Ever since the tower of Babel,
husbands and wives, parents
and children, have often found
it difficult to communicate
positively with one another.
Many hot, insulting, degrading,
ego-deflating words have crept
unfortunately into our language
causing much family unrest and
Perhaps it would benefit us to change
some of these debasing words into numbers.
"432 up, dear, we don't want to be 731 for dinner."
"There you go again, 849, 849, 849."
"I am not 849ing. But, you know how much
your mother 947 us to be 504."
"Listen, that 318 436 247 never has dinner
ready on time."
"Maybe so, but I don't think it was
necessary for you to refer to her as a 318 436 247."
"You're right I simply over-reacted. Please forgive
my 619 language. My mother-in-law is not really a
318 436 247. In fact, she's very sweet and nice."
"And, you're very sweet yourself dear. Oh! 884!
I just broke a nail."
