    Once upon a time, long, long ago, there were 2 holy men traveling together through the countryside. They came upon a beautiful young woman sitting and sobbing by the side of a stream. She said she was afraid of drowning and asked them if they would help her cross to the other side of the water. Without saying a word, one of the monks picked up the girl and carried her to the other side of the stream where he gently put her down. She thanked him and went on her way. The two men then continued their journey. After a while, the monk said to the one who had carried the young woman, “How could you do such a thing? We have taken vows of chastity. It is forbidden to even talk to a woman let alone touch one.” The other monk lovingly replied, “When I came to the other side of the stream, I put her down. Why are you still carrying her?”

    Good save by Toggle. His brain isn’t impaired that way. Just the connexion in his speech centers. The Wirnke and Borca’s areas to the verbal complex.

    Good story. Sounds Buddhist to me. The story, if not the girl, is worth carrying.

    This is a smart group. I would say that only 97.9999999999% won’t get it.

    Generally speaking, Toggle complimented Drew’s looks, Alex got jealous, Toggle later informed Alex that he wasn’t interested in Drew and Alex had no competition. Alex is over her jealousy and Toggle acknowledges that he prefers Alex over Drew. ’Nuff Said!!!!

    Our old Catholic Priest used to use this story in his sermons from time to time. It’s a good one.

    Good lesson in life — some people create problems where none exist.
