10 Lists of 10 Items for the Last 10 Days of 2010

10 Carrots I Have to Dangle
(I don't know how to make the title sound more or less inappropriate)

This carrot idea comes from a meeting/brainstorming thing I listened to.  A token economy is a form a behavior modification.  Generally, it's used in a mental institution/hospital.  The objective is to increase desirable behavior and decrease undesirable behavior with tokens.  Or carrots.  Or rewards.  Whatever you want to call them, it still creates a "token economy."

It's quite relatable to the fake bunny that goes around the race track to get the horses, or dogs, or whatever, to run.  Or dangling a carrot in front of a horse.  I think.

During this "meeting/brainstorming" thing, a comment was made that the carrots we're putting out there just aren't drawing any attention.  Despite that information, I'd like to list 10 carrots I have to dangle in front of, pretty much, the general world population.
  1. I can make a mean Swedish Pancake
  2. I can be the pinch hitter in almost any game, non-athletic of course
  3. I have excellent ideas for pets' names and outfits
  4. I can do the "Aunt Fanny Dance" until the sun goes down
  5. I write a blog for my own amusement
  6. My organizational skills are awesome, when I use them
  7. I know stuff about finances, even if I'm not living proof of how it works
  8. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I can roll garments so well that (no offense) a blind, one-legged person could get dressed in 3.8 nano-seconds every day
  9. You might get a text from me with the word poop instead of poor or fart instead of fast by accident
  10. I'm pretty good at just sitting around with no expectations for entertainment
