    Wasn’t it Trump who said you would be winning so much that you would get tired of winning? Don’t worry, everything will be fine so long as you keep sending your kids to college in New England and make sure you give them a credit card for “emergencies”. I see an awful lot of emergencies at liquor stores Thursday-Saturday during the school year.

    Hypothetical Montclair Girl Scout cookie sales meeting:

    Troop Leader: Next year girls, we were thinking about sponsoring the funding of a single Montclair classroom through sales of Girl Scout Cookies!

    Scouts: Yeah!!

    Troop Leader: For every $4 box of cookies we sell, 84 cents will go towards the classroom.

    Scouts: Yay!! Troop leader, how many boxes of cookies will we have to sell to fund one classroom?

    Troop Leader: 476,190 boxes.

    Girl Scouts: Is that a lot?

    Back in prehistoric times my university ID was uniquely also a “UniversityCard” through which on campus expenses could be paid. The drinking age was 18, and the university dining hall served ‘dimies’ which were tiny cups of beer for a dime.

    More than once on receiving my statement my mother commented on how much I ‘ate’ on Fridays, especially for being on a meal plan.
