In one of Dave Barry
s he declares that the only appropriate response to:
Does this dress make me look fat?
is for the questionee to stick a fork
into one or both eyes
. Much less painful
I have taken this to heart, and whenever my wife lets slip an unanswerable question I holler:
Where's my fork?!
She cracks up, I dodge a bullet
, and innocent bystander
s are spared potential unpleasantness.
Kudos to Dave.
