We have 12 pair of them. Two of the pairs “float.” They are essential for breathing and the protection of our heart, lungs, and other vital organs. God took one from Adam to create Eve. Restaurants serve them: short, spare, baby back, and prime. And some condoms are accentuated by them. Oh, did I mention, chiropractors adjust them. What am I talking about? I’m not “ribbing” you, I’m talking about our ribs.
