"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. "Groucho Marx
I don't know how many places I have said this to you now, at least a few, or how many times, but the wish is sincere. I hope you never get tired of hearing how happy people are for you. I sure can't seem to stop saying it!

Dad: He hasn't? What has he been doing?
Mom: Picking his butt all day.
Other one I remember from a cell phone conversation overhead in the Esplanade: "He can bend over and (obsenity omitted) himself for a full 10 minutes."
Um, wow. I thought I had overheard some weird stuff, but I have never overheard anything like that second one, ever. Glad about that.
