Sorry to interrupt all you Scandinavians, but I have an amusing Brokieism that cropped up. Climbing buddy Offline Chuck and I were canyoneering over in Utah this past weekend. I had obtained my son's climbing harness that I bought him a few months ago, and I was lending it to Chuck to use while rappelling. He took it out of the bag and observed that the price tag was still on it, so I said I figured all those times when my son and his girlfriend went out to do some rock climbing that "they didn't go up there to fish" and we both laughed!!
:laugh:
Good one, Lee!

Just before I went home from work today, I went to the postroom to leave some letters.
There was a funny and not very pleasant smell in there, and I was just about
to say: "this place smells like cat piss or worse."   ;D

But I caught myself. I don't think it would have gone over very well with my co-workers....   ::)

My son has been getting in trouble lately. Today I was casting about for solutions to the problem, and (very) briefly considered the possibility of sending him out to stay with my brother. Then I remembered that, among other complications, my brother's work takes him out of the country very frequently, in fact maybe close to half of the time.

But the way I thought of it was,

He's not set up for that.

Thanks. It's a measure of how deep Brokieisms go, I think, that even when I no longer think about BBM on a daily basis, the right set of circumstances can still cause one to pop right up. Probably always will.
