I left a cittern on the roof of my car once. I drove 50 miles home before I realized it. An ad in the Chicago paper lost and found section, a $50 reward, and a $90 repair bill, I had it back. I think if it had been a guitar, I never would have seen it again. I figured someone opening the cloth case would not be likely to say, "oh gosh, an octave mandolin, just what I've always wanted." Never done anything like that again.

I live in a city with many University and technical students-and school began yesterday. So, I have seen plenty of questionable transportation techniques on the streets recently-especially matresses being transpirted on the tops of vehicles.

When I was a student, I learned that many car roof racks are ornaments, and are not attached to very much. I recall that my mattress ended up in the forest beside the highway.

Magnet on a string?

I once carried a manly little handbag around with my stuff in it and once left it on top of the car and drove onto the freeway and home. I got a call half an hour later from someone who lived only a quart-mile away from me, wishing to return the thing, which he had boldly stopped to pick up from the on-ramp. It was intact and I have never forgotten his act of human kindness.

Never close a self locking door without your keys IN YOUR HAND.

I stopped to pick up a wallet in the road once, It was a busy road and the contents had scattered. So I dodged in and out of the traffic and gathered all that I could find.

I called the owner and she came by to pick it up, and she was pissed at me for not getting everything.

"filtered hot water does nothing for me"
Have you tried it?
I used to know a delightful elderly Scottish woman who couldn't drink tea or coffee for medical reasons. When with people who were taking tea she would ask for "silver tea" - hot water.
I tried it, and it really is much nicer than plain cold water, especially when served in a bone china cup.

Never bake a squash without first making a hole for steam to escape.

This one's unique: never use the Miracle-Gro solution intended for the houseplants to fill the reservoir in the piano's Dampp-chaser. I have a friend who tunes pianos, and she found the strangest things growing in a college's Dampp-chasers. It took a while to figure it out.

(A Dampp-chaser is an appliance which either adds or removes humidity from the interior of a piano, as needed. I have one, but I fill it with very clean water.)

Never plant Grandpa Ott morning glories. Invasive!

"filtered hot water does nothing for me"

"Have you tried it?"

No... but I know of a couple of people who did drink hot water. *I* intended to have coffee.

Even worse was the time I put in the coffee, but neglected the water. I caught that after about 30 seconds...before serious problems.

Never crack the joke on stage about there being too much happiness in the world, saying you only mentioned it to the wife's sister in bed this morning, and forget your wife is in the audience.




And her bloody sister.

Re, the warning above, about keeping your spare keys on the same ring as your "regular" keys: It appears that car rental agencies (here in the US, anyway) are now giving the renter two keys to the rental car - on one ring, with no way to separate them. What's the point?

You can cook an egg in a microwave without the shell if you first prick the yolk with a cocktail stick, toothpick, or other sharp point. Not the best way of cooking eggs though - there so many better alternatives.
