It was just a quote. I couldn't remember what product it was for. These days, adults are the only ones who use baby aspirin.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! OMG! *wheeze* Best laugh of the morning. Thanks vitauta!

Funny, I use the word "tool" as a perjorative. For example, "Stop being a tool!" I totally got where you were coming from vit.

My stray thought of the morning is, Why is it that when I have somewhere I have to be, I find the most entertaining stuff on the Net?

In that case, my husband allows me to mishandle his tools any time I want!

Second Vent! We are going to be visited by the "Friends of Suffolk Downs" to talk to us about the casino tonight at five p.m. It will be held down in the community room. Now this room is just big enough to hold only the residents and maybe a guest or two. What someone has not realized is that "The Friends" have been conducting a citywide phone calling thingy and inviting folks from all over Eastie to attend. I am going down, grab my food and sit in a corner to watch the mayhem. Someone didn't think this one out very well. I don't like the idea of folks just walking in off the street. Access to the apartments is just too easy.
Perhaps it's been thought out only too well. The "friends" have obviously hit on a way to pack the meeting and exclude locals who might object to the proposals

There was an episode of "Cagney and Lacey" when the lady policemen were helping to cater for a colleague's leaving party and spent every waking minute and part of the night making canolli by the dozen, only to find out when they delivered them that the party boy had requested canelloni !!!!
