Just a squash, value and living to serve

- A woman from my volunteer organization created quite a stir at the airport over the weekend. Her Thanksgiving hosts in Michigan had sent her off with an acorn squash which she packed in her carry-on bag. Since she put her cellphone charger and alarm clock on top of it, the security people had to make certain it wasn't a bomb before allowing her to board. My question, "Did they let you keep the squash?" They did.

- Discussing the value of higher education with a co-worker after overhearing him tell his daughter (reluctant to take the SAT) that she should practice saying, "Do you want fries with that?"

- Viewing my shopping cart on Amazon.com and a message says "Your cart is empty, but it lives to serve."

Never underestimate the potency of a squash bomb.

Fries with that - that's a fact Jack.

Amazon - cute!
