I have questions
I have a real post, with photos, words, stories, etc. I've been trying to post it for days, but things just keep tripping me up.
So here's another quick post, with some questions that I want answers to...
- Why does a new shovel handle cost more than a new shovel? Same goes for axes and other tools. Insanity.
- Why does drinking tea make me thirsty? How is that possible? The more I drink, the thirstier I get.
- Why does ginger, a noted stomach soother, give me terrible heartburn? Ginger ale, gingerbread cookies, certain ethnic foods... I drank a ginger beer at a Sri Lankan restaurant when we lived in Cincinnati, and I thought I was going to die like Kane in Alien.
- How can my five-year-old out-smart me from time to time? Am I dumber than a five-year-old? Wait, don't answer that.
- What will be the next farm-oriented cliche that comes to life at our house? We've already experienced the literal versions of such classics as playing chicken, kick the bucket, and no use crying over spilled milk.
Now just to balance things out a tiny bit... wait, can you balance something a tiny bit? Isn't it kind of all or nothing? Sorry. Just to change things up a bit, I'll give you an answer to a question I'm sure you've been losing sleep over:
What is the collective noun for skunks? You know, like a pod of whales or a pride of lions. I thought a passel of skunks sounded good, but that's not the answer.
I'll give you a second....
There are actually two correct answers....
And both are surprisingly appropriate....
Well, you can either have a surfeit of skunks, or a stench of skunks. Possibly both.
Ask me how I know...
Okay, now you can sleep soundly tonight, secure in the knowledge that you can talk about a group of skunks properly. I think those same two collective nouns apply to attorneys too, so there you go.
