        Honestly, I don't understand the appeal of those places. Do NT kids really like them? I always thought they were dark and foreboding.

        all kids were happy. I, on the other hand wanted to find a corner to stay in. Tonight and tomorrow re-coop time. I've always hated those places.

        When our kids were at home, we rarely used their given names (which we also liked). It was always pet names. (Sometimes my wife would go through a list of names until she got to the right one...!)

        Even Erma Bombeck (a wonderful comic writer mom) used to talk about how she was always mixing up the names of her 3 kids. And her mother used to mix hers up and she was an only child. The line was, her mother would say "Edna! Ezra! Emily! How many times do I have to call you?" "Until you get it right. Why did you name me Erma anyway?" "Because it was easy to remember!"

      Letting out who you are around people and in private is a lot like letting out gas around people and in private. (I just had to say that.)

        True, but there's nothing like letting a silent-but-violent go in the vicinity of two people chattering away whilst blocking the supermarket aisle, then watching them wrinkling their noses at each other as they wonder if it was their gossipy chum that did it ;)

        Reminds me of once I was going to dinner with my best friend and had her sample a new perfume because I thought it was her I was smelling. She was so mad at me when she figured it out. lol

      Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty and the pig likes it. (just read that).

        Spock: Captain, why would anyone want to wrestle with a pig in the first place? It's not logical.

        I have noticed this same phenomena at various times and it is almost always noticeable when people are extremely obnoxious. But I am not feeling that way today so Pats, you have a nice day, despite what others may be like.
