i discovered the best thing to say in place of "popeycock!" when someone says something that you think is quite ridiculous, just say "pure corn oil!" in a crotchety "old man voice" .. maybe even with a slight britishness to it. my stomach hurts a lot. does anyone know of long term term effects to the stomach from drinking too many carbonated beverages? sometimes, after drinking a coke or mt. dew, it feels as though my stomach is deing disolved.. i guess that this usually happens on a n empty stomach.. so maybe that's it.. ive decided that i like the norman public library.. it's a swell place.
