Another one of my pals from LOOOOONG ago, middle school and high school, has resurfaced on facebook, and she is wonderful just like my pals Wendy and Mary Beth (I guess I hung out with a lot of girls when I was a kid, not girlfriends, just girls who were friends---all of them beautiful and smart---and I suppose if you looked at my bloggy pals, you would see it is still true). Sarah reminds me that I had a nickname, origins unclear, perhaps from Mary Beth: Rithkins.
So my little Turtledove says to me this morning:
"Hey, you got the TP just right!" I suppose I had a 50/50 chance...
"W goes to the doctor who tells him he has a right brain and a left brain. 'But wait!' W says, 'everybody has a left brain and a right brain!' to which the doctor replies
'but in your case, in the left brain there's nothing right, and in your right brain, there's nothing left'"
