The Quotable Departed

This week, my mother was reminiscing about her late second husband, my stepfather, who had a unique way of expressing himself. For example, she understandably remembers this exchange:

SHE: How do you feel?

HE: Like I was eaten by a wolf and s*** off a cliff.

I think this quote works on many levels. OK, it makes me laugh. This is more than I can say for Mom's favorite example of the words I put to my feelings when I was very little:

SHE: How do you feel?

ME: Like gray eggs.
