Deep thoughts by Jack Handey. . .er, mammamilk

1. Why do doctors always start their explanations out with "so"? You ask a question, such as, "Why does my son need this surgery?". The doctor begins his sentence, "So, surgery is necessary because. . ." Why add the "so"? It is completely superfluous.

2. We have a Jesus Mii on our Wii. We also have an Obama, an Elmo, and an old, wrinkly, fat Mii the children have named Prunes. When the kids are playing games, they will shout out "I just passed Obama!" or "There's Jesus!". It's vaguely disconcerting. I suggested (repeatedly) that having a Jesus Mii might be sacrilegious, but was apparently not heard.

3. The sun is shining today, for the THIRD day in a row. Yes, you read that right. If you are from around here, you know that is a stinkin' big deal. The sun NEVER shines here during the winter. Everyone can feel their moods being lifted.

4. My dear first born is turning 10 in 2 weeks. She is beyond excited to be "a decade, double digits, the big 1-0!". I am so proud of her, but am having trouble believing it is here already. When I am missing her sweet baby days, however, I need only look to her little sister to be reminded of them. The two look amazingly similar.

I believe that is Jack Handy no e.

Well on second thought maybe the e is correct. I will have to put some deep thoughts into the matter.

Okay, now I want an Obama Mii. I'd love to beat him sometime at some game. And I might have to get me one of those Prunes Miis, too. It will make me feel better about myself. My Mii has an open-mouthed smile "so that when I'm 'panting' it still looks like I'm not."
