Because My Dad Doesn't Have A Blog

An email I got from my dad this morning:

So yesterday morning I started to juice some oranges fresh off our tree when our awesome, had it forever, juicer began to growl and slow down. What to do?? To fix most anything around the house the usual two choices are duct tape or WD 40. I opted for WD 40 because I don't know how to tape an orange and spraying is more of a guy thing anyway. I tried to be judicious in my application but, alas, WD40 becomes ubiquitous when sprayed and mom's OJ immediately picked up the subtle aroma and tang of this amazing lubricant. She immediately poured her juice into mine. I drank both hers and mine and I no longer squeek. Mom is squeeking and taping her joints. Did I make the right choice?

Dad: Fifty extra points for using the word "ubiquitous". You're awesome.

Clearly, this is where you get it from.

100 points for noting who does and does not squeek.

Thanks for stopping by today. I recognize a few in the comment house. Just Randi and Comcewens and the Redhoodoos. You might have some new friends. Bye the way, I love WD-40. It holds magical secrets yet to be told.
