In response to Shannon's question about bonkos.. Read here to learn all about bonkos. It is a game played with 3 dice. There are 3 tables with 4 people per table. Each table has 3 dice. You play the numbers 1-6 each round and there are 3 rounds. You are partnered with the person sitting around from you. The object of the game is to roll the highest amount of points per game.. Scoring points is simple. During each round, each person must roll all 3 dice. Example: if you are playing round 1, you need to roll as many 1's as you can. A point is received for each 1. If you do not roll a 1, the dice are to be passed clockwise to the next person. If you roll 3 of a kind, it's 5 points. If you are lucky enough to roll 3 of a kind that matches the round you are playing (three 1's in round 1), that is a bonkos and it's 21 points. The game stops when the head table reaches 23 points. Then, the winners move up to the next table and the next game starts. It's a lot of fun and it's a good excuse to have a few drinks! There are prizes awarded at the end of the 3rd round for highest games won, lowest game, door prize, most bonkos.. The age range for my group is 30 - 65 and boy do we have a blast!
Olivia and I did a quick trip to the health food store to pick up a couple things. I also wanted to check out their stock on a few items. It was a little disappointing not finding some of the items I wanted. No big deal. I will have to make a trip to Whole Foods soon. Has anyone shopped there? What do you think? It's about an hour drive, each way. While coming home, I was driving (trapped) behind a ghost car. I swear... I could not see any driver at all. Of course, the car was Buick. Nuff said.
(link snagged from AskMen) First-year students at medical school were receiving their first anatomy class with the body of a deceased man. They all gathered around the surgery table where lay the cadaver, covered with a white sheet. The professor started the class by telling them, "In medicine, it is necessary to have two important qualities as a doctor. The first is that you must not be disgusted by anything involving the human body." To prove his point, the professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the corpse, withdrew it, and stuck it in his mouth. "Go ahead and do the same thing," he told his students. The students freaked out, and after a few minutes of hesitation, took turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead body and sucking on it. When everyone finished, the professor looked at them and told them, "The second most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle finger and sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention!"
