The lunacy has ended, the pies are baked, the peanut butter balls are dipped & in the freezer. Hooray for summer, wet swimsuits & cool houses (except for the kitchen.)
I once had this boss that spent several months trying to convince everyone that the punctuation in the above sentence's parenthesis was the correct way to do it. We kept telling her it was wrong, but she swore up and down that the period goes inside the parenthesis. We finally convinced her, but it took a lot of documentation because she considered herself an "expert" at grammar and always did the final edits on our newsletter because she was so "good" at it. ha! Funny the memories a little punctuation can bring back.
Actually I was just remembering how dang hot that office used to get with no air conditioning and how happy I am to not be commuting in a bus or non-airconditioned car. Sorry NEDA ladies, I miss you, but not the oven we used to work in, you must be miserable right now.
