Thompson: It's test time

POSTED: July 24, 2008 5:00 a.m.


That's right kids, it's test time. For those of you who read my column faithfully, it should be a breeze. If you don't do that well, then get with the program! (just kidding). Deborah Jarrard sent me a nice e-mail letting me know that she cuts my column out each week, laminates it and puts in a special notebook. Deborah is going to ace this quiz!

1. If your husband is slow in getting a task done, what can you do?

2. If you accidentally write on a white board with a permanent marker, what can you do to get it off?

3. True or False: A good way to disinfect a sponge is to put it in your microwave for a minute on high.

4. If your dishwasher doesn't seem to be getting your dishes clean, what's the first thing you should check?

5. What do you do if your socks still smell after washing them?

6. A 'possum takes up residence on your back porch and doesn't want to leave. What's a humane way to get rid of the 'possum?

7. What three keys do you hit on your phone to keep from receiving calls from people who have their caller ID blocked?

8. True or False: You can remove shoe odor by placing newspapers in your shoes at night.

9. True or False: A great way to remove wallpaper is to use a 50/50 mix of fabric softener and hot water.

10. If you're going to be flying with a young infant, what should you bring with you to give to fellow passengers who are sitting next to you?
