"If I Ruled The World" - Nas

. . . . .

* I would make sporty cars that allow you to see the road and keep the sun out of your eyes at the same time.

It's SUV's for me [until then].

* I'd make the "wait time" at the MVD be under two hours.

And require each person to use hand sanitizer before entering.

* I'd make it so that there were no actual calories in eating muffins if you just eat the tops.

*  I'd get away with wearing one of these hats around town too and not have anyone question my "adult-ness".

*  I'd be running in this.


*  I'd make it so those blue [post] mailbox's were clear so I wouldn't have to make sure my letter went down even though I heard it go down.

 . . . . .

what would you change?

Happy Thursday!

Not only do I do the self-check at the post box, but I'm teaching my kids to do it too!!! Must pass on the craziness!!!

Kerrie T. said...

Hahahaha! I'd make it so everyone could work from home!

RunningLaur said...

I'd the world set up so that there's a Pandora station that plays a variety of songs I want to hear all day - especially the ones that I don't know I want to hear them. So burnt out on the same ol' same ol'.

And I'd make it 80-90 degrees out. This winter thing sucks (says the girl in Arizona :) )

Heather said...

I would make sure that slow drivers would only be allowed to drive in the right lane.
and people would always have to use their turn signals when they are turning in front of you.
and any chocolate that you ate would have no effect on your body except for the happiness it brings :)(no calories, etc..)

Katie said...

I need one of those hats.

Katie said...

I'm right there with you on the running in Surf City and I would make it so that I'd never have to leave cali!

Marlene said...

Hehehe, these are cute!!!

I would make every Wednesday an international holiday!!!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

hahaha!! Clear mialboxes--you are too creative. And I am completed totally utterly flattered by your comment on my blog considering I idol you! Don't be weirded out--I'm not completely obsessed, just a lil!

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

If I ruled the world, I'd make it so that no one would think fitness was optional(tomorrow's post topic), everyone loved to push their limits, and every runner who passed you would have to say one nice thing about you before they could. (okay that last one would only help runners but still)

C2Iowa said...

Good list. If I ruled the world -- I'm not sure that I should be left with that kind of power! If I were, one of the firsts would be to make snow illegal below 3,000 feet and then free running kicks for life for all.

Rose said...

All radios would have a karaoke station with songs that are perfect for singing at the top of your lungs.

racing dawn said...

i wish you were coming to surf city too...

we still have a couple days to make something happen...

Christi said...

I would make Jimmy Johns healthy and a part of my daily diet!

Kovas said...

I wouldn't change anything, I'll just continue ruling the world.

misszippy said...

SO funny your hang-up about the mailbox!

I'd make running injuries impossible to get!

TRI714 said...

2 day work weeks with day weekends ! What too much ? Ha , youd all thank me.

Alicia said...

I just had a major ditsy moment while I was trying to figure out why you would ever want to run wearing a huge surfboard medal. Doh!

Let's see. If I ruled the world, I'd make the world always smell like fresh cut grass and put a mute button on my children. :)

termite said...

i'd pass a law (the termite law) that every single person had to shave their head monday morning. that way hair wouldn't be an issue like my 50lb mop is.
also, all luggage, no matter what size had wheels. :)

Jason said...

I would change where you lived or where I lived so we could train together and I could see the way a person handles 20+ mi on the treadmill.

But really so that I could meet P-Nut and her wonderful sense of humor.

Make
It
Happen.

Melissa Cunningham said...

so its not my daughters who are ruling the world?tell that to my 5month old please!

:)

love the peanuts hat btw!

Jill said...

I'd like a rule that Colorado came with an ocean and warm year-round weather, and no one would ever get paralyzing heel injuries, that everyone would have insurance, and that blogger friends from CO and AZ meet up once a year to run a 50 together.

ajh said...

Love the muffin top one!
I am trying to lose holiday weight. I am doing okay but feel everytime I resist something wonderful - those homemade chocolate chip cookies last night - I should lose a pound!

Pam said...

Hahaha... don't worry about your letters. We look for hung envelopes every time we open them.

Will said...

I'd make it so Madana married a dentist and became a PTA president.

ShutUpandRun said...

I'd like a glue for stress fractures that guaranteed instant recovery. Then I could keep getting them with no consequences.

Lindsay and James Cotter said...

I'd make wine free like running water and magical running speed!

Raegun said...

I would run like I can in my dreams.

Evolv Rose said...

Roads would be for bikes and pedestrians first, cars, second.

Everyone's dream job would be a short ride or run from home.

If the world were to still have a lot of drivers, everyone would know to ALWAYS use their mother-lovin' turn signals!!

Nelly said...

I have some friends running the Surf City half marathon, it sounds like a great race! I can never seem to maintain top form during this time of the year, so I've never thought about running it...

Bridget said...

hahahah, i love your muffin tops thing. that'd be nice.

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

I LOVE this. I would make popcorn without those papery bits that get stuck in your teeth.

Chris K said...

I'd make Blogger abolish Word Verification. Oh, and I'd have the Surf City people shorten the race to, say, 24 miles and not tell anyone.

Char said...

'Fess up - who ate the tops of the muffins? Seriously, though, I found a baking tray so you can just
that lets you bake just the muffin tops. Imagine how many calories you'd save?

Johann said...

I'll make traveling to other countries to run in ultras free. Chocolate cake as reward for waking up each day.

Sarah said...

There would be no vomit like I'm dealing with right now at 1am.

Silly Girl Running said...

1. I would ban all running injuries.
2. No more rain during the daytime.
3. cupcakes = no calories.

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

Genius idea on the mailboxes!

1. My State of the Union would not be during PrimeTime TV shows.

2. You could take an "advanced" driving test and if you were worthy you would be allowed to drive in the fast, left lane. If you failed, you must stay to the right. Stickers on your cars would verify your ability.

3. I'd ban onions. They are awful.

4. I would ban wearing ties. They are stupid and chafe.

5. I'd put term limits on the House and Senate.

6. I'd require all communities to institute bike lanes so more people could commute to work on their bikes.

7. I would have started off-shore drilling of oil 10 years ago so the events in the Middle East would not effect us today.

8. All Smoothie Kings will have a drive thru (and Subway too).

9. Any organization that only accepts Money Orders or Cashier Checks for payment would be abolished because they make our lives unnecessarily more difficult. I am looking at you state and county govt.

10. I'd require Wal-Mart to institute a dress code.

Matty O said...

LOL at the walmart dress code!!!

Emz you are a nut. BUT, I love that you actually take my thoughts and remember them and then post them on your blog. The mailbox... GRRRRRRRRR DID YOU EAT MY MAIL OR DID IT GET STUCK?!?! ANSWER ME STUPID BLUE BOX!

You have sunshine... what is this sunshine you speak of?

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Doesnt AZ DL expire every 30 years? I though they did, so why is the DMV so crowded?

That hat looks like the Warrior Dash Finisher hat, Matty O, H, and me are all doing that race together, so we will be sporting that hat because we earned it. I dont know if AZ has a Warrior Dash race, If it sounds interesting to you

Emz said...

DBB- I was required to get a new photo.

All. That. For. One. [really bad]. Photo.

My last one was two weeks after my wedding. [12.5 years ago]. ;)

skinnyrunner.com said...

fancy nancy said...

Love these! I would give stay at home moms a salary so that I could stay home....

XLMIC said...

This cracked me up!

Adam said...

UGGGGG. Can I change the DMV too? Once every year is WAYY too much.

Colleen said...

I'd make cookies be as healthy as a salad... ;)
