These are wonderful. I will have to remember to share them with OC when he gets home. Shortly after we moved here, neither of us used to the intense heat or working/playing in it all day, OC and I got home from a wonderful beach outing and both realized as the car came to a stop, that we now had to climb to the third floor. We groaned in unison.

I said, "I'm too tired!" OC promptly responded, "Bicycle or motorcycle?" It took me a moment to comprehend the question, then I replied, "Doesn't matter. The tires are flat anyway."

That was fun, Mary. You had me chuckling. :)

Have you ever heard of Spoonerisms? I believe Spooner was a college professor known for switching phrases and syllables, such as, "It is kisstomery to cuss the bride."

I enjoy that kind of word play.
