To Ms. Giffords: May she fully recover.

(How's that for toast?)

wv: ovulav (for those moments when you want to get pregnant?)

Palladian said...

Toast or a toast?

She deserves both.

k*thy said...

Wish her well. It's a good place to start...

AllenS said...

A lot easier to say than Leinenkugel.

TMink said...

Praise God. Here is praying for continued miracles.

I'm glad to hear that she has made that step and hopefully she will continue to improve. Often the simplest of words, expressions or movements are the most meaningful.

DADvocate said...

Yeah, toast!!!

Palladian said...

Maybe it was actually "[The scumbag who did this to me is] toast" but she only got out the last word.

The Crack Emcee said...

She's hungry - wonderful!

After she's mastered the BRAT diet, she can move on to intellectually inert brats.

MadisonMan said...

Excellent news to read.

Sofa King said...

Tomorrow: four fried chickens, and a Coke.

rhhardin said...

I don't recall her ever having said anything interesting.

edutcher said...

Ditto with Palldian.

She's come a very long way in a short time.

Mark said...

This is an excellent sign. Good luck to the Representative from Arizona's Eighth.

EDH said...

Oh no, may indicate Tape Worm.

Todd said...

Toast is good. Get her some good toast. Stat.

Trooper York said...

This is just not true.

She first woke up and spoke when the President visited her.

And she asked for Pancakes.

Trooper York said...

It was in all the papers.

If Mort was awake he would say it is racist.

I take that as very good news, especially since the damage was reported to be to the area of the brain that effects speech.

With a head injury, I would probably ask for something that did not require a lot of chewing.

PaulV said...

sweet potato bread toast?

sunsong said...

Wonderful news!

Leland said...

Poor dear. With all this cold, wet, rainy weather; she must have thought she was in London. Sorry Gabby, you're in Houston. How about some bacon or sausage?

David said...

Compare and contrast: (1) Ms. Giffords (2) Toast.

Rep. Giffords is not Toast, folks.

Give her all she wants, with sugar, cinnamon, cherry jam and creamy butter from cows that jump over the moon.

She has a long way to go.

Thank God!

You're wondering why she asked for toast? I am irresistably reminded of this little story:

Albert Einstein was 4. He was eating dinner and exclaimed suddenly 'Die Suppe ist zu heiss' and his parents responded 'Oh Albert you can talk. Why have you never talked before ?' And he said "Bis jetzt war alles in ordnung."

LarryTheOlder said...

Great news!

The human brain is a wonder to behold. Some people have lived and functioned fine with only one hemisphere.

DADvocate said...

FLS - How come Einstein spoke German and his parents spoke English?

Methadras said...

Truly a miracle that this woman survived such a wound. However, I'm beginning to see the leftards use her as an anointed saint.

etbass said...

Dem Veep candidate in 2012?

etbass said...

Dem VP candidate in 2012?

Big Mike said...

No, no, no! What she really said was, that bastard that shot me is toast as soon as I get out of this bed and grab my 9mm.

Clyde said...

If it had been John Kerry, he would have asked for French toast...

Steve Burri said...

Big Mike beat me to the toastee.
