      But most folks will know what I meant without having to resort to a dictionary -- which sorta kinda defeats the purpose of using apotropaic.

      I'm always still in trouble again

      "You're by far the worst poster on TWeb" and "TWeb's biggest liar" --starlight (the guy who says Stalin was a right-winger)
      "Overall I would rate the withdrawal from Afghanistan as by far the best thing Biden's done" --Starlight
      "Of course, human life begins at fertilization that’s not the argument." --Tassman

        Once gain, my little story about communication....

        While eating breakfast in the local greasy spoon, I overheard a couple of little old ladies at the next table bragging about their pastor, whom I knew.

        At one point, one of them gushed "why, he's so smart, most of the time I don't understand a word he's saying!"

        So much for communication! No matter how smart you are, there's an art to communicating in a way that's clear to your intended audience.
