Thursday Thirteen (8th)

Thirteen Fun Things to do in an Elevator

1.Make race car noises when anyone gets on or off.

2.Jam miniature marshmallows up your nose and sneeze them out. See how many you can do at a time.

3.Sell Girl Scout cookies.

4.Stare, grinning, at another passenger for a while, and then announce: "I've got new socks on!"

5.Give religious tracts to each passenger.

6.Meow occasionally.

7.Walk on with a cooler that says "human head" on the side.

8.Bring along a fork and Stare at people through the tines of a fork and pretend they're in jail.

9.Say "Ding!" at each floor.

10.Say "I wonder what all these do" and push the red buttons.

11.Listen to the elevator walls with a stethoscope.

12.Make up a language and ask people for directions in it.

13.Take a bite of a sandwich and ask another passenger: "Wanna see wha in muh mouf ?"

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!
The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged!

ROFL! I love these! If you were selling Girl Scout cookies in the elevator, I would buy 10 boxes from you. Seriously. Especially if you had those low-fat apple ones that they sold for like a year and discontinued. Those were the best.

very funny! one time my shoe got caught in that little space between the floor and the elevator and i tripped inside. it was sort of like dominos or bowling pins, i flew inside and everyone fell down. very embarrassing but hysterical.

Good ones. Have you ever considered staring into the eyes of a member of the opposite sex (or, heck, even the same sex) and sensuously singing Aerosmith's "Love In An Elevator"? Me neither. But it's something to think about.

Blogger Ed Bremson, MFA said...

This is hilarious, Raggedy. The elevator is such a weird place anyway: no one speaks, no one makes eye contact, everyone gives each other space. Why does it have to be that way? And what is this with elevator music? Let's play some good dancing music for a change. Maybe we could all dance inbetween floors, or do karaoke.

I like to be a little playful like this sometime, but it usually mortifies my son if I am.

OH my Gosh....too funny! I especially like the ding idea. Lately, the elevators that I use at the huge hospital I go to has that automated ladies voice. (the same voice on every automated voice mail) On Every floor up I repeat her out loud, in her voice, as best as I can. Most people just look at me like I'm crazy.

I think I am too!

"Welcome to floor 3! Thank you for riding". She's annoying so I try to make her a bit more fun.

I loved this list! Selling Girl Scout Cookies is not a bad about a captive audience. And as for #12, when my husband worked in customer service, he used to take each call in a different accent and "identity" on slow days. Can you believe he still works for that company? Thankfully, he's no longer in Customer Service!
