Under the big top

Well, the fam is acting more like themselves today. A little vacation will do that. Here’s an example of “normal” at my house: I came downstairs to find Dad at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and the yellow pages. He immediately starts quizzing me on things like, “What do you call a group of jellyfish?” and “If you call a dog’s tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?” I thought he’d gone crazy until I tried to peek over his shoulder at the phone book and he slapped a hand over the page to hide the answers. I never noticed this before, but apparently our yellow pages have trivia tidbits on every page. I guess it’s just in case, after discovering that all the places that can change your tires are closed because it’s the day after Christmas, you might feel instead like finding out that a group of jellyfish is called a smack.

And in case you’re curious, the dog still has just four legs because, according to Abraham Lincoln, calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it so. We also learned that a group of crocodiles is a float and when a bunch of emus get together, it’s called a mob. Large numbers of emus must be a lot scarier than I ever realized.

    I am just truly inspired as well as your ability as a copywriter along with using the structure for your website. Is this your paid theme or even does one customize this oneself? Anyhow continue being inside the awesome premium quality producing, it is actually unheard of to see an excellent blog such as this one as of late.
