It wasn't that bad a day, really

Emma and I chat idly in the living room as the children play around us. "I could..." I start, then get distracted and wander out to the front porch, leaving the sentence unfinished. Poor Emma is left in a state of astonished panic. She hadn't heard "I could", you see, but rather, "I quit."

I have said those words.

Not "I could..." but "I quit!"

But of course I didn't.

Misfit: Because you can't, can you? I don't mean that you're not allowed, or that you can't escape them, but you just can't. Not when it gets right down to it - and don't they make sure, some days, that it gets riiiight down to it??

Jungs: Who knows what the future holds, but let's hope you never do! This would put you in the 1.8% minority, by my very sophisticated polling methods.

Haley: You have not yet begun to fight: don't even have kids yet! Though some roommates can give you an early taste of it...

si: hiya.
