Today is Born to be a Smartass Day

The following smartasses were born on this day:
Jonathan Swift (1667) - remember "A Modest Proposal"? You know, when he suggested eating children to end famine?
Mark Twain (1835) - the original smartass of American Literature
Sir Winston Churchill (1874) - a terribly drunk smartass

So if you aim to have smartass children, November 30th would be a good day to induce labor.

Shucks, missed it by a couple of months.

Say, you OK. Sounds like you had a terrible accident -- or near miss.

mad: i think that there may be other smartass days. you were probably born on one of them.

mad & only grrrl: I'm fine. It was a near miss. An idiot in a suburban pulled out in front of me on the hwy and couldn't decide which lane they wanted to be in, so they drove in the middle of both. I drove defensively and screamed offensively.

Sorry, didn't mean to set off any alarm. It's just that you had me worried.
