Lexicon Laughs

My favorite new term: "recreational genomics". Apparently, new science companies have emerged—like DNAPrint—which will sequence your DNA to determine your ethnic ancestry for a "small" fee.

Prodding me to reply: “Do ya wanna keep it?” (facetiously of course).

Disappointingly, she said, ‘Yes.”

I had to dig myself out of that hole quickly and thus replied, “Well poops are yucky and squishy.”
She countered with, “Silly putty is squishy.”

I closed my argument with, “Yes, but silly putty isn’t stinky.”

See what I get myself into?
