My granny passed away yesterday. She was almost 93. She taught me many important things, like the fact that people never really stop smoking they just quit buying their own. She also advised me to wear a large wide brimmed hat when driving a car, because that makes male drivers forgive most mistakes you may make on the road. I think she was speaking from experience. She travelled all over the world. She had 5 kids. She trekked in Himalaya in her 70s. She read extensively. She had so many friends.
I remember her telling a story of how she, as a young woman, once went to a dance and was asked to dance by a man with a very high regard for himself. He asked her for her name. She replied "Petersson" which wasn't her name, but a very common Swedish name, just to spite him. He left her there and then on the dance floor. No lie.

Joel: My brain is not so good.
Me: Really? I haven't noticed. It seems fine to me.
Joel: You know when people tell me stuff, I don't remember it.
Me: Sure you do.
Joel: Not really. But if someone says "damn!" then I remember. Even if it was a really long time ago.
Me: A damn fine brain.
Two extremely well dressed HIGH MAINTENANCE women in superior clothing talk about shoes. One towers in some kind of stilettos, the other is wearing paillette platforms.
Platforms: But are yours comfy?
Stilettos: You get used to it. Yours?
Platforms: These are SO comfy. With platforms, the heel and toe are almost at the same level, yet they make you taller. So great. On the other hand I fall over all the time.
Stilettos: Tell me about it!
Platforms: And it's quite some distance to fall too!

Conversation with son.
Joel: I am a new Superhero!!!!!!
Me: Wow. Who are you?
Joel: I am STRONGman!
Me: Wow indeed.
Joel: Unfortunately, I use my powers to do evil.
Me: What kind of evil do you do, STRONGman?
Joel (pausing to think of the most evil he can imagine):
I...I tear pages out of books!

Sorry, this post can not be translated.
Mötte gammal vän som lite skamset men ändå skrattande berättade:
"Emi, nu går jag officiellt in i tantåldern - har köpt Silvia-sjal att ha på jobbet. Jag fryser så mycket."
Här visar hon plagget som avslutade hennes ungdom. Samtidigt berättade hon att hennes man gjort något oerhört ungdomligt natten innan. Vad kan jag inte berätta, men det var inget snuskigt.

Dear Gooh! (interesting choice of name if you plan on going international), do you need my copywriting help? Your suggestion seems a bit lame.
This is what this sign advertising Gooh's fancy pre-packed meals says something along the lines of:
"Tip! For a more luxe dining experience, serve on a plate!"
Did you pay someone to come up with that one?
I'd write that for free!
-e, will work for food.
