My favorite AI hopeful won last night. Because of Scotty's distinctive voice with the country edge, I didn't think he would be able to maneuver through all the other music genres. I was wrong (yay!).
Mark has sometimes used the expression, "Well, that's a pip." It was one of those phrases where I understood he was pretty much saying, "that sucks," but I always wondered about the origin. Who knew I would find the answer in Sports Illustrated?
"In 1925, the Yankees rested former home run champ Wally Pipp, who had a headache. His replacement, a 21-year-old and unproven Lou Gehrig, kept the spot for 2,130 straight games." Bummer.
This little article was in SI right about the time of the Royal Wedding. Wondering why? Because SI's question was this: To be Wally Pipped or to be Pippa'd, which is worse?
The next paragraph said, "At her April wedding to Prince William, bride Kate Middleton was upstaged by her young sister, Pippa, who dropped jaws with a shape-hugging, low-cut white gown." Bummer.
I prefer to put a positive spin on it and be Sherbet Pipped.
You can never get too many hugs.
this would pop up!
This is my family and I love them to pieces. It's a tough job. Someone has to do it.
