Selection of My Twitter Favorites, Edition 5

Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop. You can select the messages you find useful, amusing, or both. Here is the 5th edition of My Twitter Favorites (the oldest post is at the bottom, the newest at the top):

ruraldoctoring
ruraldoctoring I just met a woman whose neck is wider than the circumference of her head around the temples. This should be diagnostic of sleep apnea.
ruraldoctoring

ruraldoctoring
ruraldoctoring I confess, I like my coffee stand-a-spoon-up strength. I like the liquid to be almost opaque. When I add creamer, it should turn taupe.

  1. My favorite post is "If your wallet is thicker than your laptop you got issues". This doesn't really apply if you own the MacBook air. The bottom keyboard portion is only .16 inches thick. Other than that many of the "tweets" cracked me up. Thanks for making me smile today.
