Too Close ...
How close is too close? I was in line at SunTrust bank last week and the lady behind me in the teller line was standing too close. I'm probably a little more paranoid about this kind of thing than most people, but I'm pretty sure she was in my personal space. I think she was the "close talker" from Seinfeld. Is there proper etiquette for that kind of thing? I'm pretty sure the front of her shoe was against the back of mine. She kept her hand in my jacket pocket while she talked over my shoulder to the teller. I would imagine most of you guys are online bankers and never have to deal with this.

I am curious - what is the longest you have ever waited in line - and what were you waiting for? I'm sure my answer would have something to do with Disney World.

I'm with you...I think my answer is probably for a ride at Disney World. I'm also sure you'll agree with me that it was worth it! As a matter of fact, I wish I was standing in line for something at Disney World right now!

I had a fast pass to ride Expodition Everest, and still waited quite a while (and I'm still rather excited that I've ridden something at WDW that Mark hasn't even ridden yet)! BTW, don't complain that no one reads your blog...looks like you've got a new reader!

Meredith - I appreciate you rubbing salt in my wounds. I can only dream about Expedition Everest. Maybe now that my best friends in the ENTIRE world, John and Holly, are back in the Happiest Place on Earth - I might get a chance to ride it.

I'm sure you'll ride it soon. Who knows when I'll get back down there. It is awesome, btw...did I mention that when I called you from the Animal Kingdom?! HA!

the potluck lines at church tend to be pretty long. and i'm sure my personal space has been quite invaded there before. everyone is trying to make sure they get some of Lou Jackson's banana pudding.
When you're short, everyone seems to be in your personal space. and your nose tends to be in their's.

Kelvin - where's my King Kong stamps?!?

He left a comment on my blog about a year ago, and when I visited his blog and (should have) won some free King Kong stamps from New Zealand, he never sent them.

You can't trust anybody these days.

Anytime buddy, you know you are welcome here. I am dying to ride it myself, but the doctor says I have to wait until this bun is out of the oven. : ( Oh what we go through for our kids.
We haven't gotten our silver pass yet, so don't show up for a few more days.
