  3. There was a Christmas version of this card available this year. I’m an editor (read: anal), and my best friend is loosey-goosey about everything. I gave this card to her. She laughed so hard I thought she was going to hurt herself.

    Me: I’m on my way.
    Ohio Friend: Where you at?
    Me: I 75 halfway betwixt Toledo and Dayton.
