I Like Quotes

I like quotes. Little quips from extremely clever people that are both memorable and (hopefully) apt. Judging from some of the things she said, Dorothy Parker was a HOOT. John Lennon apparently had a wicked sense of humor and a serious dark streak. I have said a few clever things, but I suspect the only person who'll be quoting me down the road is my son. Things like when I was trying very hard NOT to swear when describing to a friend what happened when a jerk mechanic tried to cheat me (Little pitchers have BIG ears and her little darlings were in earshot):

"He made some disparaging remarks about my probable parentage and heritage, so I made a suggestion as to an uncomfortable anatomical impossibility he could perform with the car."

Or in another instance how I told someone "Where to go, how to get there, and what to do when they arrived."

(NOT that I have a temper. Certainly not. Not ME.)

Like I say, the only person quoting me is liable to be my son James. But, hey, at least HE finds me funny. I really do love that kid.

Everybody have a great day.
