Will You Cut It Off!?!

Again, there's been a bit of a lag between posts. Sorry. There's just not that much excitement in my life. I am not complaining, mind you. I have quite a nice life. I just can't bring myself to bore you with the everyday tedium.

I did, along with Dear Hubby, enjoy a lovely dinner last night with Shannon (oldest daughter), her boyfriend, Daniel, and Daniel's Mom, Cindy. We went to a charming little place in Baltimore called Arcos Mexican Restaurant & Bar. The atmosphere at the place is great; request a seat in the outdoor courtyard if possible. The food was okay, but the good company and great location made for a very pleasant evening. It was well overdue, but that's a long story!

For those of you wondering about the title I chose for today's post... I lifted it from a story my youngest daughter conveyed about her 7-year-old daughter, Brianna, my oldest grandkid. Brianna and her brother, Gaige (age 4), like most kids, bicker a lot. Usually about stupid stuff. Gaige tries his hardest to get under his sister's skin, whether his arguments are logical or not. Sometimes, his efforts pay off.

On one recent occasion, when Brianna had had enough, she said to Gaige, "Will you cut it off!" Apparently, that is her hybrid combination of "cut it out" and "knock it off." Amy said, when she was finished laughing, she had to explain to Brianna how the sayings are different and can't really be combined effectively (if B. wants to be taken seriously, that is).

My next post should be more interesting. I'll be away for a couple of days, but should have some photos and commentary to share upon my return.


  1. You know the sad thing - I read the title and I guess after hearing it so much - it just made sense to me!! I didn't even think it was an odd title.

  2. What do you mean it's a long story?! It's only, what, 10, 12 years in the making? :-)


Please say something...
