In less than two weeks I’m going to see my sister and frister (friend/sister), both of whom live out of state. We don’t see each other often, but when we do, we laugh the entire time we’re together.

When I was a kid, I found Linda (frister) and introduced her to Diana (sister). They were only a year apart but I was 6 years younger. Even though they were older, they included me in their activities. Now that we’re adults, the age gap has disappeared. We’re still the best of friends.

I’m so excited about seeing them, you might say I’m happy as a clam. Of course, that’s not what I would say but the meaning is the same.

Fractured Cliché: Happy as a ham

Correct Cliché: Happy as a clam

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,


In the words of Hallmark - If you're happy and you know it, clamp your hams

In the immortal words of Hallmark –

If you’re happy and you know it, clamp your hams
