Fun meme! I like the run-on sentence answer!

Do you remember a little ditty on either Sesame Street or The Electric Company (showing my age here).... "conjunction, junction what's your function?" The definition of If has that little number stuck in my head now.

Of course, there was also...."t-i-o-n, shun, shun, shun, shun..."


Hope your head is feeling better!

This is a great meme. And like desert diva I like the "run-on sentence." Oh and school house rock is an all time favorite. Growing up I looked forward to seeing them on Saturday mornings.
