Top Ten Signs You’ve Been Watching Too Much Olympics Coverage

I thought it might be time to have a little fun, so with apologies to David Letterman here goes.

10.  You can immediately distinguish the difference in each flag that represents a former Soviet republic.

9.  You start planning your child’s future in four-year segments.

8.  Bronze has become your third-favorite metallic substance.

7.  “Prime time” now means “before lunch”.

6.  You are applying start values based on difficulty to all of your home projects.

5.  You can look at a total stranger and tell what country they are from simply by the color of clothes they are wearing.

4.  Eastern European names roll off of your tongue as easily as do “Smith” and “Jones”.

3.  You attempt to calculate your own weight in kilograms.

2.  You use the word “riposte” in a conversation and actually know what you are talking about.

1.  You are starting to consider badminton as a sport.

Feel free to add your own to the list.

  1. Dude, I can say this because its not yours, rather David Letterman’s.

    Top 10 signs you’ve been doing the top 10 thing too long?

    See above. Seriously.


    Great blog, though…

  2. So funny! How about: You and your husband make up a new sport – “synchronized laundry folding”

  3. Feeling the need to score everything, you give a .3 deduction to your four-year-old for not “sticking the landing” as he gets out of the bath.

  4. that is funny! 😉

    I got a good un what about cow tipping or cowpie toss

  5. “Synchronized laundry folding” would probably lead to “Team dish washing” and “Speed vacuuming”. Could be a big can of worms there. 😉

    Cameron, I’ll bet Dylan dominates on the floor exercise, though.

    Janice, cowtipping might be fun, but I’ll probably pass on the other one. I’ve tried it and can say from experience that “practice doesn’t make perfect”. 😎
