Friday Smiles # 90

I'm once again visiting my friend Annie at A Stitch in Time, our wonderful host for Friday Smiles.

Last week I shared words given me by a friend who pointed out they could be used when a fresh description of a few common words was needed.  This is the second half of the list.

11. MISTY: How golfers create divots

12. PARADOX:  Two physicians

13. PARASITES: What you see from the top of the Eiffel Tower

14. PHARMACIST: A helper on the farm

15. POLARIZE: What penguins see with

16. PRIMATE: Removing your spouse from in front of the TV

17. RELIEF: What trees do in the spring

18. RUBBERNECK: What you do to relax your wife

19. SELFISH: What the owner of a seafood store does

20. SUDAFED: Brought litigation against a government official

Please don't forget to visit Annie at A Stitch in Time for links from like minded folk that will help you start the weekend off with even more smiles.

Hehehe I think those are so clever. I must be honest that I do have to read them a few times slowly to get the jokes but once I get them they are so obvious lol Thanks for sharing....I really had missed you.
Hugs,

FUNNY! I even went back and read the first 10 and that made me feel guilty for not visiting more often :( I've been trying NOT to be on this computer all day...and some days I win...LOL But I did a little nosing around, past T-days.....

I really like your altered playing cards a lot!

The CB challenge quote is perfect and I LOVE the background you created for it.

I got a kick out of your J52 page, and really like the idea of "pulling" something out of the hat......very clever!

The Harry Potter books and movies are geared, or started out geared for the "younger" generation.( I know more adults that have read them, in fact a teacher is who turned me onto them) When the book first came out there was a lot of hullabaloo about the fact it was about witches and wizards, so I bought the first book, to check out what all the commotion was about (my boys were way younger then....grin) Even my Mom was aghast that I was reading it, that is how long ago the first book came out. Well, long story, short......I enjoyed the book so much I was always waiting for the next one to come out. Then they made the movies!!! The commotion was all about NOTHING!!! Rather simple plots about kids that go to wizard school and the adventures they have while there.

I find that the Sci-fi books geared to that age group don't have all the gory junk in them, written with a great imagination, fast and easy to read, BUT I still enjoy a good Dean Koontz (very SCI-FI and weird at times) and a few of the other "thriller" authors, and throw in a good "love" story or comedy..... WELL, I just really like to read....LOL
