Good idea, bad idea
Good idea: Introducing your spouse to Ancestry.com
Bad idea: Introducing your spouse to Ancestry.com just prior to handing him/her a list of long-deferred household chores you'd like him/her to complete whilst he's on Spring Break.
The downside: Door slamming, murmuring under one's breath, oaths to someone else's diety, martyred sighs and a whole host of other passive-aggressive manifestations about which you'd be embarrassed if you had a lick of sense. And worse - to which he affords no notice.
The silver lining: He finds his grandfather's naturalization card and the ship's manifest from his grandmother's immigration from "White Russia."
Good idea: Recycling
Bad idea: Thinking you can do your part by spitting your gum into some toilet tissue while you go pee and then using the tissue to wipe without ensuring you've completely encased the gum within said tissue.
The downside: If you're neither pubically denuded nor prepubescent, you may find yourself in a rather painful and sticky situation.
The silver lining: Minty fresh privates
