A Melissa-ism [May. 30th, 2006|10:00 am]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
My wife is famous for wonderful scrambled sayings, like the time she said that something was "the straw that took the camel's cake." Today we were discussing our European itinerary with our son Sean, and he mentioned staying an extra night in Cologne so he could go see The Flaming Lips.

Two hours later Melissa asked about and referred to the Flaming Lips as "The Slapping Cardinals."

If anyone asks why I've been married for 25 years, among many other reasons, moments like that are right up there.

We're leaving today the 31st... we're not stopping in London this trip, but it's on my 'to do' list since I seem to be acquiring new UK mates. Catherine H -- a girl from the north who lives in Tottenham, came to Detroit at the last minute and crashed in my room. Her 'fellow' as she said, is Ken Odeluga, who Tristan knows...
