Good Idea / Bad Idea

Does anyone else get the sillies? It can't be just me. Driving around town, or at the store, do you just get the urge to do something goofy? I do all the time. Sometimes these impulses are to be acted upon, just for kicks, and other times, maybe it's not so appropriate. For example:

The other day it was wet outside, and the guy, walking down the isle, behind me, at Walmart had squeaky shoes. Should I turn around and yell, "Your shoes are too loud!" ~YES!

Driving my kids home from middle school, should I roll down the window and yell random strange phrases at all the kids walking home. ~Yes, nearly everyday. We actually have rules about when and where you can roll down the window and shout random things at people. They are these: Not in our own neighborhood - people can find out where you live and egg your van or something. Not at stoplights when you'll be stuck sitting next to them for a while. Other than that, it's pretty much "go ahead," but don't say anything particularly rude.

Yesterday driving past the cemetery and seeing a few people gathered around a grave, should I lean out the window and sing "The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out..." ~No, it's probably not a good idea.

There ARE people who don't have this urge at all. Liz thought it was pretty wierd when I pointed and shouted 'A PIRATE!' at point blank range the other day just because the 20ish year old girl was wearing a t shirt with a skull and crossbone motif.
