I thought so. No one having endured a night of infant “eloquence”, or the “eloquence” of a toddler would have that sig without 30 or forty apologies or emoticons.
I did debate the apologies, then, just as I was going to click those little emoticons I thought, hold on… I kept it in my pants for this very reason… peaceful nights, restful mornings, the ability to go out when I like. Life is so, so good. :mrgreen: I have nothing to apologise for.
I never said that you NEEDED to do any of those, just that anyone who HAD suffered with the “eloquence” of which you speak would have.
Mine are a bit beyond the age at which this expression is allowed. Yet I find myself frequently cursing the one responsible for teaching them advanced communication skills. When all they could do was be “eloquent” I could at least plead ignorance and the frustration was one of … discomfort shared. But now! Now I hear often just why the are choosing to express their “eloquence” and the frustration is one of … insanity.
Hence my frequenting the vacant place next to one Mr. K.
Ive tried developing really disgusting personal habits, y know, like wearing the same pair of under pants for a fortnight, instead of a week, and then pre-soaking them in the hand basin in the bathroom or the bidet, or hiding all toilet tissue, and replacing them with little squares of newspaper, well Im saying newspaper. What I meant was the Daily Sport. Shuffled together with squares of the Catholic Universe. Nothing works, just floggin the proverbial.
