  1. Thanks for the chuckle.

  2. LOL! True that! What I wanna know is … WHO spilled the goopies?

  3. Brian — ou iz welcomed.

    Melli — of course OC spilled the goopies. The fact that they are on my side of the table is purely circumstantial and does not prove anything.

  4. lol! you guys rock!

  5. Polona — that’s a good thing, right?

  6. WAIT!!! Goopy isn’t a word?

  7. Blueseaglass — it must be, the kids in my classroom use it all the time (usually to describe the stuff running out of their noses ….).
