And me with no cyanide tooth capsule

The Minneapolis public school system offers community education classes for adults - which is brilliant, affordable, and explains that one Simpson's episode.

I'm taking Pilates, and my instructor is an Eastern European woman with a strong accent. We bend and stretch, keeping our core strong and our breathing regular. She directs us to lay on our mats.

"Stretch your arms over your head and make your legs long," she exhorts. "Like that thing - you know - when they tie you down and pull?"

Arms over my head and legs long, I lift my head. "The torture device?"

Sometimes irony just makes life worth living.
