    I don't know.

    I'm Lost. Can you help me find --------?

    According to the directions here...

    I have enough tools/guns/fishing rods.

    I need more that 4 pairs of shoes/boots. (Hunting/fishing boots do not count - but then they are replaced each season)

      -and by women:


      I have WAY too many shoes/purses.

      Please don't get me any of those overpriced roses for Valentine's Day.

      Thank you for waiting the day after Mother's Day to get me that card at 50 percent off.

      Why don't we invite someone interesting to our next get-together instead of my mother?

          I'll have you know I specifically asked DH not to buy me roses for Valentine's Day!

          I asked for tulips.

            LOL!

            I get a laugh every Valentine's Day when I see a herd of guys looking like lost sheep in a store gazing quizzically at candy, flowers, or a stuffed bear. You would think if they picked up the wrong item it would detonate.

            Oddly enough, Israel is a leading EXPORTER of tulips. I seem to recall seeing a web video of a refrigerated cargo planeload of them going to - Holland?

            But, I know you only asked for tulips within your DH's easy driving distance.

            I thought my wife was being practical when she asked me not to get her expensive roses. She even said she would pick up the cheapest flowers at the flower shop, and would drive there herself to pick them up. Trouble was, she wanted to drive there in a new BMW.

                Well he DID have to have them delivered. He was out of town on a business trip. But tulips are my absolute favorite flower so it is always what I ask for.

                    Well, that's better that the comment I made to a guy just hit by a seagull;

                    Pardon me sir, but do you realise you have gray p.........



                    Awesome Flowers!

                    But I always rush to nab the first blossoms on the farm.

                      In all my years as a Pre-K teacher, I've never had a class where the kids just LOOK at me when I talk to them like my class this year does. It's not as bad now as it was at the beginning of the school year, so I think it might have been partly a language issue (most of my class is Hispanic and probably speak Spanish at home, and my Spanish is improving but not conversational). One of my students, though, a cute little guy, has what I call the "cute trifecta" -- big brown eyes, long eyelashes, and dimples. It has kind of become a "thing" for him to look pointedly at me and just BLINK, prompting this false-irritated response from me:

                      "Stop BLINKING at me!!"

                          today's adventures in toddlerhood:

                          "Honey, please don't lick the dishwasher"

                          "Stop eating your oatmeal with your feet"

                              I think this comes under the title "local colloquialism".

                              "sweating like a hen drawing rails" One of my parents used to say this when they were working hard or it was hot weather.

                              "like pulling hen's teeth"- when a task was difficult.

                              "you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear."
