Although both of my children had received fire-safety training at school, they did not respond to the alarm. Annoyed, I stormed through the house in search of them.
I found them in the bathroom, washing their hands.

“Do you know what that sound means?” I demanded.
Sure, my oldest replied. “Dinner’s ready”.
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ How much movie trivia can you answer?
What movie is this quote from??? “Freddy, as a younger man, I was a sculptor, a painter, and a musician. There was just one problem: I wasn’t very good. As a matter of fact, I was dreadful. I finally came to the frustrating conclusion that I had taste and style, but not talent. I knew my limitations. We all have our limitations, Freddy. Fortunately, I discovered that taste and style were commodities that people desired. Freddy, what I am saying is: know your limitations. You are a moron.”

I’m as plain to see as black & white.
I prefer to roam about at night.
Just don’t attack or startle me,
Or odiferous emissions may result, you see.
I’m an omnivore, yes it’s true.
But what’s my name? Tell me, do.
ANSWER: Yes, I’m a skunk, it’s plain to see.
Just black and white, yes that’s me.
Attack or startle me, and you’ll know
How far my stink can really go.
Plants & bugs I eat all sorts.
Just stay clear of me and my cohorts.
