Recent conversation with Brenda:

me: (watching baseball) Do you realize how filthy professional baseball players are?

Brenda: Not first-hand, no.

me: Look at these guys. Spitting nut seeds all over the place, spitting tobacco juice anywhere they please, adjusting their cups constantly...

Brenda: I'm not sure Michael Jackson ever had a need to wear a cup, if you know what I'm saying.

Me and Al Bundy

Recently, Brenda made the mistake of asking me to fix the toilet. It seemed to have gunk in the thingy that supplies the water and would only filll if I poked it with a paper clip in the spout thingy. You can tell I'm a semi-professional because of all the technical jargon. Go »
