Quote of the Day

Those damn womenfolk.

From a book on religion and society in Latin America:

"In 1733, for example, the friar Diego Núñez accused his mulata slave of bewitching him, causing him to expel from his body human and animal hair, stones, wool, and a paintbrush."

I'm sure ER doctors hear this one all the time.

Damn. If only I could figure out how to get my husband to expel Louboutins.

Knowing your tastes, Moi, I just hope they wouldn't come out sideways.
