GeoffS, if you keep coming back...
I might learn how to spell!!!
Here I was trying to come up with a new definition for
"drunik-a-logs." (I noticed my error before I read your post! Well, part of my error. The drunik-a part! )
That's what I like about public speaking and public writing!
It keeps me humble by showing my rough edges!
What can I say? I went to public schools and came to the classes late and left them early!
The only reason that I kept going back was to get my report card signed!
See. I was acting like a newcomer before I drank!
I once had a girlfriend that was an English teacher. I felt so inadequate, wrong and humiliated that I stopped talking to her!
She begged me to keep coming back -- and promised me that she wasn't judging me like I was judging me -- but, I felt too low on the totem pole when I was with her! Nice girl. It was a good thing that I moved on! She deserved better and finally found it.
