QUOTE OF THE DAY (OR MORE): "No, no. You don't understand. This is an '89 Calico. I'm pretty sure that exceeds the Kelly Blue Book value. The cat's totaled." --A comedian whose name I forget talking about a vet who presents a $3,000 bill for a 12-year-old cat

Short, but Nonetheless Humiliating, Anecdote

Recently we were watching a movie with my boys in which a person is having a conversation on a telephone in a phone booth.

"You see, boys?" we explained. "That's how we used to have to make phone calls away from home before there were cell phones."

"Huh..." my 12-year-old mused. "Did you have to wait in a line sometimes?"

"Well, yeah," I recollected.

"Did you ever use a phone booth, Mom?"

"Uh-huh," I answered.

"You're that old?" he marveled.

    Fortunately Grasshopper is too young to have figured it out yet.


Please feel free to let me know what you think - especially if you like it. If not, please reconsider (just kidding!) I can take constructive criticism! Really I can...
