prennish ramblings...AGAIN?!

why mom? why wont she stop? yes. things occur to me and i must torture you with them.

1) asked chad if he needed a hand getting behind the tv to plug something in (he looked like he was struggling) he said "no. what i really need is longer eyes." aaaaahahahaha. cause he couldnt see behind the tv! i envisioned him with convienient snail eyes peering over the top of the tv while he plugged and unplugged things

2) had another snoozin' musin' yes thats what im calling those things that are totally random that pop into your head right before you fall asleep and its like a miracle if you remember them the next mornin even though you tell yourself you are "totally gonn look that up as SOON as you get up"

3) onto the snoozin' musin: that phrase "dont look a gift horse in the mouth"....doesnt it mean if someone is giving you a gift you should just shut up and take it and not ask a buncha questions? that
doesnt make any sense. isnt that refering to the trojan horse? it seems like those folks woulda been a bit better off if they HAD looked in that horses mouth cause it was FULL OF PEOPLE!

The horse comment i think relates to how they would tel the age of a horse. You would look in the mouth and check the teeth to see if you are getting an old nag or a young filly. That's fine if you are buying a horse and want to get what you're paid for, but to check out the quality or the horse in in front of the giver, by looking at its teeth (ie looking a gift horse in the mouth) then it is considered quite rude. That would be like receiving a gift and asking how much it cost.

Always look a gift cat in the mouth though. Cat dentistry is not cheap. *stares pointedly at Miss. Kitty*
