I Wonder Where She Gets Her Sarcasm?

You know how picky I can be, right? Eler Beth was doing some geometry today, and I reminded her that you always put a period at the end of the abbreviation for "inch". And then I reminded her that you never use a period at the end of any metric abbreviation. She was writing "cm", so I said (with emphasis), "Never, ever, put a period after 'cm'."

She answered, "What! Will they sue me if I do?!"

Hi Lori - In reference to your inquiry as to Panjandrum's use of catnip, it is a definite medical necessity to use the closest drug available when interacting with kittens. The alternative, which can also be applied to rap music, is to stick a pencil in your ear.

Although a bit painful initially, it helps you put up with the nonsense.

I bow to her teacher. Very, very good.
