Today I learned that when purchasing generic products, read the labels very, VERY carefully!

Which one is the generic Pledge furniture polish, and which one is the generic PAM cooking spray? No wonder the quiche I baked last night made me sick!!!

Today I learned that if you put your mind to it, you can find very creative ways to stave off defeat... at least for a while.

I was shooting hoops with a friend at a local park and we decided to play H.O.R.S.E. Keep in mind, I'm pretty sure the Clinton administration was just taking office the last time I touched a basketball, so my chances at hanging one in the "W" column were not good to start with. So before I know it, I'm a H.O. (insert haha), then a H.O.R. (insert more haha), until finally I'm at H.O.R.S.E. BUT-- never fear, my creative juices started to flow, and I suggested we play H.O.R.S.E.S. Ha! I lost the next shot, BUT WAIT-- I then suggested we play H.O.R.S.E.S.T.! I still lost, but oh well... I was able to prolong the game, had it been possible to mount a comeback, plus my English teacher mother would probably be pretty proud of me using suffixes to try and win. And now I can look at myself and say, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the horsest of them all?" :-)
