Frequently Asked Questions


Why is the check engine light always on in your station wagon?
I am an adrenaline junkie who lives on the edge. Also I'm cheap and I don't want to know.

How do you remember all of those things that Bob says?

I only have to remember what he says long enough to write it down. After that, it’s gone from my small brain. I must leave room for Jeff’s cell number and inexplicably, the lyrics to Going Up the Country by Canned Heat.

What does “Smacksy” mean?
I addressed this timeless question here.

How many girlfriends does Bob have now?
Three. And they are all beautiful little Mensa members whom I adore.

How’s Vi doing?

She’s had a couple of what the vet has referred to as “brain events” this summer. They’ve left her a little wobbly on her feet and a little tired. However, she still enjoys yelling at us and sitting on laps so every day with her is a good day.

Are you still trying to be a (fruits and vegetables only) vegan because of your cholesterol?
Sort of. I am what we are calling a “Vegan-at-Home.” We eat out once a week or so and when we do I might enjoy some bread or cheese. Or a nice piece of fish. Or a short stack.

When is Mr. Rosenberg’s new album coming out?

Sept 25 and it is divine. You can find more information and links to two pre-release songs here.

Is Bob still into Star Wars?
Yes, oh my, yes. Add to this his affection for Annoying Orange and Angry Birds and it’s like we actually live inside an iPad.

Are you really not going to train, like, at all for the Avon Walk?

After receiving some gentle prodding from my pal Cheryl and the delightful Dr. Manning, I have decided that I will buy a couple of pairs of walking shoes and break them in by walking around some. On the big weekend, I will also have cab fare and the best of intentions.

School starts next week. What will you do with those three free hours that Bob is in kindergarten every day?
You’re looking at it.

  11. I knew everything except the cab fare. Honestly thought that would be for an extra latte. There is a Starbucks on that walk, right? Oh no, now I'm scared!

    1. There BETTER be a Starbucks on that walk, Sister. The cab fare is only in the event of catastrophic injury, like if I rip my new Lulu Lemon workout gear or something.

  13. I grew up keeping kosher the way you eat vegan. Must be why I like eating out so much. Send Vi well wishes!
