So I went to my grandmother and asked why SHE cut the ends off the pot roast, and she said, "because that's what my mother did". Bridget: So, people already perceive my dating Donny Doyle as a slap in the face! Back then we didn't share our deep personal feelings, our deepest conversations usually revolved around the Tigers bull pen. There's not a feeling that my kids are afraid to express over and over and over.
Occasionally Cameron comes up with a particularly apt turn-of-phrase that evokes a chuckle, or an extraordinarily inappropriate one that brings smiles.

At most I thought we could be friends, but I never would have dreamed that Bridget Hennessy could like someone (Bridget kisses him) ...
I mean, gosh, you're beautiful, you're sweet, and you're smart.
He has somehow managed to crawl into the confused, everything-is-a-crisis minds of teenage girls to help frustrated fathers better understand where they stand in the lives of their estrogen-driven daughters.
As a father of three teenage girls myself, I commiserated with his hilarious descriptions of radical mood swings, theatrical expressions, rolling eyes, exaggerated sighs and "that's not my job" attitudes.
