Let somebody else into your pc and you end up with an av like mine, and have to wear it for a few days.

Never bet me on something.


I'll lose.

I was gonna say, Larry, you've aged a bit since I last saw you and it hasn't been that long! OhMy ROTFL

Don't let a cat in the same room as a baby or it will suck it's breath out. (My husband's grandmother believed this.)

There, is that better? I broke the bet because of the nature of this site.


But you gotta admit, it was kinda funny......

Now, shoot, I was trying to figure out what was so bad about the avatar when I realized that you changed it! ROTFL

When I was little I used to have a cat and it liked sleeping at the foot of my bed... but my mom always had it taken out of the room because she said that he would suck my breath out. lol

There is a movie called "Cat's Eye" where a scene like this actually appears... a cat is standing on top of this little girl played by Drew Barrymore, and the cat begins to suck her breath out Huh? lol

Yucky movie, Carol!

I think the tale originated with a cat licking milk off a baby but... oh yuk! What images!

Don't put an umbrella up indoors!

Don't know why but it's another one of my mother-in-law's gems!
