As Alice and I were walking down from the viewing bridge at Multnomah Falls yesterday, she told me a spooooky tale.
Alice: #eldritch voice# According to legend... Now Mom, this might not make you happy, but every 2 years...
Me: What happened every two years, Alice?
Alice: #eldritch voice again# well, every 2 or 3 years...
Me: What happened every 2 or 3 years, Alice?
Alice: I need a few minutes to think about it.
Then later when we were in the bathroom together:
Me: whew! My bladder has been telling me for a while that I needed to pee.
Alice: mine, too!
Me: do you think they speak the same language, our 2 bladders?
Alice: well they ARE both american.
