You nailed it - that is sangrain to a 'T'. As for you, it's more like the seemingly kind stranger with the disarming smile who just needs help looking for his adorable little lost puppy, and oh, how about a piece of candy while we go looking?

That's up for debate. hehe

Anita, it's nice to see you again :)
Thanks Blurred, I definitely stop in on a regular basis to check on my favorites, those who are still here. Always educational and entertaining.

I like learning what’s new with you, I love your forthright and humorous take on life, so it’s always fun to see what you’re up to. Image :)

Me??? That's not me at all. Besides, I tried that line on you and it didn't work. But eventually, I'll come up with something... 8)

That's really kinda creepy, tent...

Maybe try something like, "Is that a mirror in your pocket, cuz I can see myself in your pants..."

But then again, that may be a little too cliche for Anita.

How about, "Do you have any raisins? No? How about a date?"

Cute lines, but I'm an equal opportunity whatever works at the moment sort. I'm old enough to have tried most of 'em, and now it is just variations on a theme. Trouble is, a beautiful woman like Anita has heard every possible man-lie out there and she is (justifiably) suspicious. But a challenge is a challenge! In truth, I'm like most men and fail 99.9% of the time, but as my grandfather once observed: You ask 'em all. Some will, some won't."

My favorite is an old Groucho Marx line: "Do you know the difference between sex and a ham sandwich?" (answer no) "Then how about having lunch with me today?"

:lol: A friend of mine, who happens to be an older male (somewhere in his late 50's, early 60's, I believe) once told me that back in his partying days, he sat outside the women's bathroom in a bar and asked every woman who walked by, "You wanna fuck?"

He said he got slapped six times, and the seventh woman said, "Let me finish my beer."

I have to admit, that is one line I never tried - not because it eventually wouldn't work, I just wouldn't think very much of a woman who said "yes". It is the pursuit that's half the fun. Hell, more than half. But I'm old with quaint ways.

Actually, Blurred, with Tent it's more like; "Do you have any raisins? No? Would you like one?

But back to my original point: Well, Blurred, now that we're standing here in the middle, with Tent on one side and Anita on another, I'd like you to really get acquainted with these two fine individuals, study them, learn from them, and whenever you're in a crisis of conscience, reach out to them. As you can clearly see, these are serious people who choose not to take themselves too seriously (that's important). They are obviously of good humor, and very accommodating. I just wanted to really introduce them into your life (Rainey is a backup plan). Get acquainted.

As for xzc; he is a nice young man and I don't know if you ever got around to communicating with him. To be fair, he may get on your nerves by trying to take himself way too seriously. He's just trying to impress you. Just imagine yourself being a cat and he a ball of yarn. He's quite funny once he's comfortable and less defensive. And if you're too busy with your artisan pursuits to engage him, that's cool, just let him know.

LoL, well, my friend Bob used to be quite a drunk. He's changed his ways, but drunk people don't generally look for quality, they just want someone willing, you know?

xzc and I are in contact, I've enjoyed talking to him. A couple weeks ago we got into a heated little debate, it was quite fun. I find him to be an intelligent and altogether worthwhile person to converse with.

Oh Oh,

**WARNING!**

Be careful Anita! He's trying to be nice! Do you hear slithering and see the grass waving? C'mon over here. I'll protect you... 8)

:lol:
I think I’ve gotta go with “hacked account.” Some prankster apparently doesn’t realize that part of sangrain’s inimitable charm is his utter lack of – hmm, how can I put this delicately? – benevolence and sincerity. And on top of that, this hacker actually brought the thread back on topic [sort of] – clearly a poseur who has not studied sangrain’s signature style nearly well enough.

[Now now sangrain, you know we’re just giving you a hard time – we love all of your many different facets, even the sweet, helpful ones.]

Ha! [-X JT, I trust you about as far as I can throw you.

And besides, aren't you the one who told me he gives away the best apples?

You don't trust me? I'm crushed. Still, I had to give it a try. looks at potential list
I didn't say anything about apples! I didn't even go near that tree till you gave me that come hither look. I didn't even know what an apple was till the first bite and then everything went to hell in a hand basket. It was you succumbing to the wiles of that... that...

Ummm,your fig leaf has slipped a little... Where was I? Oh yeah, now I remember... uhhh... Will you PLEASE fix the fig leaf? This is tough enough without any primal distractions. Oh hell. Forget it. I have to go weed the friggin garden.

Weeding the garden behind Anita's fig leaf? Why, Tentative, you dirty dog, you.

Oh, Blurred, I forgot to mention; they're modest, too, as evidenced by their inability to take compliments (I guess I don't blame them).

But yeah, you're in good hands (and don't waste too much personal emotional investment with doomnaysayer, or doomsnaysayer, or whatever he's calling himself now, unless you're working on your argumentation skills, or treating that engagement as pure mental exercise. The kid's very bright but It's possible he's stuck in cyclical loop).
