I hate people who give directions like that. I've probably said similar stuff, but usually before the turn is done. I.e., "You can go right or left at Oakwood. Just depends if you like driving Michigan Avenue or I-94. I used to prefer Michigan Avenue but when it was under construction I got used to 94." Yeah, I'm wordy, what of it? ;-)

Ahh yes--we have a similar deal here we call Dinner time: Whats for dinner? I don't know--anything--what do you want? How about burgers?
Nahhh no burgers.
Ugh!
I sympathize!!

This was so funny. Except change it around and I'm the one driving, Mr.T is the one who is saying 'you CAN go either way' blah blah - Usually he ends up saying 'Well you didn't ask the right question then, because you CAN go either way, you could CHOOSE either direction... either way is fine, but you didn't ask "Which was the most direct route".

This makes me throw things at him.

"I hate people who give directions like that."

My wife does that ALL the time. Drives me crazy!


"Hahahahahaha! Excellent Mr. S. I'm sure you can hear me laughing from there."

When laughter travels that great a distance, it sounds more like "Ho! Ho! Ho!"

Thanks for the guffaws, Lord Loser.


"I don't know--anything--what do you want? How about burgers?
Nahhh no burgers."

Oh, yeah, you've been there, Henry, I can tell.


"Usually he ends up saying 'Well you didn't ask the right question then, because you CAN go either way, you could CHOOSE either direction... either way is fine, but you didn't ask "Which was the most direct route.'"


Mrs. T, now I want to throw something at him.

My friends do that in the city, and it drives me crazy. I wouldn't ask you where to go if you weren't holding the map! AUUGGGHHH!

Reminds me of hubby and me. Scary, but I think a lot of couples do this.

I just saw your three paragraph post and I feel bad. Sometimes I just don't have time for long posts so I have to skim.

I also wanted to mention I don't do audio books. I do however LOVE Dickens and Irving. I had no idea Irving loved Dickens when I started reading him though.

(See? I firmly believe you can say a whole heckuva lot in 3 paragraphs.)

I forgot something though... I do have to chastise you over one thing:

" First in a series of occasional cartoons."

I believe that should read, "First in a series of weekly cartoons."

The Mrs. often asks, "Why are you going this way?" But then she tries to salvage innocence by saying, "I'm just curious, that's all."

If I'm driving, then we go my way, unless I don't know how to get there.

Well, however you do it, I really like it a lot. Great artwork, and so imaginitive. Did you get any critical feed back from Jason on your short story? I asked him for some on mine and he gave me some good advice. My first paragraph was too wordy. Imagine that huh? But he offered a rewrite that worked much better.

No! Don't feel bad! That was good advice! And remember that I reserve the right to get as wordy as I want when the spirit takes me.


"I believe that should read, 'First in a series of weekly cartoons.'"

I'll try. I suddenly have a lot of ideas, and I told the family to help me out.


"If I'm driving, then we go my way, unless I don't know how to get there."

that's what we do too. And my wife hates all my routes because they're not fancy enough.


"Did you get any critical feed back from Jason on your short story?"

No I didn't. Maybe I should.



Thanks for the chuckle of support, Boo.
