I’m not what you would call graceful.

My history includes many episodes that range from awkward to downright clumsy. A classmate once described me as being "as coordinated as a cow on stilts."

"Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from the grocery store with the most amazing haul -- chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we’re the greatest hunters in the world."

-- Anne Tyler

"Honey! Can ya please bring me the shrimp sauce outta the ’fridge? My feet are up."

"Are you for real?"

"C’mon! The game is on, and I’m really comfy."

"You’re unbelievable … OK, where is it? Last Sunday we were out."

"It’s in the ’fridge door next to the mustard. I went to Frank’s this morning. I got a lot of good stuff. Now please hurry up; the Pack is about to score, and I gotta eat something.’"
