I'm betting there are others you don't realize are references, especially if you didn't know "d'oh" was one.It's like a cow's opinion.
D'oh!
I'm not gonna lie to you, my e-bro; it was excellent. The leftover ribs made for a tasty lunch this afternoon, too.
I took my son on a hike earlier, and now I'm relaxing for a few minutes while my BBQ sauce simmers, the ribs/corn/sweet potatoes cook, and the fresh-squeezed lemonade chills. My Sunday afternoon game is strong.
Also, this makes me wish I were text bros with some of you wine guys. I'd like to get the missus something pretty exceptional, but my ability to pick a bottle is limited to "pretty good." I needs halp!
It crossed my mind, but it doesn't usually work like that.

Cousin can't do it. Done. See you at 6:00.But I'm marking the liquor bottles.How in the hell do you think we found the one who bailed? I need solutions, H, not retread ideas.
Thanks, dudes. We're currently waiting to see if my cousin can help us out. She's sat for us before and is awesome with the kids, but requesting a 20-something to give up Saturday night on short notice is really asking a lot. I'm not too optimistic. I told MrsG that, if all else fails, we were set to spend a pretty handsome sum on dinner tonight, so we can use the money we'll save on that and the babysitter on some pretty excellent wine and booze to celebrate with at...
