“Okaaaay,” I said, doing my best to brace myself.

Okay, I’ve stocked up on extra bananas and have promised banana daiquiris for all the monkeys at day’s end should we pull this day off.

It’s long been a staple of meditation practice to focus on or follow your breathing, but recently it occurred to me to wonder how do dead people meditate?

Because I Was Going Out For A “Walk-a Walk-a Walk-a”

Me: I get how rhyming slang can be fun and all that, but it seems like an unnecessarily convoluted form of self-amusement to me.

Also Me: Right. I’m heading out for a Fozzie!

I Also Suggested She Try Cold Turkey

“I love pumpkin patches!” L’s Mother said yesterday.

She gave me the oddest look when I replied that whatever helps her stop smoking pumpkins is probably a good thing.

I’ll Remember That

Sometimes cake for breakfast isn’t necessarily a bad idea if it reminds you that cake for breakfast isn’t necessarily a good idea either.

The Phrase Still Worked Though
