Shush

"You know how there are snakes that can un-hinge their jaw to swallow prey whole?" Greg said. "After reading all these political rants I sometimes think there must be people who can do the same thing with their brains."

"Finding their arguments a bit hard to swallow?" Brigid said.

"Well not just that," said Greg, "but the underlying mindset. Push the right button, and somebody who was just now a perfectly sane, rational person will turn into a ranting banshee spewing nonsensical invective."

"Hence, their brain has become unhinged," said Brigid.

"Precisely."

Brigid shrugged. "Makes as much sense as anything, I suppose. Although it gives me an uncomfortable mental image of a talking head with a dislocated brainpan."

WHEEEEEEESugarRush!

The office "winter holiday dessert party" has taught me one thing:

I must be getting older ... too much sugar gives me a headache now. 0.o And I didn't even have that much!

Still, it was a fun lil' party. :) And laurie_robey won back in the charity raffle almost as much as we spent on tickets, so that's cool. It's going right back out to my niece and her lil' bundle of joy for Christmas. :)
