365-36 E is for Explanation. While having lunch with Dad today he asked me to go into his kitchen to get the salt and pepper. I returned with a large silver set of obvious salt and pepper shakers. He frowned at me and said "Not these, the smaller ones-" so I got up and returned the large set in exchange for the small set.
I handed them to him and asked "Oh, were the others empty?"
"No-" he smiled "-I like the small ones because they are cuter-"
I cracked up. I then congratulated him on helping me find my picture of the day.
This is my newly remarried, Vietnam Veteran, lawyer, and now retired Dad explaining that "cuter" although not a word was most apropos in this circumstance....
