I called to reschedule The Child's orthodondist appointment for next week.

"You're going out of town?" politely inquires The Receptionist.

"Yes. I'm flying to Omaha to watch the series finale of 'Battlestar Galactica' with a gay guy".

There was a split-second of silence.

"Delores," I said, "You can't make this stuff up".

That's so funny! Please tell JP hello and I miss his special brand of bitterness! I'm stuck with my own bland...tasteless...generic brand bitterness. "Oh Geez"
heh, heh

YOU, my friend, CAN make this stuff up! Your imagination is exactly what I love about your blog.
Hey, I'm back from Rome - check out the political refugee scene at FreestyleVolunteer!

What a delightfully fun response. I wouldn't be sure how to respond either. Have fun.

Give JP a big breasted type of hug for me and tell him I am pissed that he has not visited but once. Damn kids.

Does a trip to Omaha come with a steak?

A video blob, Sage? Yes, I think that would be appropriate.

I certainly shall, MNF. And I thought you Minnesotans expressed your bitterness with more of a "Oh for Pete's sake".

That's a definite 'possibly' on the blob, Sling, but a 'for certain sure' on the manly hug.

Welcome home, FV! I'll be dropping 'round. I'm not making that up.

It's going to be super fun, Mom. I haven't seen my Poodle in over a year...long overdue.

JP, I thought you were cleaning the guest room...

Roger that Rosie. And after the big-breasted hug shall I ground him?

I know, Anonyba. But it's not like we'll be watching TV outside.

Anne, yup. It's on the list. Mostly because going to Omaha and not eating steak is sorta like skipping the salmon when you go to Seattle. And The Spouse wants me to wrestle a wild animal in front of the Mutual of Omaha building and my BIL wants me to look up the Oracle of Omaha. Lots to do. Besides watching BSG of course.
