    So I was thinking-something I should either do more seriously or cut back on entirely-anyways, why are countertops always Formica? Why not Formimi? Forsally? Forsythia…Forpete’s sake?

      It's probably stuck in one of those "Countertops for Dummies or Idiots" Books..... they sell like crazy so they must have all the answers!

    Here is the reason:

    mica |ˈmīkə|
    noun
    a shiny silicate mineral with a layered structure, found as minute scales in granite and other rocks, or as crystals. It is used as a thermal or electrical insulator.

    Mystery solved and not so ishy.

    It's not only the words, I guess a thesaurus helps sometimes. I find the editing to be a bear sometimes.

    I have a son named Micah.  For the past 16 years we've got a lot of mileage out of 'for Micah' jokes.  What's with this leftover pizza?  Oh, it's formicah!  Corny but hilarious.
