A friend* was kind enough to send me this piece. He read it on the Internet, so you darn well know it’s true. Besides it sounds like Nancy Pelosi.
A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE KIND OF REPRESENTATION WE HAVE IN CONGRESS:
A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) happened to appear.
Ms Pelosi took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.
“Would you mind telling me, Doctor,” she asked, “how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?”
“Nothing is easier,” he replied. “You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track.”
“What sort of question?” asked Pelosi.
Well, you might ask ‘Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?'”
Pelosi thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, “You wouldn’t happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don’t know much about history.”
She who would be queen.
* Tip of the old hat to Donald J for the idea.

It has been a week since I lost my best friend. A week has passed and I’m still confused. How could something like this have happened to such a special person in my life?
I still get up and look for her in all of her favorite place. The guest bathroom, AKA, The Office. My people’s offices. The bedroom, the living room. But she is not there. It feels like she should be here. After dinner, I still wait and look for her to go outside with.
When I’m outside running, I wait for her to come out of some “ambush” spot to try and knock me off my stride. But I run with no interruption and it is just not as much fun without Ms Ruby.
My people are going to get me a copy of Dragon Speak because they understand I’m not the worlds greatest typist.
I just had to write some additional words about my beautiful Ms Ruby. I miss you and will always hold you in my heart. I found this poem that I hope Ms Ruby would enjoy.
