Like my mother says (a long-retired but still assertive teacher), "He's just
a flea. Be careful you don't scratch the itch with a pitch fork."
I have to remember that one, Mark. It sounds like something that was said
here in the South. (I live in Orlando, FL.) Just in time for me too. I came home
yesterday, shot down because my last class of the day was giving me some
exasperating "heat" because I made a point counting and collecting all my xacto
knives at the end of class. My husband said the same thing in different words.
