  • Irish Woman told me that all she wants for Valentine’s Day is a card and to go out on a date.  I took her word for it, but I took along a cyanide pill just in case.
  • If something is only important so long as I have to do all the work, then I guess it wasn’t that important.
  • If I say something and you pretend to not understand or hear until someone else repeats what I said word for word, then don’t come to me later and ask why I have an attitude problem.
  • Why, of course I need to do research on ancient Thracian auxiliary cavalry.  I’ve got nothing but time and energy to spare.
    • Related question – Any of you guys do Roman reenacting?
  • I know that Irish Woman will never be able to poison me through my breakfast, because so long as the dog doesn’t keel over from sniffing / licking it every morning, I’m good.
    • No, I have never eaten something I’ve witnessed the dog making physical contact with, but then I don’t watch my breakfast 100% of the time.
  • Girlie Bear thought it was hilarious when I told her that I never got into trouble as a private and was a model citizen and soldier.
    • That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. Nobody saw anything, and even if they did, I’m not going down alone.
  • It’s amazing how libertarian I become around tax time.

    (whispers very quietly, fearful of keen Irish ears, “light enough for junior would be warriors to learn their trade, under the benign gaze of the Minivandian”…..)
