Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry your family went through that with your grandmother. I’m amazed that, under those circumstances, your mom (and mine, as well) were such great moms.

I used to HATE it when my mom was right (which was usually, TBH). Until I smartened up and realized I was getting solid-gold therapy for the low low price of a smooch and a “Thanks, Mom.”

As soon as I read “Guys and Dolls” I thought “This is about that ‘Marry the Man Today’ song.” I did that show in middle school and even back then—waaaaay back then, in the ‘70s--it squicked me out. Your mom was AWESOME to call it out, and kudos to you and your sis for remembering it.

HOLY. SHIT. I am so, so glad you listened to your own counsel. You sound like a great mom, and your daughter is lucky to have you.

Ian McKellan, Cold Comfort Farm: “THERE’LL BE NO BUTTER IN HELL!” The whole scene is fucking hilarious, but if you want to skip to the line, it’s at 2:04. I use it whenever anyone does something godless (I say it to myself at least 3 times a day).

It really is a great alternative to hectic holidays. And clients are so grateful to have somebody they can trust with their homes and beloved furbabies.

No, in the book, the shark gets Hooper as well as Quint. To paraphrase the movie—Hooper goes in the cage, cage goes in the water, Hooper goes in the water. Shark’s in the water, shark gets in the cage, shark gets Hooper.
