Great Moments In Chat

At my age you trickle the tap less 
to keep down the cost.  You do things 
like that, and you 

quote, work for a living, end quote.

I know things.  I know the price of running the 
thermostat at sixty-eight degrees for a typical
day in December

            in the mountains
                              
                              in Appalachia.

I can tickle tell you 

an eighteen pound turkey bird 
takes five freaking days to thaw 
out in the fridge.  You see?

I quote, know things, end quote.

People like me give the best advice, too.  We are,
to steal a line from Georges Handel and the Bible,
wonderful counselors, although I do not claim
to be the Almighty, 

                  nor the Prince of Peace,

                                 nor does the government rest upon my shoulders.

I would like to think so of myself, though.  How I enjoy the thought of it!
