Every once in a while I have an idea for something that I think would be fun on a t-shirt or on your iPhone wallpaper. This one is not original. It’s something of a running joke in my family.
A few years ago, listening to CBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics, my older sister asked, “What’s the luge?”
She had never heard of it before.
Not missing a beat, my mother answered her, “It’s when you don’t winge!”
My sister was not impressed. As far as I know, she still hates that joke. My mother, on the other hand, thinks it’s hysterical, and she will explain in detail why it is such a good joke to you if you don’t laugh the first time you hear it.
