Steve Martin says those French have a different word for everything. Why would they do that anyway? Isn’t English hard enough by itself?
I read a scientific study that said the only good thing the French ever did was invent the blow job. I can’t recall exactly where I read it. It was either The New England Journal of Medicine or Mad Magazine.
My daughter has called SEVERAL times in the last few months to remind me her birthday is coming up. I don’t mind that as I do it myself (maybe that is where she got the concept – I wonder if it is genetic or learned). I don’t expect anyone to remember my birthday, I will tell them as the time approaches. And I will send a series of cards letting them know the stores where I’m registered for gifts.
On about the 7th call a few weeks ago I asked what she wanted. She said she couldn’t think of anything. Great say I, why don’t I do a painting of that Frog tower you asked for 5 years ago. Within the hour she called back saying she had thought of something. I said, too late, I’m doing the painting. She said, well ok, that could be the gift from me, but there was still mom. Now that kind of thinking has to be genetic.
I still have work to do on the tower, trees, bushes, etc. so I’m likely to miss the deadline again this year. I hope mom got her something.
