apartment seeker: This is really great, but I'd like a larger apartment. Can you recommend anything nearby?

Me: I'd drive around downtown paying particular attention to older buildings which have been converted. There's one I've particularly heard has excellent prices on lofts with private rooftop decks. It's on Houston Street across from the School Book Supposito-"

egad.

Yeah. In jest I have said "School Book Suppository" so many times that I can't say "School Book Depository" when I want to. Is this a form of Tourette's?

Well, I can recall a number of school books that gave me a distinct pain in the a**, so I suppose it's not a bad name for the place!

If you can say it while bicycling, it is called Tourette's Velodrome.

(Groan!)

Odd, we were just kidding about that very word substitution Friday night. (Don't ask how the topic came up - I don't know.)

You're not alone in calling it that.

Hey, when do you want to go 'planting' the annual brass harvest we talked about the other day?

Regards,
Rabbit.

If it's any consolation, DH has been having a similar issue lately. Him and a friend started a new reenacting group representing the 1st Special Forces Group. Problem is, we have a ton of friends doing WWII 1st Special Service Force...
