Thanks, but don't waste you time. He can't add 1+1 so I highly doubt he can do 2013-2007 and come up with 6. Not sure he understands that a decade is 10 years either. See when I said "for a decade" how he translated that into "decadeS." I suppose it's my fault for not telling every single thing about my private life, and the life of another person right up front. Nothing like privacy or anything.

I keep forgetting...

The local free newpaper (and I use that term lightly) featured pumpkin flavored brews and I immediately thought of Angela/Nick.

So here goes.

Sourthern Tier Pumpking: One of the most popular bottle sof pumpkin beer out there, this vanilla-and nutmeg-laced imperial ale sneaks up on you at 8% ABV.

Big Muddy Brewing Pumpkin Smasher: Brewed in Murphysboro, IL this beeri is made with sweet and savory spices and plenty of malt.

Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale: Hoppier than most other pumpkin beers, this ale is a good bet for transitioning out of warmer temperatures.

O'Fallon Pumpkin Beer: Like pumpkin pie in a bottle, this version has a pumpkin backbone (whatever that means!) with a hefty dose of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

Tommyknocker Small Patch Pumpkin Harvest Ale: Once temperatures drop a bit, this brown ale with molasses, spice and pumpkin will taste even more seasonally appropriate.

OK, now I can recycle this and wish Nick happy drinking!

You're right, hats. As Matthew 5:44 says, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you.

Here's something. I'm sure we discussed this after it happened, but I side with the zoo.
I agree...another case of an inability to take responsibility for the mother's action....We desperately need Tort Reform in this country....

If I chugged everytime I heard the word awesome i'd be dead of alcohol poisoning. At least 10 times in a recent show.

The nerve that Chel has to question someone with a placard that just does not "look" handicapped to her is utterly astounding.
And I was right.
It wasn't hers and she had no use for it at all.
I have seen more astounding things than a women politely (I was never rude) talking to a lady who is abusing the system.

Like I said, I don't care if you are right or wrong in your assumption, I don't take kindly to strangers with no authority questioning me as if I owe them any sort of answer. HAve a problem with something I might be doing? Call a cop. Call a security guard. Call someone who might actually have some authority. Otherwise, zip it and move along.

Regardless of the gentle words or soft tone you used, this IS rude. Asking a perfect stranger to explain their handicap to you? How do you not find that rude?

We don't actually need tort reform. It's been insanely exaggerated. Torts aren't clogging up the system.
