    Oh, that’s what that is. Thanks. I wondered.

    Oh dear. This is much worse than Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown. Opus, I’d send you chocolates. And a nice big, mushy Valentine’s Day card.

    I liked diagramming. It appealed to my sense of order and my enjoyment of patterns. But I wonder if all English sentences can be fitted into one. John McWhorter in Words on the Move (great book, btw) says that the word well, in a sentence like “well, horses run fast” is a polite indication that the information about to be imparted may be new or slightly different from the hearer’s expectation. How do you diagram that?

    My maternal grandmother, a talented amateur naturalist whose observations were limited to her garden because of the need to take care of a very sick child, told me she once let a black widow spider bite her on the arm. She said it was no worse than a bee sting(!) (This was in northwest Washington—they may be more venomous in the South.) Personally, I swell badly for yellowjacket stings and even mosquito bites, but I’ve never been bitten by a spider in spite all the cobwebs I’ve knocked down over the years. Some of us react more than others to such assaults. Shaunnmunn, I am sorry to hear about your brown recluse bite. It sounds awful.

    Who seem to be doing something other than dreaming, which makes his inner musings all the sweeter, lol.

    Um, “for me and my friend” is correct. It’s “for my friend and I” that is incorrect. Unless I misunderstood you?

    “For John and I.” The correct way, “For John and me,” is dead in the water everywhere but the most formal written communication.

    Kindly imagine a howling-with-laugher icon, since either gocomics or my notepad won’t let me put one in.
