    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Tom R is right. She might also have been Polly's older brother who was THE Dairy Queen. She does keep on changing.

    Outline

    Insert usual "_____-open" statement.
    Propose outline that "maps" all threads, showing continuity linkage.
    Determine that this thread is "father" of the DULL thread.
    Give usual roll of eyes when searching for thread originator's moniker.

    Is that what you call cross-threading?

    [needlessly bump thread after several years of inactivity] [insert inane but semi-topical comment concerning some pop cultural phenomenon that's beginning to show signs of declining public interest]
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
