A counter to those who have rudely suggested I tend to be verbose

    I posted this earlier and it disappeared.

    If Rob sees this he will object to you writing humor. I do.

    I loved the Advance Math. What an ending it would make for a story.
    Your verbosity has never been an issue, Scribester. We all love your lengthier stuff, It just means we read one posting per night instead of seven (& rudeness was never a factor in the 'mentioning'; you think too much. Man Cave disciplinary hearing for you Al).

    I don't object to Al writing humour, Don (no self-respecting Englishman would spell that word wrong). Though I do think you should change 'Advanced Math' to advanced Meth. I misread the title and thought it was brilliant. reminded me of the hit TV show 'Breaking Bed'.

    Very, very different, Al; but very good.
    Rob, when did you become a "self-respecting Englishman?"

    Alex, I don't want you to thinking I am jealous in any way. Funny is funny no matter who writes it .I just think that you were trying to horn in on Rob and me. Well, maybe "horn in" isn't a wise choice of words.
    Hey guys, thanks for reading. I'll try not to 'horn in' on anyone's literary turf -- just send me notarized copies of your deeds and there'll be no overt trespassing. And, Don, I've always found 'self-respecting' to be the quickest and easiest way to get any; maybe Rob also discovered that. Rob, still working on 'Advanced Meth' -- a title in search of a text. Best to both of you and yours in the new year. Keep writing & keep us laughing.
    lol Quite good. Loved it. Oh, and I do not think you are verbose.
