mharbourgirl that is AWESOME!
I will be sure to tell me Bro about it - though I don't think he would say that to Clueless.
BarensMom, my Bro is the King of the Nonplussed. He does not take one iota of a P/A hint like Clueless gave him. So the convo (as he related it to me) went something like this:
Clueless: Well...it's too bad you can't make it to my golf party.
Bro: *totally neutral/deadpan* Yup, sure is.
Clueless: I guess now I'll have to hire
someone to cook the food.
Bro: Yup, guess so.
Clueless: *gripe moan etc. etc.* I'll have to pay my kids to do it for me!
Bro: *silently tuning up the world's tiniest violin* Sounds like a plan. And the saga continues
: Bro has informed me that Clueless informed him that "it's okay you're missing the golf party - you'll just have to come around and help me set up my new entertainment system when it gets delivered." Bro can't wait...
