1.  What was the last thing you did for your kid?

2.  What things do you like doing with your kids? 

3.  What memories stand out about your own mom...  Good or bad?

4.  How many kids do you have?  Is it a # you planned for/wanted? 

5.  Do you have a pet(s)?

I think she was looking for a response like--yes I was wrong, I should have named my cat Mac.

Maybe you should go back and read your posts, saying that everyone shortens things over and over and talking about how there is not a Macintosh but only an imac or mac is not saying Gee, i'd have just named that dang cat "Mac".  Joking...no. 

My 13 yo tries to say she is joking, after she says sarcastic things--yeah well, she doesn't do it well.  And above on my whole rant about this post, my 13 yo also is unhappy when I (very quickly lately) have had ENOUGH of the ridiculous degenerating arugment and leave the room.  She's always unhappy about that...she says "but you never want to discuss anything!"  Well duh, who would?

Dang, can't you guys do better than this? This isn't a very good episode. I might have to switch channels or something.

Have I and many others not acknowledged that?  iMac, however, is the legal copyrighted name of that particular product. 

Sometimes I can't tell if you're deliberately trying to be obtuse or if it's just a natural talent.

Ummm, I bet we have one of those (although a later model) in our storage unit.  Sigh.
