I've been twenty-two years [+3] with my best friend and wife.

I can also wiggle my ears.

The child of Evo is one of those people that can make multiple folds in their tongues, it's weird. She can just fold it up like a fan. The folds go from left to right, not back to front. I first found out when I was watching either Ripley's Believe It or Not, or the Guiness book of World Records and she says "I can do that". :bugeye:

I believe there is a gene for this. Are you sure that you're the mother?

You must really like your best friend to keep him around the house with your wife.

If it weren't for the delivery room pictures of a baby with long dark hair that matched the only baby in the nursery, I wouldn't be sure. She looks nothing like me. My in-laws were saying "well, she's got a lot of hair". When she got older and so pretty, they claimed that she definitely took after their side of the family. :rolleyes:

All the babies at the hospital looked like the Gerber baby, but she had long, dark hair, which fell out a few months later and was replaced by curly blondish hair. Now it's dark again. But she still has huge piercing blue, almond shaped eyes. If you look at my profile, that picture is of her.

With those eyes, all she has to do is blink at someone and they are hers.

Oh, and she's 20, single, and pre-med. <cough> Just in case anyone is interested. :biggrin:

I call her "Big Red".

Ok. I deleted the picture of me on this thread.
Survival to old age is not something to be proud of.
People do it all the time.

My greatest accomplishment was restoring my boat that was built way back in 1945.
Purchased in ~1990.
In the water within 30 days.
Ruined within 5 years.

took me 3 years to fix. Looked like a bass violin and had a beautiful sound when thumped on the belly.

Ran around for a few years and got totally trashed by a wave.

She should be back together in another 3 years.

Ok. Maybe it was an accomplishment surviving that wave without ending up like my boat.

And thank god none of my 4 friends died that day.

:rofl: No, just a couple years ago, we got that "who's online" feature and suddenly we could see how many spiders were crawling around here. It may be socially acceptable in Japan, but slurping when eating is considered rude here.

I suppose. If you read the threads in my links, you'll see that it was more the image of giant fuzzy spiders descending upon the forum and slurping out our brains that was most disturbing. Bad choice of name!

This reminds me of the joke: "Help! Help! My daughter (the doctor) is drowning!"
