Good Thing Friday: 'isms.

I can't name names, but in my extended family, some are known more than others for messing up popular sayings - from accepted colloquialisms to popular proverbs to $5 vocabulary words. Among my friends, too, there is a certain someone who, in their excitement and love for life, sometimes ends up saying, "I feel like a pee horse!" instead of "I have to pee like a race horse."

Do you ever feel like a pee horse?

Last night provides today's Good Thing Friday - one part 'isms and one part chatting in bed while exhausted. One of my bosses has been out of town this week and my work schedule has been a tad lighter. I said to John, "I am going to tell you my secret from the day."

"Oh yeah?" he said.

"Yes... I took a nap in the middle of the day today for an hour. And ten minutes."

"Ha! Well, when the boss is away..."

"The cat will nap!"

Pause. Pause.

Me: "Wait! The mice will nap! Not the cat!"

John, laughing: "Yeah, because the cat naps all the time! Cats don't give a crap!"

(Disclaimer: cats aren't bosses here; in fact, my bosses never nap and regularly work 14 hour days. We were definitely going on literal facts only here.)

Happy Friday!
