    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?

    Here is the reason:

    mica |ˈmīkə|
    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.
