I love the Simpsons but don't watch much TV in general. Only when I'm out in public or visiting someone. I gave up cable in 1988 when I started law school and have never looked back.
So let's continue with the game. Regarding your wish, my response obviously should have been:
Granted! Well go ahead, do your worst!
I wish I could be more sensitive to how others may interpret my posts, such that I don't offend anyone (Samgotit in this case).
Granted, but I may have been overly sensitive in the first place. I was at the mall in the Hallmark store. Somehow, in a daze, I became locked in at closing time. No one seemed to notice me. During the next 16 hours I read every card in the place. When those ran out, I went for the Chicken Soup for the Soul
series. You can imagine this made me very sensitive. I absolutely believe, now, that Mcmanus meant absolutely nothing by it. Irony is I've also made some wishes that were perceived as insensitive in this very thread. Inflection, tone, spirit, and all that juicy stuff is sometimes hard to impossible to get across.
Just to be clear, I PM'ed Mcmanus simply because I missed judged his tone and I was a little concerned about him; again, too much Chicken Soup for the Soul
. I didn't do it out of some need to be the "cool" guy who wants to call out a moderator. I would not have bothered to say anything if He or his post had no value to me.
Anyway, the earth continues to spin on its' axis and I continue to gluttonously over eat at buffets.
I wish I could muster up any amount of restraint when at Shoney's breakfast bar.
