I agree--except perhaps from that verb "suffer"

It more reminds me of the (former) ads for various products: New and Improved. Now with 50% more product!

(On the other hand, was there ever a product that was "New and debased"?)

Life is what happens when you're making other plans.

I've said it to many people and possibly even here.

When it comes to being fair to everyone, you still have to be fair to yourself.

Take care of family business, we'll be here for ya.
I hope you and your Dad will be well.

Prayers for your family and your father. We can wait for as long as it takes. That- rather than the strip is much more important to you and yours.

Many years ago - when it was funny and at least nominally aimed at a mental age greater than 13 (max) - MAD did a feature in which they considered "New and Improved" marketing and speculated on what honest original labels might be like:

"Old Unimproved Tang! Instant drink that tastes vaguely like citrus! Someday we may make it taste better!"

No worries, Mr Pablo. Go take care of your Pops. We still have plenty to gnaw over anyway. Not to mention, the long, long line for the hugs. I think some of us have managed to line up multiple times.

I doubt it. It is distracted watching Monica. I don't think it heard me. In fact it is probably trying to get first place in the line forming for the hugs.
Ambush questions are fun. Watching the mental impact of them as they distort, or crumble, opinions based on faulty logic.

He left the band-aid off Monica's leg.

Sending some good vibes through the ether for your father, Paul. Best of luck on that.

She doesn't nick her leg every time she shaves. (and with the new JG form, she's getting a lot of practice at that...)

I swear, Monica's band-aids are like Tina's choker.

Paul swears that keeping her head from falling off is not why Tina wears the choker.

Maybe it is hiding the scars from the reattachment sutures?? :twisted: :roll:

There is the traditional use of a choker to hide the adam's apple.
