~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THINGS MOMS WOULD PROBABLY NEVER SAY
How on earth can you see the TV sitting so far back?"
"Yeah, I used to skip school a lot, too"
"Just leave all the lights on. . .it makes the house look more cheery"
"Let me smell that shirt - Yeah, it's good for another week"
"Go ahead and keep that stray dog, honey. I'll be glad to feed and walk him every day"
"Well, if Timmy's mom says it's OK, that's good enough for me."
"The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It's not like I"m running a prison around here."
"I don't have a tissue with me. . . just use your sleeve"
"Don't bother wearing a jacket - the wind chill is bound to improve"

A young man in the rear raised his hand and answered, "A basketball coach?"

Freshen the air in your car.
Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.
Clean baked-on food from a cooking pan.
Put a sheet in the pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The antistatic agents apparently weaken the bond between the food and the pan while the fabric softening agents soften the baked-on food.
