For Steve

This came into my Blame it on Lorraine email, which I use Webgod Jeff to format. If Steve had emailed my main contact, I would have replied directly, but the BIOL email is blind. But since it's just a basic question, I'll answer it here. It's about today's column:

Dear Lorraine;

Was it misprint, or did you actually get in your car and drive one half of a kilometre (500 metres) to your friends house when their alarm went off?


It's probably a little past a kilometre now that I think about it, but with two cops waiting for me at my best friend's house trying to ascertain if there has been a break-in, and two dogs going crazy from the noise, yeah, I'd totally grab my car and drive even half a kilometre.

That column was hilarious to read. You know anytime your kids complain about you taking the piss out on them in print, show them this column. It takes a big person to do this to herself in print. That Erma Bombeck award was earned.

Not fair; this is a public forum, not a Sommerfeld clique!
