    A true test discipline is to boldly say 'nothing at all'. Key word being 'nothing'. ...... That includes even those phony 'Uh huh's' of agreement. ........ Be prepared, because THAT is aggravating, and you may be 'forced' to respond.

    Now go forth, test your skills, and post back your results in two weeks.

    I do not kill animals, nor do I pay other people to kill them for me.

    That's when you get slapped with the charge "It's not what you didn't say, it's how you didn't say it".

    The proper response to any- ANY- question about clothing or fashion is, "It doesn't do you justice." or, "You could make a burlap sack look good."

    Sounds positive- but doesn't really mean anything.

    My 'lil old scrawny blonde headed wife has always had some fiestiness in her bones, but generally very kind and sweet. After all the restrictions caused by this election infection, and all the rioting, she has become a Karen, who is anti-masking to the "Nth: degree and ready to shoot someone, anyone who messes with her. She is a very good shot with her model 85, point shoots extremely well.

    I be like, "Yes Mam!" "No Mam!" whenever she is around. I don't have a whole lot of my lifetime left, but don't intend to make it any shorter!

    I got a good one....

    Trying to figure out a woman's way of thinking is a life long journey. Just when you think you've got them
    figured out.
