[Editorial note: I was too compulsive to leave the original post with its typo. Sorry. JA)

I don't think we're exactly supposed to judge each other's answers to MeMe's....But I can't help myself. I'm laughing too hard. Maybe these are more in the line of "observations."

Are you channeling Erma Bombeck tonight???

#21 What's wrong with THAT answer?

#26 I love you too. But

#25 You probably wouldn't love me as much if you saw my butt.

#32 I agree. Haven't had it since Lee Ann lived in Atlanta, but as Rachel Ray (gag) says, "Yum-OH!"

#38 You seem to have mastered the parents' guide to middle school sex. Why not give the kids their own guide? (Just KIDDING.)

#6 I will continue to be your friend anyway.

;-) Jane Ann

A. how funny - I'm not "friendly" either... (& I know it, but can't quite fix it.)

Classic coke - the version that is out now, or the version made with sugar? (I like the sugar variety & stock up during Passover - the only time it is available.)

I'm not doing the whole thing...

At the Middle School Sex Ed talk, I felt like everyone was staring at me. Not only am I expecting, but I am about 10 years younger than the average middle schooler's parent. I almost stood up and said, "Yes, I was married when I had the first one, and I am still married when I am having this one!"

I really like the sugar Coke, but I never remember to stock up.
