Never a truer statement was made. For a guy who claimed only yesterday that he 
would rather take a dump away from any chance of it hitting Judy because he 
didn't want his excrement to be somehow sullied by touching her needn't make 
such a laughably obvious statement here or now.

If Judy's was dripping this entire post is about to become a torrent.

Another howler.

Here we go. Get on your wetsuits people.

The process of thinking and writing words are actions, dear boy. What one 
writes is a function of thinking, analyzing (well, maybe not in your case) and 
of translating into language things that are significant to us as human beings. 
 You seem to be underestimating the power of communicating through writing.

Er, half of this is gibberish (you need to write more clearly) and the other 
half is you doing exactly what you claim others do.

Um, Steve and Share?

Can we all agree the dripping has now become a raging river?

No you aren't. You were waaaay behind the 8 ball on that one.

Oh, that takes an 'Einstein' to come up with that third grade pearl of wisdom. 
You paid the guy how much to listen to such inanities?

Oh dear, oh dear. I'll just leave this how it lies. It's too unwieldy to move.

What? What does this mean? 

 Whatever she may try to say *about*

I'll give you that.

Hey, I thought words weren't actions. Words are just words you said. God, now 
you've really confused me. Maybe if I read this post a few more times some sort 
of sense will emerge. I'm an optimist that way. You just HAVE to be with you, 
Barry, I've found.

But I do thank you for this first-of-the-morning writing opportunity. It 
provides such a mixture of humour and unintended irony for me to address. It 
kind of gets the mental muscles flexing before I have to go out and get the 
physical ones going. I wonder if mental muscles exist or if only the physical 
ones count? Both forms this morning are dealing/going to deal with a lot of 
poop, that much I know. Now off to find that pitchfork.
