The big salad

Today I ate a big salad.  It was "in a big bowl with lots of stuff in it."  I took a picture of it.  I was thinking of sending the picture to my family with that quote (originally said by the character Elaine Bettis on Seinfeld).

My family loves to quote things: shows, movies, songs, books, each other.  We can have whole conversations where we reference Seinfeld or Everafter or Napoleon Dynamite.  Some of our other favorites are Pride and Prejudice and Are You My Mother?  We are quite eclectic in our foundational knowledge of quotable lines.  I like to think that we are a fairly clever bunch.  However, now that I sit back and examine it, maybe we just can't come up with our own material.


  1. I think you should write an entire post using quoted lines - I bet it would be as much fun to read as it would be to write!

  2. It's always interesting to me, the different ways that families connect and define themselves. Your family definitely seems like an eclectic crew! PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, ARE YOU MY MOTHER and pop culture! I wonder how many slices you could get out of the different lines your family shares!
