The Jiminy Cricket used as the title is meant to substitute for inappropriate expletives, not to refer to the conscience dude that hung out with Pinocchio!
“Jiminy Cricket!” is also better than what any of us said when we heard that Phil had injured his knee while playing basketball. The injury will require surgery, crutches, a brace and months of rehab! Phil is our niece Kate’s husband. Does that make Phil our nephew-in-law? No matter, he’s family and an incredibly nice guy! Oh, did I mention that they just moved to a second floor walkup apartment?
We send Phil our best healing thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery.
Be careful on those new stairs Phil!
