Where did that come from, or the power of memory revealed...

So last week my adult autistic/legally blind son and I were out enjoying a meal at Dairy Queen. We had finished eating and I was taking our table trash to the bin which was located behind my son when I heard him make an exclamation. When I turned around I saw that he had knocked over his large soft drink and the mess had gone onto the table, onto the chair where I had been sitting, and on the floor. The words that came out of my mouth were "Smooth move, Ex-Lax!" which is a phrase I learned in grade school back in the 1950s and which I'm sure I haven't thought of or used since then. I'm surprised at this feat of memory and wonder what other discoveries there are yet to make!

Woo Hoo!

After a month posting here I'm just over 400 posts. I don't really know if that's good or not but I'm happy that only one of those posts was rejected! (for justifiable reasons)

Language lesson of the day: Use the word "anecdote"properly

in a sentence: I almost died from an overdose of religion but fortunately the anecdote was
administered in time.

Hat tip to Mineral Man who posted "Knowing I will be chided, I'm going to relate a personal anecdote:"
in the Religion forum. I admit I'm feeling a bit giddy today, probably due to the latest news involving Flynn...
