Word Of The Day

One of the points of pride by my Wife is her abilities to come up with improvised solutions to unforeseen challenges. "I'm smarter than the average bear" is one of her pet expressions. That and "You can't always get what you want". I try to not take the latter one too personally.

Case in point: Wife decided she was going to make breakfast sandwiches with egg, ham, and cheese. Sadly, the egg poacher no longer wished to call our abode home, and had left for greener pastures some unknown time earlier. This left Wife in a conundrum on how to prepare the eggs. Her solution? Use ramekins for the eggs in boiling pot water.

"I'm smarter than the average bear," she said.

"Yes," I said. "you're smarter than a fur covered, highly mobile, easily irritated, claw wielding tank."

I've experienced her nails in my eyeballs. They are indeed claws.
