Well, Sniff has gone to get his braces off. If the before and after pics are posted, you'll know he was fully triumphant. But for now, them chicks ain't hatched, cuz we all know that sometimes Orthodontists who say "you'll get your braces off sooner if you wear metal head gear to school" are like Contractors who say "your house should be done by Christmas" are like Doctors who say "you need only gain 20-25 pounds in your pregnancy" are like magazines with articles about how women have the same "desire" as men are like Weight Watchers who say"nothing tastes as good as thin feels" are like manufacturers making tags stating one size fits all are like super centers that say "the customer is always right" are like ice cream cartons that say a "serving size is 1/2 cup" are like movie stars who say they "haven't augmented anything" are like...well anyway...they lie.
So in the meantime, I got another call from daughter, anxious to tell me about yet one more playground injury! This time she jumped off the jungle gym and landed SIDEWAYS ON HER FOOT, PEOPLE!
SO. MUCH. PAIN. AND. AFFLICTION. HEAPED like fertilizer upon one small, helpless, frail set of limping shoulders.
Also posting my first beautiful yellow rose of the season. And I don't know about any of you, but I can't say the word ROSE without saying STUPID first.
So Thanks a lot, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet and the sinking Titanic and James Cameron and Nearer My God to Thee and The Heart of the Ocean and inappropriate boobage in an otherwise magnificent film.
