So Mrs. Bill C had a heck of an idea last night. With all of the ailments striking different Rock M'ers (and their children) at the moment, it's time for a bit of a Good Feelings Thread. So let's share some funny recent stories.
My contribution: Each day Rally Baby goes down for her nap around 11:30 or so (really, anywhere between about 10:30 and 1:30), and my mother and I have taken to watching some TV (or in my case, listening to TV with head in laptop) during the 30-90 minute nap. Yesterday we were watching Bourdain's The Layover episode from Atlanta. At the end, Bourdain and Alton Brown go to the Clermont Lounge, one of the more famous, unique strip clubs in the country. Rally Baby, who has taken to clapping anytime anybody is cheering on television begins to wake up around this time and, hearing the yelling in the background of the Clermont Lounge, begins to clap.
Or, to put it another way, I was watching footage from a strip club on television with my mother, and my daughter started applauding. Your turn.

I would love to read the Hosick/Printz story, but I've still apparently used my 10 free clicks (even though I'm a damn subscriber). I'm sure it's good, though!
