Seems we have two types of clients:

A. Calls a 7:45 wondering where we are as they booked us for 8:00; and,

B. Calls at 9:30 wondering where we are as they booked us for 8:00.

When I forgot about the booking, I appreciate client A.

How do tribbles spread all over a space ship, ride lifts, climb walls, poles… one can’t even see legs.

And are they edible for people? Food supply problem solved.

So I ended up in the hospital last week. While I was there I asked a cute nurse for a little kiss. She said, "No Way! I shouldn't even be in the bed with you!"

Default Chlorine smell in a pool?

The only way chlorine smells in a pool is if there has been urine added.

Trichloramine is the byproduct of chlorine and urine mixing.

Otherwise. Chlorine in water is odourless.

Who knew.
