What the @#$%^& is a “One Month Anniversary” ??

I was just writing a monthly contract for a client and wanted to describe the date each month that the bill would be due.  I was about to write “monthly anniversary,” when I realized that makes absolutely no sense!

Well, That’s Weird… Flurry of Prepaid Legal Activity

Why Boys Need Parents…

This was forwarded to me as an email today and I really feel the need to post it for all to see.  I have to say, reluctantly, that I participated in at least 2 of these scenarios as a child.  (I won't tell you which ones!)
