Crooks n' Nannies

I was talking to my wife in the shower this morning (hey, we're in a water conservation rule here in Florida, We're only trying to protect your children's future) and had the following conversation.

Tom: Did you know that if you change up nooks and crannies you get crooks and nannies?

Erin: What in the world got you to think about that?

Tom: I don't know.  I was thinking about nooks and crannies for some reason and realized you could change he words...  I wonder if that's where the English muffin people came up with the name.

Erin: Ha, why in the world would the Thomas' English Muffin people start with crooks and nannies?

Tom: It makes sense with those marketing people.  I'd bet they were all crooks and had nannies watch their children.  It's only a natural progression I guess.  I mean, who knows what those marketing people think.  They don't exactly have their heads screwed on right.

Erin: I don't think it's the marketing people who don't have their heads screwed on tight.

Man I love my life.  Being married rocks.

I think you need to check your nooks and crannies - you listed it twice. Makes it a little confusing until you read further.

And...*clears throat* I worked in Marketing. :)

T2, maybe it was just "water on the brain", but perhaps not... It's possible I'm a very distant relative of Norm Crosby who plays with words like that all the time. I do it too. Anyway, I just wanted to say "I think being married rocks too!" Hope you're enjoying your time in FL. Peace.
