More Ben-isms: Round Five!

BEN-HI have formed a meaningful relationship with my basil plant and named it Faulty. I can’t bring myself to use its leaves in tomato and basil salads any more. The clincher is it whispered “thank you”.

I just had a powerful near death experience (“NDE”). A hearse drove past.

Two to go on my Saturday task list: iron a shirt and propose an alternative (quasi-Diophantine) proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem.

Pseudo-philosophical insight of the day: the larger the avocado, the bigger the stone.
