Recent conversation with Brenda:

Brenda: (Looking through mailer) Would you like to go to Floyd's Barbecue?

me: Why would I want that?

Brenda: We could get $5.00 off any cut.

me: Any cut of what? (Looking at flyer for Floyd's Barbershop not Barbecue)

me: (Seeing picture of barber holding razor poised over a man's cheek) Looks like you can pick your own meat.

Brenda: Oh my God I need new glasses.

Loud, Louder, Standing Next To A Jet Engine

The appointment went well enough that we decided to take advantage of being in Baltimore by having dinner at the Hard Rock Café there. Go »
