I know you have access to a dictionary, you have quoted from it many times.

Although, there is nothing wrong with a blue collar job.  Doesn't your husband have one? Sometimes, anyway?

I don't need to look it up. I KNOW what it means. What did YOU mean by your statement above?

Well Bord, it seems that you have tapped into a delicate area of conversation for Molly. May I suggest stretching it out for days? Let's see if we can get her to ask the same question seventeen times this time.

Thanks, sometimes all the double standads of Molls and Jams are hard to keep up with...

  I didn't mean anything other than what the words together mean.   Again, I am not sure why you are confused.

You do realize that the only one sounding bitter here is well, you.

   Are you counting for me?  I have to go in to work for a little while this afternoon, so unfortunately, no drinking games.  Only in my case it's more likely to me "eat a homemade chocolate chip cookie with pecans" game.

<<Where in heaven's name do you come up with this stuff? 

A little birdy told me ;)>>

So now in additon to stalking kids that you don't know, you are discusing them with others.  Another proud molly moment!

Delicate? lol. No. Just would love to know what she means sometimes. Sounds like she is trying to insinuate that my dh works "sometimes" which is a lie. My dh has ALWAYS had at least one job.
