Pamela created action S/Giggles
(Pamela giggles) Pamela: heck of a way to spend your birthday, at a church meeting Dr.D.: Maybe it tasted bad. Pamela: not that bad I hope Rich Dr.D.: I can never eat those crab legs, I need proper dissecting tools, and those nutcracker things are never good enough Pamela: never feed a former med student seafood Dr.D.: Nope, gimme stout scissors and a scalpel, I'll lay those legs right open and get every bit of meat out. Dr.D.: You'll think I'm sick, but I'll get all the good eating. Dr.D.: I don't care how it looks :-) Pamela: brings back visions of science class, Rich Dr.D.: Hey, know where your food comes from :-) Pamela: that doesn't mean I wanted to eat the frog I dissected Dr.D.: Of course not, formaldehyde is a poor marinade. Pamela: ewww rich-c: those who like laws or sausages whould never see them made Pamela: laws? Dr.D.: It's a Ben Franklin-style quote. Pamela: ok rich-c: Americans appreciate that comment more than Canadians rich-c: we've lost james and Judy - did they get bounced? Pamela: my cold is now full blown and surprisingly, I feel better Pamela: James got really quiet and then just disappeared. I suspect he had to go back to work rich-c: that was a quick transition, Pam - now will it respond to an anti-histamine? Dr.D.: "Hooray, I'm sick"? Pamela: actually, it's been coming on for 24 hours. You know that feeling at the back of your throat? Daniel B+/-: the passion of the chirst... I saw this film today. Pamela: well, that's gone now Dr.D.: I know it, Pam. rich-c: yse, know what you mean, though it's been a while since I've had a cold Pamela: so, I feel better - it's all about the nose now Pamela: the nose I can deal with rich-c: in English, Daniel, or did they have it dubbed in French? Dr.D.: At least typing doesn't stress your throat. Daniel B+/-: even in english, there are subtitles Pamela: surprisingly, my throat is not usually involved
