Quip of the Week

17 11 2008

With apologies to Jason, who’s wonderful “Single Sentence Soup” feature is one of my favorites in the blog world, I present a new category–The Vinyl Village Quip of the Week.


And the first honoree is:

“You can have the Clown car, I’ll keep my Town car.”

Margaret and Helen discuss the Big Three Bailout. If you don’t know who they are, they’re a pair of opinionated octogenarians (?) who crack me up.

Hey, no apology needed! I’m just flattered that you like Single Sentence Soup! Which reminds me….I haven’t posted one for a while! It’s about time.

But aren’t clown cars an awful lot of fun. Way back when, before laws about seatbelts or car seats etc – while at my grandma’s house out in the sticks, someone would mention how much they wanted a greasy hamburger. (Oh, this was before cholesterol and bad fats, too) The place was called Latham’s but they had the best burgers! We would all pile into my aunt’s Impala and go to town. I remember one time there were 3 aunts and my mom in the front seat and 11 kids in the backseat!! It was a big car, but not that big!

Enjoyed reading Margaret and Ellen but it just doesn’t quite feel “right”. Just my gut that the grandson has a little more to do with it than just technical guidance. I hate getting old, bitchy and cynical but as long as I have no choice about the old, I might as well run with the bitchy and cynical.

Cuteasasa–I agree with ya…something there didn’t feel exactly like the 80-somethings I know, but Ill suspend my disbelief ’cause they crack me up.
