A is for Age - further the deponent sayeth not--I try not to think about it-but old enough to remember the later sixties.

C is for Career - Editing
D is for Dadís name - James
E is for Essential items to bring to a party - anything with coconut

Offered to a Co Worker

| | Comments (1)

A coworker said to me this morning, "We've got so much to do, I'm panicking." Actually it sounded more as we say thinks as "We've got so much to do I'm pannikin."

So I told her, "Young Panicking Skywalker, use the force wisely lest you become Darth Editor."

The movie may or may not be worth much, but at least it gave me that line.
