2. Steve says he has my birthday present, but all I see is a box that says, "Beef Brisket". I look at Tess and she shrugs her shoulders. We both laugh at the inference to Howard Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory whose mother is always cooking brisket. I hope I'm not cooking beef brisket for my birthday.
2a. I try to stump Steve with a difficult question: "How old am I going to be?" Without looking at me, he smiles and answers, "Double nickels".
3. I tell the chiropractor, in a friendly way, that it's nothing personal but I really don't like coming to him. He smiles. I'm glad we have this understanding.
