Fun On An Elevator

This one has been around a long time, but some of them make me laugh so hard that, well…anyway, it’s not like me to re-post something that’s out there, but I really liked these, so enjoy! I’ve italicized the ones I’ve done so far, and I’ve bolded the ones that make me almost…well, anyway. If you’ve done any of these, be sure to let me know how it went!
24 Fun Things To Do In An Elevator…
1. Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: “Shut up! All of you just shut UP!”
2. Whistle the first seven notes of “It’s a Small World” incessantly.
3. Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside ask: “Got enough air in there?”
4. Offer name tags to everyone getting on the elevator. Wear yours upside-down.
5. Stand silent and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.
6. When arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act embarrassed when they open by themselves.

7. Greet everyone getting on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you Admiral.
8. On the highest floor, hold the door open and demand that it stay open until you hear the penny you dropped down the shaft go “plink” at the bottom.
9. Stare, grinning, at another passenger for a while, and then announce: “I’ve got new socks on!”
10. When at least 8 people have boarded, moan from the back: “Oh, no, not now, darn motion sickness!”
11. Meow occasionally.
12. Holler “Chutes away!” whenever the elevator descends.
13. Walk on with a cooler that says “human head” on the side.
14. Stare at another passenger for a while, then announce “You’re one of THEM!” and move to the far corner of the elevator.
15. Wear a puppet on your hand and talk to other passengers “through” it.
16. When the elevator is silent, look around and ask “is that your beeper?”
17. Say “Ding!” at each floor.
18. Say “I wonder what all these do” and push the red buttons.
19. Listen to the elevator walls with a stethoscope.
20. Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers that this is your “personal space.”
21. Announce in a demonic voice: “I must find a more suitable host body.”
22. Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.
23. Wear “X-Ray Specs” and leer suggestively at other passengers.
24. Stop at every floor, run off the elevator, then run back on.

Why is it that whenever I imagine someone doing this that I see you? Even before this list was posted on your blog, it's like my mind could only picture these things happening if Jason Bishop was doing them.

For some reason, #21 is my favorite. Please put that one on the top of your To Do list, and tell us what kind of reaction you got.
