Do you have to have the last word?

Asked by SuperMouse (30785points) September 10th, 2009

I have a son who has to have the last word. No matter what I say that guy has to come back with something, he just can’t let it be. I’m starting think he gets it from his mother. Even here on Fluther it is hard for me to resist responding even if I know a discussion is fruitless, and it is time to stop. How about you, do you need to have the last word?

Yes. And I will be the only one to answer this question.

jrpowell's avatar

I enjoy not having the last word. I get a few nasty private comments every week. I love that some random fuck is sitting around waiting for me to reply. But I never do.

I use the phrase “Lets agree to disagree.” a lot in real life.

DominicX's avatar

I don’t know if I have to have the last word, but I can’t leave anything unclarified. If someone makes some statement about me that isn’t true, I usually can’t just leave it at that. Once I notice that nothing is going anywhere, however, I’ll stop. Sometimes it makes me feel better ignoring something.

Facade's avatar

Nah, not really

mrentropy's avatar

Depends on how important the issue is.

SeventhSense's avatar

It depends on how important my ego tells me the issue is.

jeanna's avatar

No.

Unless the other person’s words are stupid…

perplexism's avatar

When I was younger, in my teenage years and full of teen angst, I had to have the last word. It would eat me up for hours if I knew I had let you get the best me, even on issues that were really no big deal to make a fuss about or in cases in which I knew I was wrong (something I would never actually bring myself to admit to).

Then I got over being immature.

efritz's avatar

not usually, unless it’s something I care about or I’m being a douchebag. Which rarely happens.

SeventhSense's avatar

@efritz
You rarely care or you’re rarely a douchebag?

DominicX's avatar

@KatawaGrey I love it!

Unfortunately, I’ve been in the position of that stick figure before. :(

mcbealer's avatar

@KatawaGrey ~ too funny

I’m not a last word type person.
My ex is. ‘nuff said ;)

Supacase's avatar

Pretty much what @perplexism said.

I find that I still need to have the last word most often when my husband and I are arguing. There is one particular friend who is always right and always has to have the last word. I find myself going longer with her than anyone else until I realize what I’m doing and then I just stop. It is so silly.

Ivan's avatar

I sense an epic wis.dm thread coming on.

The_Compassionate_Heretic's avatar

There’s no such thing as the last word.

augustlan's avatar

The only times I feel I must continue is if someone is not actually understanding what I’m saying or dismissing it out of hand. As an example, when I was working on convincing my husband that Obama was the best person to vote for, he would dismiss some things I was saying by implying that since I am a Democrat of course I’d believe that. Since he’s a Republican of course he wouldn’t. It was so important to me to break through that barrier, and have a discussions on the actual merits of my position that I couldn’t let it go. We had several knock-down-drag-out fights over the course of a couple of weeks, because I wouldn’t let it go. When he saw how important the issue was to me, he agreed to have a one night only serious discussion of the pros and cons of the candidates. With facts and figures by my side, we had a looong debate, during which I addressed every one of his concerns. He voted for Obama.

YARNLADY's avatar

I’m with @augustlan If they don’t seem to understand what I am saying, I want to make it as clear as I can. As you know from some of my other entries here, it is not always that easy.

XOIIO's avatar

I always do. Yes, I do. Shut up! I’m right. Ha!

brinibear's avatar

I’m the one with the answer. I have to have the last word, and at this moment, I do so beat that!

casheroo's avatar

I agree with @augustlan. I cannot stand when people can’t grasp what I’m saying.

Ivan's avatar

Word + 1

Sampson's avatar

Word x1

Oh, wait!

augustlan's avatar

Word x infinity

I WIN

Sampson's avatar

@augustlan

See this sentence? It contains words. And they are after yours therefore you are no win. :)

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

No, I do not have to have the last word, :::::plugs fingers in ears:::: LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA!

brinibear's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra no, no you don’t ( like a small child imagine, i just pushed you out of the way) I have the say so

Sampson's avatar

“so” is a poor choice for a last word, in my opinion.

YARNLADY's avatar

I have this on my calendar, and I will revisit long after you have all forgotten. hahahahaha

rooeytoo's avatar

I don’t usually but when someone asks a question wanting opinions, I give mine and then someone else specifically addresses me to tell me how wrong my opinion is, then it drives me a little nuts and I have to keep going on and on, telling whomever, it is my opinion dammit and I don’t care if you think it is right or wrong. Stick with your own opinion and let me have mine!

YARNLADY's avatar

@rooeytoo Where’s the fun in that?

mattbrowne's avatar

Word x uncountable infinity.

wundayatta's avatar

I used to get invested in the idea of persuading my opponent to come to see the righteousness of my point of view. Now I realize that I don’t want to be in arguments like that. I prefer to see us as both on the same side, sharing experience. Most opinions, it seems to me, are based on personal experience, not necessarily on reason.

I’ll generally propose my point of view once, and if people respond with anything interesting, I’ll keep the discussion going until we have explored the topic as much as we want to, or can, at that moment. I try really hard not to sucked into arguments where I see the person I’m talking to as an opponent. Of course, if I do, I might fall victim to the “last word” mentality, but eventually, I think I’ll realize what I’m doing, and leave the scene to take on more interesting discussions.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Not always. Especially here on Fluther because I don’t have a way of stopping everyone from adding answers after this one.

YARNLADY's avatar

@daloon Whew! I could use a big dose of that today!

OreetCocker's avatar

Yeah this is gonna run and run…............;-)

wordywordword

FujiokaHaruhi192's avatar

Heck yeah! lol. And I always will too!! If people try to talk back I just snap back at them and then stomp off so they don’t even get enough time to get the last word. Hence, I always win. XDDD

SuperMouse's avatar

The Mouse has spoken. It is time to lock down this thread.

wundayatta's avatar

Once, somewhere else, I bragged about always being the question killer. I.e., after I posted, no one else did. I even asked a question about it, to see if I could kill that question. Since I no longer go there, I’m sure I didn’t end it, but I’m sure it has ended.

Sampson's avatar

@SuperMouse You’re no fun.

brinibear's avatar

lol, I have the last word now!

XOIIO's avatar

Nope. I do.

brinibear's avatar

No, @XOIIO I have it again, I just pushed you out of line :)

wundayatta's avatar

ok, so how long is this going to go on for?

brinibear's avatar

I don’t know, as long as it takes for me to get the last word.

XOIIO's avatar

Word b**tches!

brinibear's avatar

like now! :)

XOIIO's avatar

No, now

@daloon

On wis.dm it went on for well over a year, I believe.

wundayatta's avatar

@XOIIO That was not a word!
@Ivan Ok, that’s scary. I’m going to stop following now. Somebody let me know if any interesting conversation returns.

gailcalled's avatar

(I can promise everyone that there will be nothing interesting said…see last 20 answers^^. Change that to 40. This doesn’t count since I am whispering.)

Ivan's avatar

::something interesting::

XOIIO's avatar

Interesting said 

gailcalled's avatar

(See what I mean?)

KatawaGrey's avatar

Something interesting: Wrigley originally sold laundry detergent which had a stick of gum in the box. No one liked the detergent and people would only buy the box for the gum so Wrigley decided to make gum instead.

XOIIO's avatar

Something else neat: a jellyfish is 98% water!

BTW that’s really neat about the gum.

J0E's avatar

Word.

I think everyone should have to put in an interesting fact to keep people coming back.

Interesting fact: Vibrators were once used as medical instruments.

J0E's avatar

This part of Fluther really bugs me sometimes, why is it such a bad thing to keep commenting on this question? It’s just a fun little game, get over it.

XOIIO's avatar

@kawatagrey WTF?!? How?

YARNLADY's avatar

Did you know that the advertisers send money to the World Food Organization when we simply click on the hungersite once a day?

word?

Sampson's avatar

The lead singer of Kajagoogoo’s name was Labonn

KatawaGrey's avatar

@XOIIO: Well, it was once thought that women couldn’t experience sexual pleasure, so when they were sexually frustrated, it was called hysteria and they would go to a doctor. The doctors would massage the clitoris until orgasm was reached. Well, doctors would get tired fingers so someone invented the vibrator to give them a rest. It wasn’t until relatively recently the 1970’s, I believe, but don’t quote me on it that vibrators were considered sex toys when they started appearing in pornography.

Sampson's avatar

Cheese is delicious.

XOIIO's avatar

@katawagrey BWAHAHAHALOL!!

YARNLADY's avatar

Do not go to this site to help end world hunger (not the hungersite a different one) because it might be addictive. If you ignore me, I can guarantee you will NEVER have the last word.

Well I think we have all shown the OP that people want to have the last word

No, I’m not trying to get the last word with this answer.

YAY! I have it now :)

Ha! How funny :-)

J0E's avatar

@XOIIO Dude, he can abandon it any time he wants by un-following it. Which is also what you should do.

Word.

XOIIO's avatar

Wait, so if you stop following your own question it gets deleted?

J0E's avatar

No, he just won’t be notified of any activity. If this question annoys you STOP FOLLOWING IT and let us have our fun.

SuperMouse's avatar

@XOIIO the only time I will be willing to abandon this thread is when I have posted the last quip and it has been locked down! Besides, I don’t want to ruin my streak of never being modded just to put some people out of their misery!

Mat74UK's avatar

@SuperMouse – Amen to that!

Sampson's avatar

@SuperMouse Yo go, rodent!

worrrrd.

SuperMouse's avatar

It is time to let me have the last word let go of this thred and move forward.

Mat74UK's avatar

NO. Not yet!

OreetCocker's avatar

@Mat74UK. I’m with you :-)

J0E's avatar

Why does everyone want to end this thread? No one is forcing you to follow it.

Mat74UK's avatar

@J0E – Well said!

Silhouette's avatar

No, like johnpowell, I too enjoy watching the guy who was on the other end of the tug of war rope fall on his butt when I let go.

YARNLADY's avatar

@J0E I want the last word, and the only way to do that is to have the questions frozen after I get the last word.

Mat74UK's avatar

@Sampson – Nice Beard!

SuperMouse's avatar

Ok I’m beings serious now. Everyone please stop posting so the mods can lock this thread down so I can have the last word because it is getting so long and taking forever to load. I’m just trying to help you all out so you don’t spend so much time in front of your computer waiting for bulky threads to load. You can show your appreciation by stopping now so I get the last word with lurve!

Mat74UK's avatar

@SuperMouse – Lurve to you!

I think Andrew, Ben, or Tim should answer this and then archive the question. =)

That wouldn’t be fair.

XOIIO's avatar

I think it’s a good idea. if we don’t every future flutherite will be trapped like we are.

SuperMouse's avatar

Listen up people, let’s not turn this in to a word association thread. This is a serious discussion about what drives people to insist on having the last word. The healthy thing to do for everyone participating would be to stop the madness now, leave this as the last post, and move on.

J0E's avatar

YOU can stop following it to ya know?

SuperMouse's avatar

@J0E yes well how can I beg others to stop and let me have the last word if I stop following?

XOIIO's avatar

@supermouse just ask a mod to push this to editing, then abandon the question.

SuperMouse's avatar

@XOIIO you are a genius! First I answer the question, then I ask for it to be pushed to editing, thereby ensuring the last word for myself!

XOIIO's avatar

Exactly! Now go ahead and do it, and this thread can finally die in peace.

J0E's avatar

Peace.

No fighting fellas, stop the madness! I did not mean this thread to start any kinds of arguments so let’s just be done, wrap it up, and stop this right here! Just to be safe and not to raise anyone’s hackles I think it is best to be done after this post. Thank you all in advance for your contributions.

@OperativeQ Um…I know you didn’t mean it to be, but I’m a little insulted. For one thing, I’m a grown women with three children and four grandchildren. I know what sex is all about. also, I’m married. I’m not having casual, unprotected sex with multiple men, which is really what condoms are for. Married people generally use longer term, sometimes permanent forms of birth control. But…nothing is 100%, as you know.

@Val123 Good for you. That guy doesn’t know what your talking about. If he doesn’t like it, then he can shut up.

@XOIIO I don’t think he meant to be insulting. It was just a comment, but it got my hackles up a little. I will forgive him. When he grovels. (JK @OperativeQ)!

Obama is coming to my school tomorrow. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

OperativeQ's avatar

That’d be a good opportunity to throw an egg at him.

J0E's avatar

[surfer dude laugh]

bob_'s avatar

Eggs are good for you.

rangerr's avatar

Mmm. Chicken babies.
And no. I like Obama.

OperativeQ's avatar

But it’d be funny.

J0E's avatar

You are hilarious!

gahahahagagaaahaa

OperativeQ's avatar

Yeah, @J0E we know who it is in your avatar.

J0E's avatar

That’s why I am channeling him!

rangerr's avatar

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha.

bob_'s avatar

You guys are funny.

YARNLADY's avatar

I love reading what everyone has to say. @bob_ Don’t be so mean
I’m going to be last, so you are just wasting your time here. I always have to have the last word, unless I’m dead.

rangerr's avatar

PSH. Just cause you could be my gramma, doesn’t mean I have to give you the last word.

bob_'s avatar

@YARNLADY I’m not mean. It’s just tough love.

Val123's avatar

Ties YarnLady all up in yarn so she can’t type….

YARNLADY's avatar

I typed for six months last year with my hands all bandaged up, so a little yarn isn’t going to stop me.

Val123's avatar

I’ll stuff feathers in your nose!!

bob_'s avatar

This is getting kinky.

Val123's avatar

Only you bob. (Have you opened a window specialy for this question,and the other, so you don’t have to wait forever for it to open?)

YARNLADY's avatar

I bought some new memory to increase my load speed.

Val123's avatar

Val123's avatar

Drag-o? Is there something I need to know about you Ivan The First?

rangerr's avatar

Well at least this one is still here.

bob_'s avatar

It was good while it lasted.

rangerr's avatar

Who died and made you Mr I decide the law?

rangerr's avatar

Hello, Joshua.

bob_'s avatar

SuperMouse's avatar

I’ve given up trying to get the last word here. Now I want this thread to go on forever!

bob_'s avatar

That’s the spirit.

rangerr's avatar

bob_'s avatar

And ever and ever.

rangerr's avatar

bob_'s avatar

And then some more.

liminal's avatar

bob_'s avatar

Maybe not that long.

Val123's avatar

Maybe forever….

rangerr's avatar

At least until today.

Val123's avatar

Longer than that. At least until next Monday, when I have a chance to post again.

bob_'s avatar

No. Not yet.

rangerr's avatar

Negatory, Doc.

bob_'s avatar

Prognosis: negative.

SuperMouse's avatar

To infinity and beyond… that is my goal for this question.

bob_'s avatar

It ain’t gonna happen, dude.

liminal's avatar

We may never know.

bob_'s avatar

I’m pretty sure we will.

bob_'s avatar

Oh, no. Not that again.

rangerr's avatar

hnnnnnnnnnnng

bob_'s avatar

Pfft. Kids these days.

bob_'s avatar

Tequila!

YARNLADY's avatar

Does it count when it’s the same two or three people, over and over?

bob_'s avatar

@rangerr! I thought we had agreed to keep it private.

Dr_C's avatar

As long as there’s a word it counts yes?

bob_'s avatar

Theoretically.

rangerr's avatar

@bob_ Whoa, buddy.

bob_'s avatar

@rangerr You’re welcome.

rangerr's avatar

I thought it was a secret?

bob_'s avatar

Um, yeah, I’m talking about… um… the other thing… yep, that’s the ticket.

kenmc's avatar

No, @bob_ that is not the ticket.

bob_'s avatar

That’s not what she said.

rangerr's avatar

I have the golden ticket. Sorry, boys.

bob_'s avatar

I’ll sneak in before you. pwned.

rangerr's avatar

I’ll stab you.
Brb. naptime.

bob_'s avatar

D:

I’ll take pictures of you in your sleep and sell them to Japanese businessmen.

rangerr's avatar

Well, that’s… odd.

Dr_C's avatar

is it?... is it?

rangerr's avatar

It’s like your face, Doc.

bob_'s avatar

pwned.

Mat74UK's avatar

Just showing my face to see who’s still here!

bob_'s avatar

Well, howdy.

rangerr's avatar

Hello, there.

bob_'s avatar

What up, yo?

kenmc's avatar

The sky.

bob_'s avatar

Are you outdoors?

bob_'s avatar

I’m indoors.

rangerr's avatar

I am too!
I came inside because it was too hot.

bob_'s avatar

I hear you. Stupid global warming.

rangerr's avatar

Mother Nature is being a jerkface right now.

bob_'s avatar

Well, she ain’t being the sweet motherly type, that’s for sure.

rangerr's avatar

Who are you and what do you do with your life?
You are always here.

bob_'s avatar

I’m at work, and I am a fast typer.

You, on the other hand, are going down.

rangerr's avatar

GO PRODUCTIVITY.

bob_'s avatar

What do you do with your life?

rangerr's avatar

I tend to rabbits.
I feed calves, goats and sheep.
I ride horses.
I play video games and watch Star Wars.
And go to class.

bob_'s avatar

Well, aren’t you active.

bob_'s avatar

Good for you.

rangerr's avatar

Good for me!

bob_'s avatar

Yay!

So can you make me a sandwich?

bob_'s avatar

Double yay!

Easy on the lettuce.

kenmc's avatar

I dont just want a sandwich, I deserve one.

bob_'s avatar

Dibs on the first one.

liminal's avatar

Get in line.

bob_'s avatar

You get in line.

rangerr's avatar

Now, now, ladies…

bob_'s avatar

But they started it!

Val123's avatar

Hey…what happened to rangerr, you guys? When you click on her av it goes to that goofy dude that says they can’t find that user…..

bob_'s avatar

Dude. Guess she must have quit.

Val123's avatar

Bummer.

bob_'s avatar

Indeed.

Val123's avatar

True dat.

liminal's avatar

I am surprised.

I hope it isn’t because she thought we wouldn’t give her the last word.

bob_'s avatar

I hope so, too.

Val123's avatar

Hopefully she’s on facebook somewhere.

Hold on. I’M GIVING her the last word. Here Rangerr. “Last Word.” Don’t say I never gave you nothin’.

bob_'s avatar

Um, okay.

* pats Val’s head *

Val123's avatar

Ew! I don’t know where that hand has been! Don’t touch me!

Val123's avatar

Dman it! I smell cat crap!

bob_'s avatar

It ain’t me. I just washed them.

Val123's avatar

Pewt! (also WORD!!!, since “pwet” isn’t a word.)

bob_'s avatar

Good girl. Now go make me a sandwich.

Mat74UK's avatar

Cheese and Pickle?

SuperMouse's avatar

@rangerr sent me in her stead.

bob_'s avatar

Pastrami.

Mat74UK's avatar

I settled for cheese, pickled beetroot and salad cream!

bob_'s avatar

Nice. Now go make me a pastrami sandwich.

Mat74UK's avatar

Ain’t got any.
Will spam do?

bob_'s avatar

No. Go buy some.

Mat74UK's avatar

It’s Sunday, it’s gone 4pm everywhere is closed apart from the pub I’m going down there. Make your own sandwich!

bob_'s avatar

Pfft. You can’t find good help these days.

Mat74UK's avatar

You didn’t pay enough anyway!

bob_'s avatar

Lesson learned.

bob_'s avatar

¿Qué?

rangerr's avatar

Temporarily back.

bob_'s avatar

Yay!

Welcome back XD

Val123's avatar

@rangerr WHERE’D YOU GO!!!

rangerr's avatar

On a break.
Too much nonsense on here.

bob_'s avatar

It’s a crazy world.

Val123's avatar

No bob. The world is sane. You’re crazy. See.

bob_'s avatar

Hey, where’s my sandwich?

kenmc's avatar

I will win.

kenmc's avatar

Hey @bob_ I won the wis.dm one, and I will win this one.

bob_'s avatar

Nobody cares.

kenmc's avatar

Then why keep responding?

bob_'s avatar

I meant about you winning on wis.dm.

Now go make me a sandwich.

kenmc's avatar

I’m not a woman, so no.~

bob_'s avatar

Touché.

I’m going to sleep. I’ll have the last word after I wake up.

rangerr's avatar

I feel like this is going in circles.

bob_'s avatar

Potato, potatoe.

liminal's avatar

Tomato, tomatoe, now i really want a sandwich.

bob_'s avatar

Go make two. One for me, the other one also for me, but for later.

Mat74UK's avatar

@bob_ are you stil hungry?

bob_'s avatar

I have room for some pie.

Val123's avatar

@boots—YOU DID NOT WIN THE WISDM ONE!! I did.
@mat74UK I’m still hungry

bob_'s avatar

@Val123 Go make me an omelette.

Val123's avatar

@bob_ Shut up. (* Ties Bob up and gags him. * YOU’RE OUT!!!)

rangerr's avatar

Ties and gags? Whoa, Val.

bob_'s avatar

Whoa, indeed. Kinky.

kenmc's avatar

@Val123 Yes, I did.

This is an amusing question.

bob_'s avatar

You are amusing.

kenmc's avatar

No, I’m boots.

bob_'s avatar

Amusing boots.

bob_'s avatar

Very amusing indeed.

Mat74UK's avatar

yawn you all still here?

bob_'s avatar

Um, yes.

Mat74UK's avatar

@bob_ – I knew you would be! Take a break and go get something to eat! I’ll look after this thread!

bob_'s avatar

@Mat74UK Nah, I’m cool, thanks.

SuperMouse's avatar

Is this thread still alive? >>yawn<<

bob_'s avatar

It is.

* accidently drops drink on @rangerr *

rangerr's avatar

I’m sorry, I don’t like males.

bob_'s avatar

Aw, man!

So it doesn’t work

Mat74UK's avatar

Checking in!

bob_'s avatar

Oh, hai. You can go now.

rangerr's avatar

Checking you out.

bob_'s avatar

How you doin’?

rangerr's avatar

Hay gurl.

bob_'s avatar

Um, wrong.

Val123's avatar

Um. Right.

rangerr's avatar

Possibly.

rangerr's avatar

I doubt it.

Val123's avatar

You guys don’t know!!!

liminal's avatar

What do you know???

bob_'s avatar

I know everything.

Mat74UK's avatar

@bob_ – What am I having for dinner?

bob_'s avatar

@Mat74UK Make me 2 sandwiches. You can have half of one.

Mat74UK's avatar

@bob_ – You and your bloody sandwiches!

Mat74UK's avatar

Not literally blood!
It’s an expression!

bob_'s avatar

I know.

Val123's avatar

I know lots of expressions. “Make hay while the sun shines,” is one.

bob_'s avatar

That’s a real Algonquin Round Table you grew up with.

Val123's avatar

I’m not a Indian. Indian saying: “Your conscience is like a square, flat rock sitting in the middle of your chest. Everytime you lie, or doe something wrong on purpose, the rock turns and you can feel the poking of the corners when it turns. But if you ignore that poking, and keep lying, eventually the corners round off, and the rock becomes round. Then you can’t feel the poke any more when it turns.” And that is not a good thing, Bob!

bob_'s avatar

Every time you refuse to make me a sandwich, God kills a kitten.

Val123's avatar

He does?

bob_'s avatar

Yep. So you better get some pastrami, pronto.

Val123's avatar

Well, I have two kittens now so as long as nothing happens to THEM I’m fine. Get your own damn sandwich! Famous saying, “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!”

bob_'s avatar

FINE! Hope you can live with that big rock poking you.

Val123's avatar

What rock.

bob_'s avatar

Hmpf. Nevermind.

liminal's avatar

psst, it’s the round one.

Ivan's avatar

Oh god, it’s still only round one? I hope someone gets knocked out soon.

bob_'s avatar

Round one? More like warm-up.

Mat74UK's avatar

“Seconds out”

kenmc's avatar

This is boring. You people are boring.

bob_'s avatar

@boots You bore me more than reading the yellow pages.

Mat74UK's avatar

@boots – Bore off!

bob_'s avatar

Now I’m sleepy.

rangerr's avatar

You’re all boring. But I ♥ you regardless.

YARNLADY's avatar

@rangerr Hey there – I heard you left us. Welcome back.

Val123's avatar

@boots Hm. Your name is “boots’ and WE’RE boring? Hump. You forgot to mention we’re boring AND slow.

bob_'s avatar

I’m back from my business trip. Did y’all miss me here?

Val123's avatar

No. Yes. Where did you go? How can you go someplace and not tell me????? Did you go to Amarilla?????

bob_'s avatar

I was in Mexico City. It was a quick trip.

liminal's avatar

@Val123 Where did who go? ;)

bob_'s avatar

@liminal Where did you go?

YARNLADY's avatar

Welcome back @bob_ I didn’t notice you were gone.

Val123's avatar

YOU @liminal

No no @YARNLADY! Don’t you be jumpin’ in on my post! Too late! O well. I have the last word now!

YARNLADY's avatar

@Val123 Exactly what I was thinking – I almost backed off for a minute there.

Val123's avatar

Hey!!!! Not fair!!!

bob_'s avatar

Can’t believe it’s Wednesday. It feels like a Friday.

YARNLADY's avatar

@bob_ Jet Lag? If it was Friday, my grandson would be coming over, I haven’t fully recovered from last weekend yet, I really the rest of the week.

Val123's avatar

STORMS MOVING IN!! THEY HAVE THE LAST WORD!! I HAVE TO SHUT IT DOWN FOR A WHILE!! BYE!!!

bob_'s avatar

Nah. Can’t be jetlag. Didn’t change time zones.

rangerr's avatar

Drug use?

bob_'s avatar

No way, José.

* innocent look *

rangerr's avatar

Luckily, I’m not José..

bob_'s avatar

Pics or it never happened.

rangerr's avatar

Avatar, bro.

bob_'s avatar

Can’t see your face, sis.

Val123's avatar

Well, that’s because I’m not here! Doy!

rangerr's avatar

No, but I am.

bob_'s avatar

Me too. Greetings from Austin, y’all.

Mat74UK's avatar

bob_'s avatar

Never been.

Val123's avatar

Greetings from Kansas.

bob_'s avatar

rangerr's avatar

bob_'s avatar

rangerr's avatar

Well, you’re in Mexico.

Mat74UK's avatar

England 3 – Mexico 1

bob_'s avatar

@rangerr Precisely.

@Mat74UK Congratulations on winning a match that doesn’t count. Pity that England won’t win the World Cup.

kenmc's avatar

bob_'s avatar

rangerr's avatar

bob_'s avatar
