    My sister. Why she apparently thinks I must "do something" about a current medical dilemma our mother is facing (appointments, testing, surgical location sites) when I'm 1250 miles away. Both were supposed to move *here* as permanent residents years ago. That didn't happen. My husband's also refused to relocate. If they're not here and I'm not there...

    Sister sort of resents me for burden of our elderly mother falling on her. I told mother to move here (I'd look after her). Unless my husband should suddenly change his mind (we move) or we get divorced (won't happen), I guess sister is stuck.
    Dip me in ink and toss me to the Poets.

    Do I live in M.C. Escher's house?
    It's true I don't hear the expression "go up the hall" very often. Very P.G. Wodehousian, that.

    (Post inspired because he's on Good Morning America right now.)

    The Seal song "Kiss from a Rose". Covered by darn near everyone. I kept hearing it on the radio and the lyrics seemed to make no sense. So I looked them up. They don't make any sense when you read them, either.

    I think I remember him stating that this was intentional, and that he would refuse to give and/or explain them. He made me LOL when performing this song in the Discovery Shark Week teaser this year, though.

    It's been suggested that the name should be changed to "handegg".

    The game is still played on foot, not on horse (or on hand). And the ball is nothing like an egg; that's rugby you're thinking of.

    Lemuel Gulliver might point out there's no end more or less pointy than the other. (In either sport).
    Measure once, cut twice. Practice makes perfect.
