I did so good on the first three and final jeopardy. Foreign foods from the Orient evade me.

You too? I sit here night after night answering Jeopardy questions all alone, and nobody cares. Although when Son #1 is here, we do complete. We may both know the answer, but he is quicker to respond. I tell him it is because I am very old and slower now with age. Or I just let him have that one. Because that is what mothers do. They let their child have the last piece of candy.
