7 Quick Takes Friday - Vol. 37

We ate at a holy restaurant the other day, but it was hardly a religious experience. Actually, it was a holey restaurant. Part of the dining area was cordoned off with signs that said, "Pardon our dust while we make building repairs." The manager said a neon sign caught fire and burned a hole in the roof. My observant seven year old noticed that the hole was right above our table!

I'm on the lookout for good Rosary podcasts. I like the one I downloaded from a place called Rosary Army, but occasionally I have problems with it. The commute home from work is a great time for this important daily prayer. But I prefer to have it on a podcast since it's sometimes too hard to concentrate while driving. I was about to tell you my brilliant idea of making a steering wheel cover with Rosary beads built in. But I just did a web search and discovered that millions of people have already thought of this.

I know all parents think their baby is the cutest one in the world. But mine really is!

Are you ready for some gripping reality TV? I pressed record on my phone video cam and handed it to my 10-month-old so you can get an idea of what her life is like for a few seconds. You'll get a decent view of her feet and Michelin man legs.

There are some sentences in which it's especially bad to misplace a modifier. I heard this on the radio the other day: "The president is making the case for attacking Syria for using chemical weapons in Sweden."

I saw an advertisement for an "Extreme Flag Football" league for kids. What do you think they do to make flag football extreme? Maybe there's barbed wire on the flags.

People will try to wrap just about anything in bacon these days. I read a news story about a new bacon-wrapped car. Too bad the exhaust doesn't smell like bacon.
