9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney for January 10, 2006
"I've come to a milestone in my life, and you're just being difficult, as is your wont." "It's, 'As is your want.'" "No...Your want is your need, where you're found lacking...Your wont is your predisposition. What you want is any sympathy for my feelings...as always." "In other words...my want is my wont, and my wont is my want." "Stop clenching your buttocks, dear. It's unladylike, and you're making the upholstery bounce."
