    One word instead of five.

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

        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.

                        Meh. It was nearly a month after that the cemetery exploded so it can hardly be blamed on you.


                        Still, next time, use one of these just to be on the safe side

                          I didn't notice when it happened. I just knew that I posted in a nice but inactive thread in the memorial garden, it caught someone's attention, and after... well, I honestly have no idea what all of that was... it ended up in the psych ward.

                          By the way, whatever happened to the locker room? I remember all of the posts that went off the rails use to end up there.

                            The padded room (psych ward) is pretty much for that.
