Is cereal soup? Why or why not? No: no mirepoix.
What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”? To the question "How are you?": my stepfather used to answer "well, John, have you got an hour?" I had a manager once who answered "terrible." Famous Chicago-area disk jockey Larry Lujack would say "About average." I have, on occasion, given a full medical report, which was probably the last thing they wanted.
If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask? I’d want to know what she calls us, mostly. I mean, we call her Molly, also Molly-Toots, Molly-pop, Jolly Molly Orange, and I call her Molly Pepper, because, even they looked nothing alike, she reminded me of our cat Pepper. Come to think of it, I’d want to know what our other cats’ real names were.

GRATITUDE SECTION: I went to see my lymphedema specialist today, and she told me that they now have inflatable leg wraps that do the same sort of thing she does, so that I could keep the swelling down without having to spend a month going to her and having her massage my leg. She said that she works with a company that sells them, and that she would write up the paperwork so I’d have a good chance of having Medicare pay for the whole thing. She also told me that they now have a bunch of lymphatic drainage specialists on staff, including a young woman that worked with me when I was doing pool therapy for my knees. God has blessed us with good therapists.
See you in the funny papers!
