Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

If there's ever a time you feel the stepfamily disconnect, it's at the dinner table. You've got to sit there and look at your differences until you've downed your lasagna as fast as possible. You learn that every planet teaches manners differently, and the one your new alien family members came from probably either didn't teach them at all (making dinner a revolting nightly replay of a pie-eating contest), or taught them too well (making dinner a new Olympic sport called Every Food Has a Rule).
