  1. OMG, I am dying laughing – I read this totally at the right time. I had just hung up with my mother for the 7th time today – also all about the same subject, analyzing which Polish priest in Chicago may be the best one to marry me. I finally told her I needed to do other things but before she hung up the 7th time, she responded, "dobrze, pogadamy pozniej. Ale odbieraj telefon."
