cj: that it, without a doubt, one of the worst jokes i have seen or heard - hahahahahahaha!

boneman - you're right - i'd best head back to walgreens - wonder what the look on the kid's face will be this time?

/t. : i am always prepared - kind of like a boy scout.

CT: no indeed, sir, i am not a cheap date, but i certainly run by my own rules.

and lest we all forget - this is a blog, and it's filled with an odd mixtre of fact, fiction, and exaggeration. all is never quite what it appears to be.

though i will say - it is indeed true - the City is my lover and I am quite enamored of it.

of course, this now leads me to the premise that fiction though not real, can be true. while fact, though real, might not be true.
