Yes Mark, absolutely agree with your larger point, it is right on the mark, so to speak.  But as to that other thing ... I did go through the alternatives before I wrote that ... let's see ...

oops, someone is annoying me claiming my attention ... be back with you in a sec or two ...

Okay, if it was a double bluff, then Gray's still bluffing ... if it started out as a bluff, but some greater poet (I'm not using the A-word) convinced you it was a thing worth making, she could either have been right, wrong or bluffing ... if she was right, it was a bluff worth making, but still a bluff ... if she was wrong, it was still a bluff ... if she was bluffing, the thing was a double bluff and you were out in the woods ... if Gray believed the any of the bluffs, which I think he did, he was also out in the woods ... if Gray did not believe any of the bluffs, but pretended he did, he was bluffing ... so either you bluffed Gray, or Gray bluffed us ... but if A-person bluffed you and Gray and you sincerely passed that on, I was wrong, there is a third alternative, it's a triple bluff, and it's all Amie's fault.

Mark, eric, thatollie, and Jade:

I really appreciate all four of you for providing input into a lively [i]arguement[/i] debate discussion[/i] brouhaha (or would that be brew-hee-hee?).

This thread has certainly been made interesting and entertaining by everyone's comments and banter.

Kool, eric.

Let's blame Amie (since she did not contribute to this thread, unless my tired old eyes deceive me). After all, if Amie hasn't given an opinion here, then by all that is fair and right, she should be blamed for all or none of what has been stated.  :D

Better yet, let's blame it on the rain (or depending on where one lives, on the lack there of). That would make more sense than blaming a brilliant poet who has not commented as of yet on this thread.
 ;)

No, I think we should blame Amie for the rain, too (or snow in my case--the mountains have had a good share lately).  She is brilliant, isn't she?  I have no compunction in saying that.  And since I worship her, I blame her for everything.  That's only fair, isn't it?

p.s.  Take a close look at the old posts to gauge Amie's nefarious role in this particular matter.

She is worshipful, yes? :D

(Is worshipful a word? I suppose I could ask the Most Holy High See's Counsel on Epistles or one of my former English Professors, if I can find one of them?  Or I could just look it up.)

And she is very talented.

She is nefarious.  Worshipful is a word, but it describes the worshipper or his act, not the object of the veneration.  I spoke of her in a worshipful manner.  To say she was worthy of worship, you would say venerable or something.  But she might not like the sound of that, heh heh.  But I am sure she's sick of this, so let's quit it.

Thanks for the English lesson, eric. I've learned something new.

I agree; Amie is probably sick of this. Best let it rest.  ;)

Hello, eric.  I thought your name was Gray.  How are you this fine evening?  Well, actually, don't answer that.  Just fine, thank you.  There you go ... is the echo chamber working?

At the risk of beating a dead horse...

Jade, I think you are a wonderful beater of dead horses.  The item you found proves at least three things:

1.  We should never feel the need to be consistent when it does not suit us.
2.   Amie is way smarter than me, John, and Gray combined.
3.  You are also nefarious, but in a good way.

(That is just a joke, Jade.  You are not nefarious at all.  You are actually perfect in every way ...)

nefarious - extremely wicked or villainous; iniquitous

I had to look up the meaning... it hurts...  :D

I actually totally missed all this dialogue until just this moment. Thanks for all the compliments guys :)

re: the OP, I'm a bit lost now... but it looks like Jade's got things sorted out ;D
