Kumquat Infiltration*

The kumquat takes advantage of those "First Three Issues FREE!" offers from trashy magazines. It actually works out nicely, she gets her trashy magazine fix without actually having to spend more than the cost of a stamp to send in the cancellation doohickey at the end of the three months.

The above strategy is responsible for this current tidbit. The kumquat is in the process of receiving some issues of Elle magazine. Elle magazine has an advice column. The columnist tends to address her advice-seekers with cutsey terms. This month, she referred to someone as "[Advice-seeker], my kumquat."

The kumquat is now not only a citrus who dances. She is a term of endearment.

*The original title that was considered for this post was a variation of "The Invasion of the Body Snatchers": "The Invasion of the Kumquat Snatchers." However, upon consideration, that seemed a little too suggestive, even for the kumquat.

I think my favorite term of endearment is from the Germans: schnecke. Oh, my little snail! Sigh. ;-)

Well, the kumquat is certainly moving up in the world, isn't she?! Congradulations.
