In the last 62 years since I acquired my permanent teeth, I estimate I’ve had 177 cleanings, some more vigorous than others, but don’t get me started. Cleanings now average between $75 and $200, the average being $127. I’m already ahead of the game, because Julie charges me only $125 per session. Even at that conservative figure, I’ve spent more than $22,000 on cleanings. That’s what you would expect to pay for a 1983 Lamborghini with auto-glide, to put things in perspective.
Restaurants don’t offer early bird specials here in Colorado. That’s unfortunate, because I got used to them on South Beach. And speaking of the beach, there aren’t nearly as many bikinis here. In fact, I haven’t seen one of them since August.
Now, let’s consider everyone else’s intellectual property rights. When creating your campaign content, be careful not to infringe the intellectual property rights of others.

If you intend to use a name or logo in your campaign, be sure to perform a trademark search on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website (uspto.gov).
A fellow named Jerry Hill got the ball rolling on middle names. He thought Middle Name Pride Day would be a good time for us to call each other by our middle names. The only people whose middle name I know are dead and it seems disrespectful to refer to the deceased by his or her middle name.
Do not eat the Passover Lamb raw or boiled. Barbecued is still okay, I think. And whatever you do, don’t let a hired servant eat some of the Passover Lamb. In fact, if a person has not been circumcised, he’s out of luck, too.
Some people have a better sense of time than others. And some of us have a sense of fatigue that only an afternoon nap can satisfy.
Am I Being Too Literal? he word “literal,” for me, has gone from being mildly annoying to exasperating. After you hear why, I am pretty sure it will literally rankle you, too....
I’ve been spending time in my doctor’s office lately, not because I’m sick or injured, but because I’m one of the few patients of his who’s insured. See, he’s got two kids in college and a Ferrari that is only three payments from being paid off. So he really needs me more than I need him and we both know it…
If you divide 22 by 7 you get a reasonable approximation of pi. So someone decided to name 22/7, that is, July 22nd, Pi Approximation Day. That way, obsessed math students could celebrate two days each year.
You’ve heard the expression, “starving artist.” It refers to a person who performs or paints or composes or writes poetry, mostly, and if he earns money at all, he barely pays his bills…
