You bring some zing to the table.

Margie, If I agree, I like that.

Andrew, Me too.

lisleman, I know it and I like it.
How crazy is that?

Vinny, Welcome to the club.

Anne, you do.

Maggie, Glad you smiled during your spring break.

Absence, Maybe you and I should start a business renting ourselves out as the fourth person.

Cricket, Maybe you should join the new business with me and Absence.

Jeanie said...

I have that saying on a magnet on my refrigerator.
I love how many of those who have commented claim to be the one in four. Bloggers are great people.

Big Dave T said...

Oh, it's probably me. My wife always says I'm crazy.

Jeni said...

Thanks for the compliments on my "Small World" post. It was really quite easy to find the video. I confess that until about 4-6 weeks ago, I had no knowledge whatsoever though about the former LA Times reporter lady who had graduated from our local school. But, another woman from her class in H.S. -and a Facebook friend of mine -had posted some info about the reporter friend, including some stuff she had written for the column she now writes for the Orange County newspaper. I read her stuff and really liked what I read so, of course, I then added her column to my reader! It was a total fluke that I happened to see her in that newsclip -as I'd just clicked on that channel and there it was and it had her name under her photo with the info that she was a former LA Times reporter and I put two and two together then. Not that terribly many women, in that age range, who worked for the LA Times, with the name of Shawn Hubler ya know! And that, along with my love of good old "Small world" type stories, well I had to go on a search and destroy mission to get that url for the video to give it to my Facebook friend -who it turns out -had missed the broadcast because she was out and about with some child's sports routine! Glad I was able to provide that information to her as knowing how excited I was when I figured things out, I knew my friend would be ecstatic and just about to burst at the seams with pride for her friend then too!

If they're okay, you need to think of more of your friends. Eventually the statistics will be on your side!

Hilary said...

Now that's a smile-evoker.. just like you. :)

Mrs4444 said...

LOLOLOL!!

Murr Brewster said...

I'd rather be batshit crazy than a conformist. Okay, not really.

Hello there, I popped over from your comment at Maggie May's.
We had a rabbit for nearly 10 years, supposedly tame but still had wild traits (don't mention the word burrowing!) and his favourite of all food was plum tree leaves. If he saw me in the vicinity of the plum tree, he would make a dash at the speed of light to beg for some leaves.
Do you have a plum tree?

Maggie May said...

That is a lovely description of a friend!

Concerning your comment about rabbits on my blog.
I wouldn't feed wild rabbits! Their ideal food is grass and hay! They are free to forage & get all the nutrients that they need & wild rabbits can tell what is good for them to eat.
Never give a rabbit lettuce cucumber or tomatoes.

Pet rabbits on the other hand cannot tell what garden plants will harm them. They seem to have lost this ability. They have to be fed a balanced diet as they are not free to forage and are totally dependant on us.
Don't make the wild ones dependant on you!

Have a lovely Easter.
Maggie X

Nuts in May
