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

Who's on first?


The 13-year-old was doing some last-minute studying for his French quiz on the way to school this morning....


13-year-old: "Mom, what does 'quoi' mean?"


me: "what."


13-year-old: "quoi."


me: "what."


13-year-old: "Quoi, Mom..."


me: "It means 'what,' son."

  2. My brother went over to see if the neighbor boy could "Come out and play."
    "Can he?!" I shouted as he returned.
    "What?"
    "Can he?" I asked when we were face-to-face.
    "What?"
    "Can he?" I repeated.
    "What? What? What?" he insisted.
    My brother's name is Kenny.

  6. I had a Chinese friend whose last name was Hu, pronounced like 'who,' who was in Who's Who. He played the violin, not baseball.

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...
