Flippin the Bird

"Flippin the Bird" is true. I swear. When I was a kid, there were lots of terms in common usuage that I didn't 'get.' Thing like "Don't get your knickers tangled" or "my dogs are barkin'" left me scratching my head since I had no idea what 'knickers' were and there wasn't a dog in sight.

I like the "Bob's your Uncle" term, not real sure what it means, but it sounds funny.

I love that you are sharing some of your Shriek columns with us all on a blog. I hope some of your fans will also read For Shrieking Out Loud, you new book full of the best columns. How I love it.

Some might also be interested in my book of family-oriented true stories (albeit much more serious) called Harkening. Learn about it and my other writing at www.howtodoitfrugally.com.

Oh, and while everyone is surfing around, check out Joyce's and Pat's serious work, The Sunchon Tunnel Massacre.
