new rules

The scene: my bedroom. I'm on the phone.

bb: The thing is, you know I'm not one of those people. I don't really have a food issue, I'm not eating anything crazy...you know like chocolate, or cake...

Mom: What? And you've gained ten pounds?

bb: Well, no. I mean, I don't own a scale. And my clothes fit me exactly the same.

Mom: So?

bb: So I just got out of the shower, and before I got dressed, I sat down and polished my toenails and I just looked really fat...I guess curled up like that wasn't the most flattering angle...

Mom: NAKED? You polished your toenails naked?!

bb: um, yeah.

Mom: YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING NAKED! DO YOU HEAR ME? NOTHING NAKED. UNLESS THE LIGHTS ARE OUT.

I was always under the impression that the only thing you CAN"T do naked is fry bacon.

And yes, JB has one of those charcoal starter thingeys. He's talking about getting a ceramic "egg" smoker now...

I tend to agree with Mom.

you CAN fry bacon naked but you better have a damned capacious apron.

if the lights were off, it would be very difficult to paint your toenails.
