Paula and I were at the mall the other day and as we were walking out another couple was coming towards us, into the mall. Just inside the door the man stopped short and turned to the woman with a look like she’d just kicked his dog… twice… with big, heavy boots:
“Three hours?!? In here? What do you need that for?”
She ignored him and just kept walking as he wilted and sulked after her into the mall.

I flew back from Redmond tonight on Alaska Air flight 594 and you’ll never believe who was at the controls… Captain Kirk! He appears to have replaced his navigator, however… Chekhov was nowhere to be found.
