I’m pretty sure my mom wouldn’t want me to post this snippet from an e-mail she just sent, but how could I not?

“Oh, that reminds me. I asked Matt [AJS note: my younger bro] if he wanted some carrot and/or zucchini bread, and he said he would love some. Would you like a loaf also? Which kind? Name your bread type, and I’ll fix it up on Saturday and mail it out. You can put it in the freezer.”

I love the word “loaf.”


I’m a little disappointed that Senator Kerry didn’t take a white glove from his waist pocket and, in the most civilized way possible, slap President Bush roundly across the cheek. Maybe next debate?
