      Lori. But only because she could teach me how to play the harpsichord.

      Nobody says I'm compassionate.

      People say I'm fixated on badgering Dan Riffle. But he's badgering me! He shows up in my nightmares. His image shows up in my burnt toast. Clouds form to look like him. Chubby ugly clouds. His pictures, and crude drawings of him are plastered all over my house.

      I made my wife wear a Riffle mask before we had sex.....and then I realized that Riffle makes an unattractive woman. I make her fix me Riffle shaped pancakes for breakfast. It's pretty easy, because pancakes are shaped like him normally.

      I filed for a restraining order, and then waited to deliver it....all night...outside his house....

      That darn Riffle just won't leave me alone...no matter how many times he moves to get away from me.

      Prancer is my name.

      People say that I'm a condescending, patronizing, pompous, know it all with delusions of grandeur. There's no punch line.

      Ken; If you're being serious, join the club. Unfortunately, many people don't like sarcasm. Me? I think it's a high art form.

      So I have practically rid myself of it. It took a few decades. When I'm tired, sometimes it still slips out. My wife told me in no uncertain terms that it made people dislike me, and I hurt their feelings. It sure made me put some effort into changing.

      The exchanges with Riffle are as close as I get. But I make absolutely sure that the person understands where I'm coming from. If I ever had a hint that I was hurting Riffles feelings, I would stop in a minute.

      I exchange these barbs with a few close friends, never acquaintances. Never women. Never children. Never customers.

      Only with intelligent friends that give as good as they get.

          People say I'm verbose, but they don't know what they're talking about because I never use more words than are necessary. Especially when I'm trying to be concise, like now. I really don't know where people get the idea from that I'm verbose. Verbose - ha! Where do these people get off saying that about me? It's not like I just keep going on and on and on and on and on. And on. Oh, and one more thing, if you're still reading this post then you may have missed the point. :rolleyes:

      So people say you use long words, but you find having an overly complex style slightly pompous at best, and melodramatic at worst.

      I, however, think that you just love being tolutiloquent while I prefer being suaviloquent.

        People say that I talk too much but...

        I don't think that I do at all. It's just that when I have something to say, I want each and everyone within earshot to completely understand what I am wanting to convey to them. I want them to be able to experience what I did with each and every sense available, so therefore I have to set the scene with everything leading up to the event, what it looked like, what it felt like, what the odors or aromas were comparable to. Then I begin the process of verbally walking them through the experience step by step explaining any changes in any of the above mentioned senses because I want them to have a very accurate and vivid mind picture of what exactly was going on. I don't think that is talking too much, I just believe that I am being very thorough and it is a more of a matter of being detail minded rather than talking too much. Wouldn't you agree?
