My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

Visit the Dr. Scholl's display at a drug store and pick up some Moleskin.

It's not a rubbing thing, it's a tight thing.

My computer has a virus: W32Netsky.P @mm that Norton says it caught and deleted, but it still crashes when I try to access my e-mail on Eudora.

Why is is that otherwise perfectly good delis serve awful pickles? What does a gal have to do in this town to get a decent pickle, other than go to a pickle specialty store???

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

"I'm not sure. Do I have to give you an answer now? I mean, I might be. Can I think about it for a minute? Am I alllowed to change my mind later? What if I make the wrong choice? I guess it depends on what you mean by decision-maker."

I always let them finish their schtick while showing interest and then say

" it sounds great and I am thrilled that you would consider offering this service to an undischarged bankrupt like me"

Jehovah's Witnesses are the best fun

There is always

One white/one black
One old/one young
One really gabby and one silent ( I think one is a ventriloquist and is working the other one " may I tell you about Christ my personal saviour while my friend here drinks a glass of water?")

The best way I have found to deal with them is when they say "may we come in and talk to you about your salvation" say " sure, come on in. I have just put the kettle on" at which point they go "you're a nutter" and leave
