Beyond Our Control

I called the IRS yesterday and got the following message:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we cannot answer your call.

That’s it. No “leave a message and we’ll call you back” or “call back during regular business hours”…What does this mean?


A Type of Rodent

Julia: On our hike we saw a skeleton!
Rich: What kind of skeleton?”
Julia: I think it was a stoat, but I’m not 100% sure.
Rich: A what?
Julia: A stoat…but I’m not sure.
Rich: What’s a stoat?
Julia: You know, a stoat, S-T-O-A-T. It’s a type of rodent.
Rich: What did I tell you about using words I don’t know? Just say “rodent.”
