"MESSAGE OF THE DAY" FROM OJ SIMPSON
I had dinner with a friend last night who shared with me what I like to call a “only in LA” moment.

Me: (laughing harder)
Preschool: He said that you told him that he had chicken pox.
Me: No... no. He doesn't have chicken pox. He has fleas.
Preschool: Oh good. I'll send him back to class.
