If an auctioneer stuttered, do you think you'd notice?
My dad was friends with an auctioneer who stuttered! He was perfect when working, but could barely get a sentence out when speaking normally.
I knew it! Thanks

True, but not by much.
Why do you drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?
Have you also noticed that you put garments in a suitcase & suits in a garment bag?

Everyone should believe in something...I believe I'll have another beer.

With reports of snow, higher-higher is losing it's collective mind. So with that in mind:
"When in danger or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout."
"May you live in interesting times."
