- I have discovered a new diet. It is called the Don't Bring Any Food To Work, Forget Your Wallet, And Don't Have Time To Find Someone Who Can Lend You Any Lunch Money Diet. 100% success guaranteed. May cause stomach to growl audibly while talking to your boss. Send me $29.99 and I'll tell you how it works!

- A mother-in-law who doesn't comment on the above is an even more wonderful thing.
