1. What does it mean when the dentist is talking to me and the assistant is making eye contact with me behind his back and the assistant is shaking her head "no"?
2. Look what happens when it's Winter Break week and the mother declares a moratorium on video games, television, and the Internet: a puzzle!
3. Dream interpreters, please help me: I dreamed that my child's teacher kidnapped me. We both thought it was a boring kidnapping and I walked home.
4. Please pray for one of my students who lost a parent last week and then tried to end his own life in response.
5. My version of Apple Cake (See, Mom? I do use your flower cake pan!)
1 1/4 white sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
5 1/2 cups chopped apples (I went over by a cup - don't repeat my mistake)
45 minutes in a 325 degree oven (325 doesn't seem right to me; maybe it was 350?)
6. Why do we ALWAYS need the receipt AFTER I've thrown it away?
