3 A.M. Thoughts

What do you do when you are walking down the street and you meet the neighborhood transvestite and he is wearing your clothes that he has just taken off your clothesline?

What do you do when you go to a wake and, after expressing your condolences to each member of the family, you go over to the casket and discover you are wearing the same dress as the corpse?

One of  he first signs of aging is forgetting why you have gone into a room.  You stand there thinking"why did I come in here?  What was it I wanted?"  It becomes especially disturbing when you realize that you are standing in the bathroom.

What do you do when you have a pat of butter on the tip of your knife and you realize that the muffin is in a paper baking cup that that says "Fat Free, Fat Free, Fat Free...."
