Those ARE special

With apologies to my cousin, who will still be receiving this card in about 2 days, I’m embarrassed to be sending her…


Since I looked at this card 700 times before noticing, I hope she won’t either. Ever. Amen.

(Made in China. Purchased in America. At a discount. Good thing.)

Always live up to your standards —
by lowering them, if necessary.

    Today I was behind a car with a license plate holder/frame that read “Lisa Your Amazing.”

    Not that same thing, I realize, but it once again proves why spell (and grammar) check is not all that and a bag of chips.

    Most of us could use some wisdom anyway!

    mea culpa…based on having to buy 8 cards in October and running out of steam and choices (I know what’s inside most cards on the shelf just by looking at the front). But really, how embarrassing. And me a proofreader!

    I wonder if the store stocked the shelf, wishing the wise would not notice? That is wiseful thinking………you are probably the first!
