  2. I agree with that sentiment. At the office they once circulated an email announcing that leftover salad had been placed in the kitchen. I responded that they should take me off the leftover salad email distribution list and put me on a leftover cookies email distribution list.

    Happy holidays to you.

  3. Ok, I think I get his point, but I'm not sure... Can I at least see the tart?

  4. If I ate cookies, not only would they not make any difference re the shortness of life but they would likely make me short and fat! One question: Would that be an apple tart or a cherry tart? Oh, one other question: How did Beard know the tart was female? Oops, one more: Why would a tart wear a watch? That's just silly. :-)

  5. I don't need a sign to remind me to eat cookies. If they are there, I eat them.

  6. The Beard quote evoked an audible chuckle from me. Love Birdman's comment!
