And here I was waiting for a Depends joke. Of course I know you have more class than that, but ...

Very good definition, I have nothing to add.

~Karen said...


That's good because we have nothing to subtract.

Within two days I have become highly dependent on my new iphone.

Or is that co-dependent?

TLP said...

I hate to admit it: I've become dependent on the Saturday story. But I can wait. I guess. Don't worry about me. Sunday is fine.

I am dependent upon our Independence Day celebration to garner more hotdogs. Hope you get your share Doug.

The update sounds like a triad of very frivolous girls.

And one very "Messa" one!

I just might, Karen.

And a Trojan lawsuit, TLP.

Quilly, the question for parents, I suppose, is did they?

We're still money ahead, Thom.

Susan, you complete us.

Ariel, I was depending on it.

Karen, you and the mouse in your pocket?

Jenn, I think it's iPendent.

I know, TLP. I repent and mean to change my ways. Maybe next week.

Terry, we're doing ribs in Indiana. Ev'ry year, pretty much.

Nessa, the older I get, the harder it is to sound like everything else.

Karen, If Nessa's a messa, she's the bessa.

Every day, QB3.
