‘What’s the salt on that caramel?’ and other useful phrases

There are some who think I have my own language.  This is probably because I make up words to suit my needs.  For example, the term ‘stuade,’ pronounced stwaid.  It’s kind of fun to see in print, isn’t it?  Stuade is actually a word one of my college friends made up and I use it [...]

We don’t just sound the alarm

I just saw a very funny commercial.  Almost as funny as the one from Geico with the mom calling the James Bond-like son during a high pressure situation and wanting to talk to him about the squirrel infestation at the parental home.  I want to say right up front that I would never do something [...]
