It's nothing personal, you saw to that, you're just a person who does her best work on her back

I've mentioned before how answering a question with the words "Your mom" can sometimes get a person in trouble. I don't care. I still say it because it's funny. It's one of those things I'll probably be saying when I'm 80.

That said, I recently had another instance where it could've gotten me into trouble. It didn't, but it could've.

My kids' step-dad: You get all that for the low, low price of twenty-five cents.

Togers: Wait. What only costs twenty-five cents?

Me: Your mom.

I have to say that nothing beats implying that your ex-wife is a cheap whore in front of your children**, your ex-wife and her husband, and getting laughs from everybody.

*This just happens to be the song stuck in my head right now, so it's not meant to be a statement about my ex.

**Not that they'd understand the implication.

It is good that your relationship is like that.... it is good for the kids. And funny, too!!!

I think your Mom responses are still funny, but I'm not wild about those 'your mama is so . . . ' jokes as those don't do much for me.

And backtracking a bit, that Halloween/Axl Rose story was pretty damn funny.

Dude, that is awesome you are the zen master of being a divorced dad with kids. I am in awe and am trying to continue to learn from you. Seriously .... Your Mama
