    I don't call flavored carbonated water "pop", and
    You must have gotten different questions than I did - that one never came up! And none of these quizzes take into account our genetic tendency to match those speaking around us! I'll never forget my friend Ieda dias da Silva scolding me as she thought I was teasing her by "speaking Portuguese" with a Brazilian accent - I tried to explain I was just saying it the way she taught me to say the phrase, having never spoken Portuguese before!

    "You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio. 90% Midland.

    That probably comes from the fact that I'm born and raised in Tennessee by parents that were from Massachusetts.

    Time helps the sadness subside, but the memories remain forever.

    Putting a pallet of 2 1/2 pound bags of Cadbury mini-eggs as an end cap is WRONG!!!

    Sometimes I think I'm an idiot!

    Correction - sometimes I KNOW I'm an idiot.

    I have to be, to eat a meatball sub stacked with sweet peppers, green peppers, and onions, when I've been battling an IBS flareup for the past couple of weeks. I'm going to regret it - big time! But it tasted so darn good - and I only ate half of a footlong............

    Oh, isn't that interesting! (Chicago bridge lifting.) I'd never heard about that before.

    What a delightful sign of spring for Chicagoans!

    Can someone please point me to the "Klam Joose" thread? I am having a not-good day and I need to smile. I know that thread will be just what I need, but I can't find it.

    THank you,
