Old Teddy is so irascible,
A demeanor deemed impassable,
From his quivering chin,
All too well soaked in gin,
Blows a stream of vile gas, et al.

My husband is a really laid back kind of guy, not one prone to be irascible - I have a feeling things are a bit different this morning. Since the school bus came hornblowing and screeching up the road abuot 3 minutes ago - I know must figure his absence is that he took Jax to school himself.

I ran short of soundalikes passable, so rather than being irascible, I decided to try the old catchbucket "et al"!

How's things?
