I Know About the Pure Food and Drug Act, But . . .
Better Than Testosterone?
A colleague and I were grousing about getting old and stiff, and I complained about writer's cramp, a particular affliction of the composition instructor, so I've had to learn to be very concise in my comments on student papers, and I mentioned this to my colleague.
In response, she advised me to take glucosamine, informing me that it helps keep her writing hand flexible.
I promised to think about her suggestion, but I got busy and forgot . . . till Wednesday, when she sent an email reminder:
Have you started taking glucosamine?!?! This is the holy one I take!I replied:
I haven't started yet -- I'm not pure enough to imbibe something holy!One can't be too careful about ingesting holiness. Women are angels, therefore pure and holy enough for glucosamine, but we devilish men . . . well, you see the profane problem.
Meanwhile, the lady doth protest that "holy" was a typo intended as "only," but that's just too much -- too outrageous a typo!
