you are not that bald.... more sparsely furnished!


Wait, I'm less sparsely furnished! Take me instead.


AH the truth will out!


No! No! Less means more! Look up 'sparse' or you will get a C- !

Heeeelllllloooo!

Sorry, but JimBob seems to have dropped off again. I suspect the plus-fours are cutting off some circulation.

Thank you, my dear Shazza.  But then we need to hang a hat on the knob - it looks as if Demo has been "keyholeing" on us again.

Excellent, JimBob!

But not so fast. You're a-l-m-o-s-t there, so be patient.

Now, JB, as I so clearly wrote, "less sparsely" means.......?

C'mon, we all know you can do it! Let's earn that C+ !

If you read the post carefully, HE is YOU lol.



you [addressing JimBob] are not that bald.... more sparsely furnished!


Wait, I'm less sparsely furnished! Take me instead.


However, JimBob, you are to be commended on your clever camouflaging segues, so...B- !  (I am soooooo generous)

Won't you look a tad silly prancing around the bedroom with your hat on it? Cute trick, but I say focus, focus, focus!

Is that why you reposed the two posts above after no one got them the first time around? Hanging buns?

No just one. And I wanted to separate the *old* from the new. And since it worries you, I got rid of that one.

BTW it's re-posting not re-posing.
