I was looking for a post by Billy Dean, that I thought existed, but I could not find it so I found myself browsing through lots of old "world news" thread.
It was fun re-reading posts and replies I had forgotten. I found myself laughing and having a good time.
Here is my first meeting with Jpol, know as JMIF, then.
hobbes commenting on a post by clocker (prior to his bout of election blues):
Jpol responding:He was poking fun at you. You heard it from some commentators, so he countered by saying that he saw it on tv. He mimicked your expression as well, "they seemed to know what they were talking about".
Understated humor, he didn't even throw in a smiley or wink, the bastard.
Jmif....With Clocker around, watch out for sarcasm.
I was explaining "sarcasm" to Jpol who politely corrected me by indicating that it was "irony" and questioning why I couldn't appreciate his.
I find it interesting that you see sarcasm in his reply to me, while failing to see the irony in my reply to him.
Ah, good times, J'pol I hardly knew ya. In fact, earlier in the same thread I had stated:
It is fun to go back and watch us all get to know each other. The "irony" of coaching Jpol on irony.By late, I meant the forum, in general. Notice, I said this was discussed in another THREAD, not post. I was not attempting to patronize, but I just hadn't seen your name in this forum before.
What was a bit sad was all those names I had forgotten about. "Hey, I remember him!" Check all posts by that person, note that he/she is long gone.
