It seems like as soon as I post my list each Tuesday, I immediately think of something that should have been on the list. It never fails. Yesterday was no different. I was getting ready for bed and a light went off in my brain. How could I have forgotten such an important M? No self-respecting M list would leave off this one! What have I done????
Therefore, I submit one final M that most definitely should have been included. Actually, it should have been #2, directly following my son.
Instead of naming it directly, I'm going to quote it. If you figure out what I'm talking about, you will immediately understand the severity of my blunder. Please forgive me.
"It was the least I could do. I always do the least I can do."
"We've got files on people who haven't even been born."
"That's not my department, sir - intelligence is something I try to avoid."
"Due To circumstances beyond our control, lunch will be served today."
"No wonder they execute people at dawn. Who wants to live at six A.M.?"
"I'm not so think as you drunk I am."
"My kidneys were expecting orange juice. Silly kidneys."
"I wanna tell you something, anybody says anything about Iowa better be prepared to back it up, pal. I'll give you a fist-full of Iowa naiveté right in the puss! How about that? You know I don't need you to tell me what's what. I know what's what just as well as you do. So why don't you just crawl back in your bottle of booze and pickle yourself? Ha!"
And finally, if you know the scene, it's brilliant...
"Please, gentlemen... Mozart."
