|"Big Island - Upper Island Cove" Oil on Canvas by Cara|
ME: Did you see the weather? HUGE waves expected this afternoon....HUGE! Why do we live 3 feet from the edge of the ocean......it would be safer in Antartica.
HER: For the 7 millionth time, it's ANTARCTICA. Remember, last week you did the story about the giant Arctic snowcat...we had this conversation.
ME: That was an Artic...... this is ANTartica.
HER: Who is Aunt Artica...your long lost, chilly relative? LOOK IT UP!
ME: On the Google?
ME: I still say the "C" is silent. BUT IT WON'T BE THIS AFTERNOON, will it?
ME: DID YOU GET MY JOKE?
A very chilly reaction to my very funny joke. SHE really IS just like Aunt Artica.
