No delicious little shiver here, just best wishes for a good recovery (and new boobs just as perky as the last).

There's nothing sweeter than a sick day that isn't fully merited. That smile says it all.

No advice on the throwing child but just wanted to say that it's almost impossible to believe that such a little cherub could be so naughty!

Part of the problem of responding to a question like “Are you not putting onions in that”? or “Have you not seen this movie before?” is the imprecision of the English language. A simple yes or no do not suffice in that situation. In French, for example, one can use "si" to respond affirmatively to a negative question - for example, "Si, I'm putting onions in that," or "Si, I've seen this movie." Much more useful! On the other hand, I do have a problem responding to French speakers when they say "pas mal" (in English, "not bad"). In English, we usually say "no" when agreeing with somebody who suggests that something is not bad - as in "no, that's not bad." In French, the same sentiment would be reflected in an affirmative response. Funny! is now following The Typepad Team
