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

August 12, 2022

This morning I read someone saying that something was as impossible as “uninstalling chess on a Mac,” which is apparently a thing.

But I was bleary-eyed when I was reading, so I first read it as impossible as “uninstalling cheese on a Mac.”

It Was Me

Oh, wait . . . right . . . *I* told them.

In Other Words, I Learned Nothing New About Myself This Particular Time

The other day L’s mother was wearing some sweatpants with a large “S” on the waistband in the back.

Do I really need to say any more?

Because Of Course I Did

Today, for reasons I don’t even pretend to understand, L’s Mother had a pair of socks in her back pocket this morning. The logical thing to do would have been to ask her why.

I went for the socksy joke.

To truly be counted among the wise,
you first have to take your own ad-vise.
