Wish List

So here is a nice little list of things that would be way more awesome if they only lasted 10 seconds or less. What do you think? 
  1. Jury duty
  2. Awkward first dates
  3. Going to the DMV
  4. Visiting the dentist
  5. Waiting in line at the post office
  6. Going through airport security 
  7. Riding public transportation
  8. Falling asleep 
  9. Calling tech support
  10. And last but not least the hangover I am going to have Saturday morning.
Now did #10 catch your attention? You might be wondering why oh why is Mr. Shife is scheduling a hangover for Saturday morning. Well I am not planning on it but odds are that I will have one because I know me and me is going to forgot that he is 42 and probably also forgot that he should not be drinking until 3 in the morning. I am getting together with my fraternity brothers for our annual drunkfest ... errr reunion and I never know how these things are going to play out when I am back together with the boys. The plan is to have a few beers, reminisce, and come home before midnight. I also planned on being a member of Jamaican bobsled team. Sometimes a plan doesn't come together. Wish me luck. And I hope your weekend goes according to planned. 

Little Miss Hayden is not going to give two poopy diapers if I have a hangover. 

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. Love your list!! That's what I call planning. I hope it goes as planned, except maybe you feel better Saturday morning. I'm not sure if I could even make it till midnight anymore. Have a great time!

  2. Have a fun weekend! Sometimes fun is worth the hangover I think.

  3. A hangover is proof that you enjoyed yourself... make it a good one. Incidentally, what has 42 got to do with anything...grins.

  4. You young people. What are you like eh? Three oclock in the morning? Blimey mate the night is just getting started! Have a good one!
    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. They are really appreciated.

  5. I agree with Valerie. Have a good time!

  6. What you have to ask yourself is do you want to change poopy diapers with a hangover and all the lovely things that go with said hangover (like sensitivity to strong odors, queasy tum-tums, propensity for projectile 'opining' over gag-inducing goodies, pounding headache, dehydration, etc.).

    Happy early birthday. At 42, are you really going to get your drunkfest on? Really really? Stock up on Maalox and saltines just in case old man. ;-D

  7. Good list! I agree on all ten. I'm hoping for that 10 second hangover for you. Got my fingers crossed.

    Miss Hayden looks so cute. I can't help but smile when I see your two kids Shife! They are a bright spot in our world.

  8. moderation is for monks!

    do us proud.

  9. It's too late for me commenting to give any words of wisdom on the party for the weekend, but I do hope it went well.

  10. Change the background of your blog? Like it.

    Hope you had a great time with your brothers over the weekend. I have one coming up in October as well.

    Hayden is getting big. Wow. Growing so fast right before our eyes.

  11. Definitely agree with #6!!

    Have fun with your frat brothers, enjoy your hangover I am sure you will have earned it haha :)

  12. Have a great Drunkfest!
