    Very nice, GMa. :) I always enjoy seeing how the curator of the meme handles her prompts.

    I especially emphasize with the fellow’s “making a lateral move” as I dream of these moves sometimes. That generally involves me flying out of a window.

    The first two warmed me up with chuckles, and then the third one made me really laugh out loud. And, of course, I love the rhyming titles. I really like the “hit a glass ceiling” play on words, and the football allusion with “making a lateral move.” Your neurons were really fired up today, Grandma!

    Stuck on you! That’s a good one.
