Ahhh, this word has been used to describe me so often.

BTW, ask Kathy N.(at church Sunday) if she has a goody for you from me. I saw something and had to get it for you!!

I have just finished reading the posts on this page and I have to admit I laughed out loud several times. You are absolutely the funniest thing since, since, well since whatever. I am trying to remember if I know you from wpsd but can't place you. Just as well I reckon. But please please keep up the oh so funny posts. I'm not kidding, I was ROFL! Did I really just type that?

Well, he didn't say it to her. I would have said the same thing probably. Though not to her either.

I hope you told him to shut up! I mean really, I NEVER say what I think out loud! (Fingers crossed behind my back!) I am not a very good liar either!
