I attended a song-writing workshop this past week. Our presenter started out with, "Can anyone give me a starting line for a song?" The woman next to me raised her hand high, waiting to be called on for her suggestion. Thing is, our presenter has been blind since birth.

I woke this morning with a sore throat. It hurt to swallow. It hurt to talk. So I pantomimed to my husband my situation. He got a silly grin on his face, and then started doing a jig around the house, singing out loud, "I can talk without being interrupted. I can talk without being interrupted."

Traveling down the road, DH wanted to know what a BOGO chicken was. I laughed, confessed I didn't know the first time I'd seen those letters either, then explained it wasn't a type of chicken, but stood for Buy One, Get One. The display of my worldly knowledge only confused him further. "If you pay for a chicken, don't you get one -- the one you bought?"
So... we have decided that BOGO should actually be BOGOF, although that may be confusing to others. It makes a lot more sense.

My husband and I were watching a series on DVD. It was near bedtime. There were two episodes left in the two-year series. Should we be foolish and stay up to watch those two, or be wise and get ready for bed?
I was too tired to decide. Apparently, so was he. “Let’s flip a coin,” I suggested. Of course, neither of us had a coin on us, so that meant one of the potatoes getting off the couch just to find a coin to make a late night press-the-button-or-not decision.
On the table next to me was a clean dinner knife I hadn’t used for a snack. “I’ll flip the knife. If it lands on the rug pointing towards the TV, we’ll watch it; if it lands pointing towards us, we’ll go to bed.” At that very logical-to-me solution, there were some threats about what might happen to me and the knife if it landed in the flat screen, but I courageously flipped it anyway. So, how did it land? Exactly perpendicular, i.e., sideways.
I know how we interpreted that, but how would you have?

Question: What would have happened if it had been Three Wise Women instead of men who came to see the Christ child?
Answer: they would have asked for directions, arrived on time, helped deliver the baby, cleaned the stable, made a casserole, and brought practical gifts.
