So, it has come to my attention that I owe a few people a heartfelt and hearty "I AM SORRY"...so, in no particular order, here are my apologies:
1. Claire's mom...I am sorry that I did not mention that YOU made the wonderful egg and sausage dish last week. Your cooking inspires much of how Claire and I eat and it was poor form for me to suggest that anyone other than you made that egg dish. I look forward to eating it again at the wedding!
2. Claire...I am sorry that I did not mention in this post that you actually made the Chicken Pot Pie and that it was wonderful. I should also mention that it fed both of us lunch AND dinner the next day. Your cooking is heaven sent and I always love the home style that you bring to your lovingly prepared meals.
3. French People...I am sorry that I have made fun of you all my life. I was taught that you were nothing but "cheese eating surrender monkey's", but as I learn more about how you helped us become a nation and the gift of General Lafayette, I realize that you taught us about good timing and how to win a war. If it were not for your sacrifice and dedication to helping the Americans become, well, Americans, I would probably have really bad teeth, drink tea, eat spotted dick and talk with a cockney accent.
4. My friend and commenter Nashville?!?...I am sorry that I am going to spank you with your own ping-pong paddle during the wedding celebrations. I know it will be hard for you to go home to your wife after I leave STIGA emblazoned on your posterior, but you will just have to suck it up because you can't stay in VA after the beating I will lay on you.
Any apologies you need to drop?
