An excercise in probability...

Let me ask you all a question...

What are the odds of you thinking that it's a "funny idea" to throw a snowball across a 50 yard parking lot at your wife? Now, imagine that you act on that idea, and instead of pelting your wife, you hit the advent calendar in the hands of your 4 year old son.

OK, now let's assume that the previously mentioned scenario has occurred; now what are the odds that various chocolates in said advent calendar will pop out all over the place? Now, factor in the decreased probability of this happening in the presence of a complete stranger who also witnesses the scathing remarks of your wife? Pretty slim odds, but it gets better...

What if - hypothetically speaking of course - instead of humbly and sincerely issuing an apology, all you can manage is a dumb cheese eating grin?

Georganne, this story's for you!

What would the world do without you?

I don't see this ever occurring... especially with you Stewart. You never cause trouble!

Is that the reason Becca kicked you off her blog?
