Goodness, I can just hear Billy Crystal using that one.

What's the name of the book you were given?

I'll give you a dollar if you can logically work that into three conversations today.

It's actually just a photocopied pamphlet that looks like it was typed up on a typewriter in 1982. Heehee.

Brian, you owe me THREE dollars ;)

And on a day I am wearing a ponytail! The nymphet part, though...

Billy Crystal was the first thing I thought of, too.

Maiden has become nymphet? They give weird translations in your Yiddish book...

Tina Lee said...

I love it. I'm going to use it three times today.

Cakespy said...

So THAT's what they've been calling me at the deli.

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm afraid to even read that one.

A pamphlet about what? Pony-tailed nymphets spawn all kinds of adventures in this house...

Hello there. Honestly, I've never heard that one - but just wait 'til you get to the swear words and phrases for "ugly-faced village girl." Too funny!

I want transcripts of the conversations. (And preferably surveillance video of the strange stares you attracted in the process.)
