    Well, that depends (and before you ask, I'm referring to the possibility of that other other thing happening first).
    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

    If the other thing happens first though, it really means you should just start over.

    Won't it be all over if the other other thing happens or am I thinking of the other other thing?

    Based on past experience in discussing these sorts of things with you, I'm reasonably sure you are referring to the other other other thing. I will tell you right now we aren't going to open that can of worms.

    Why would anyone want a can of worms anyway? A can of worms would be all dead and of no use for fishing. I know it isn't vague. It is actually specific. But I have just always wondered.

    Anybody else really wonder about that ?
    Oddball
    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?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    You know, sometimes. But not often. Not really seldom, exactly, but definitely not often.

    Why do I wonder who, who, who wrote the book of love?

    I believe it was the Indians (from the subcontinent, not the casinos), and was translated by Sir Richard Burton (not the actor, but the explorer who got the spear through his face.) Once again I am not being vague.

    I find your specificity vaguely disconcerting. Does that count?

    Is that what it's all about? Not the hokey pokey? Or is it all about, you know?

    Some people are offended when you call them "those people".

    But the other people are similar.

    Only those people think those people are different. Those people that those people are refering to think they are similar to those people, but those people know that's not true. Those people will only be happy once those people are not around that place anymore.
