Here's a funny little story I've been meaning to write:

My cell phone rings and this woman from Qu*st Diagnostics is on the other end of the line. Here's the conversation:

Me: Hello?
QD: Yes, Ms. W?
Me: Yes
QD: You wrote on your paperwork that your daughter was born on November 3, 2006. (VERY sarcastically)
Me: (thinking, is that right? oh yes, it is and uh oh, what did I do now?) Yes, that's correct.
QD: So she's a hundred and two?
Me: Ummm, no, she's two.
QD: Well that's not what it's caculating out to be!
Me: Well, it's now 2008 (at the time) and she was born in 2006, so yes, she's two years old. (Just think, I figured that out without using a calculator!!)
QD: Hmm, I wonder what's wrong with the caculator. I'm sorry!! hahaha, I don't know what's wrong with this thing! It's telling me she a hundred and two! ahahahaha...

Honest to God, this was an actual conversation.
Isn't it S. C. A. R. Y.?

She looks really good for 102! Her skin still looks so soft and no wrinkles. Must be the lotion.
Too funny,
