I took a background check and a drug test for a temp job next week... :oops:

(I wonder if the background check will recover the German blockade runners on my Mom's side?)

Oh well, maybe I'll do something for Talk Like A Cow Day... :roll:

It is. Created a hunchback and got one of my ancestors struck by lighting on that side of the family tree. You'd think, a couple hundred or so years later, we'd have learned better.
