Me: What supplements do you take?
Middle-aged woman: yeah that other C one.
Me: Do you mean vitamin C?
MAW: (laughing) Yes, that's it!
Me: The gingko's not working.

Hare to hair!

I was shuffling down a leaf-covered sidewalk, enjoying the late afternoon sunshine. The lady of the house was out front raking, her mid-sized mutt clamoring at her heels for a game of fetch. Spying me, he grabbed his small toy, a saliva-soaked bunny, and dropped it at my feet. He was used to the well-aimed flick of an expert wrist, so he raced down the block anticipating the toss. I, in turn, heaved the soggy animal and hit his mistress upside her head.
