  1. Yeah, did you ever sit on the bus next to that button or lever that’s like
    “Do NOT Press Except for Emergencies”
    and then you just sit there, using all of your energies not to press it. But you really want to now. If it hadn’t said: Do not press, I’d have been fine. But now, I do.

    Plus those: Keep out! signs. What are they about?
    Obviously what ever they are trying to keep us out of is much better than what they are letting us stay out in. Duh.
    I want to go get some chocolate now.

  2. The opposite would be ยซ don’t stay in front of the yellow line ยป ๐Ÿ™‚

    Seriously, I hope this is not what I think… Are you talking about suicide? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


  3. Intriguing! I hope I’m not stepping over any yellow line when I suggest this haiku!

    overwhelming wish
    to step over the yellow line —
    once more I resist

    (Yours if you want it!)

  4. My wife is exactly like you- and like most of the people who have commented here. I am a bit more reticent. I usually feel there’s a good reason for staying behind the yellow line or for not trespassing. They (whoever “they” are) only have our well being in mind when they post warnings. It’s not like they’re trying to hide something. Right? ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. My husband says that “rules are in place to control the fun” and we laugh at this silliness. But he’s totally serious. And, I love him for it. It’s good that we’re all different and that rule followers and run benders can live happily together.


  5. If you run off like that – then you have to stay with me and hold my hand!
    (It used to be the children – now it’s the grandchildren, life goes round and round)
    I’m pleased to see that you were standing on the right side of the line when you took the picture.
