Brought it on MYSELF?

I was trying to thaw a turkey breast (so it would fit in the crock pot), which means changing the water every so often.  Then I had to bleach the sink, and do load the dishwasher, and finish up my jackets which were in the laundry.  I come into the living room, limping with "that look of miserable pain", and my… Read More

It was a predictable and understandable response. But, more often than not, the person they described either has a more… Read More
