My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Farrago--the distance from here to there, as in "Do you know how farrago to get to the county line?"

Mam said...

Deductive reasoning would say that, since a cannonade is an assault with cannon, a "fanfaronade" would be an assault with trumpets.

Farrago is a movie by the Coen Brothers. "Ya think?"

Yayyy. My brain woke up!

"Farrago". The abreviated word used by rednecks to immitate the opening sequence to Star Wars. "In a galaxy a long long farrago...."

"Fanfaronade". That lemonade that you spill on yurself when you are clapping during the fanfare for an Obama rally...
