    Default Snappy comebacks--might be amusing

    Sometimes we don't know what to say in reply to someone. This little "article" that is more of a cartoon might provide some suggestions for comebacks:

    I like the New Yorker and snappy comebacks often escape me at the moment I need them. When someone comes and tells me the magical healing powers of shiitake mushrooms I respond by saying...”really!? I did not know that and will be sure to mention it at my next visit with my neurologist. I can get snarky by asking for an article or book referencing how this or that cures MS.

    Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says:"Oh Crap, She's up!"

    Asking for a book on an MS cure is a good one Linda.

    Laz, I'm even worse, I ask for a copy of the double blinded study they are relying on.

    I am so grateful for your care and concern. It warms my heart that you think about how to help me. The main help I need now is rides, occasional help cooking, and your ever present kindness.
