About this Blog
Once upon a time, one of the volunteers I coordinate was doing impressions of everyone's favorite sayings. To her housemates she said, "you always say ummmmm yeah" and "you always say y'know the thing is ...." Everyone laughed, she was pretty good at the mimicry.
I asked her, "And me, what do I always say?"
She paused for a moment, looking down at the table. Then she looked up and me and said, slowly, "say more... about... that?"
And I mean, she's not wrong.
