    I remember doing this! My pants were usually too long for me so it helped keep them up!

    I have one of these! It's like a turtle neck and in black and very stretchy and I never have to worry about it coming 'untucked'. Yes, bathroom time takes a little longer but I love mine!

    I stand corrected, you're actally OLDER than I was giving you credit for.


    (man, you'd think someone would be flattered you thought they were younger than they actually are. Some people. )


    The fad I am most tired of today is the snobby coffee people that order something really complicated in front of me in line (when I ONLY want a cup of regular coffee, no decaf, soy skim, mocha latte cappichino, hold the whipped cream, but please add cinnimon sprinkles)

    Try ordering a cup of tea in Starbucks sometime . The look on the "barrista's" (again, ) face. I've had to do a mental backtrack to confirm to myself that I hadn't, indeed, ordered sarsparilla or mead.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    ?? Dinosaurs pre-date my early education, per post KK#5118. Assuming that I started my educational career on schedule, how could I have had a dinosaur for a pet? I'm not a Flintstone! I hope your coffee was cold.

    I only seem to be digging myself deeper, so I'll shut up now.

    I seem to have developed severe brain fartitous today.
    I think need a nap to help heal that problem.
