The 52 other items don't work, and the yoga pants don't fit my alpaca. Can you connect me to customer service?

Bob, you need to get into your Downward Dog position, breath, and try to relax. If that doesn't help, call 1-800 - WHAT'SMYMANTRA?

You know what you could buy? A bench scrapper and perhaps a floppy cutting board, or a package of them in different colors. To color-code your kosher or your halal kitchen.

Because here's the thing. The scraper is very useful for clearing a mess quickly, and the flexible cutting board is thin and works also as a very good sizing device and carrying tray.

So you can roll out dough to the size of the flexible board and stick it in the freezer. Fold the dough and roll it again to the size of the flexible board.

For one person, one stick of butter goes with one cup of flour and one apple makes four incredibly flaky apple turnovers. That are mostly flaky crust with a thin layer of perfectly conservatively sweetened and seasoned diced apple.

You can only reasonably eat two, and that's half a stick of butter right there. And they must be eaten quickly. They're large. So two are given away. Twice. To two separate places. And I go, "Now share." And they do. And I'm not there to see it. So later, which is now, up to five or six people who I do not know, perfect strangers to me, have asked me, "Are you the guy who made apple turnovers?" And I go, "YES!" One of them was one of two guys who delivered the washing machine and dryer yesterday that I had no reason to expect.

Those turnovers sound tasty, Chip, but, honestly, right now, wot I'd rather have... is a meatball.

Today was my birthday. My husband, daughters & I had breakfast together, and my gifts included two Amazon gift cards which I spent through the Althouse portal. My younger daughter baked me a Kit Kat cake, and my husband & I watched "Skyfall."

We know how to live.

I know it has to be deleted, but "you appear to be what happens you are talking about!" may be my favorite spamism in quite a while.

What color yoga pants are you wearing?

phx said...

@Bob Ellison It looks like you wore the alpaca. You'll be assessed a cleaning and restocking fee.
