Depends who it was. Edit: Congratulations. I'm assuming you'll be living in Portland while your spousal equivalent tests their skills on the mean streets of Los Angeles?

Yeah, I'm jealous...how did they find the exact same ring I gave you? It was supposed to be a secret. This is just great, I spend a night in a mythical hospital and you go two-timing me before the virtual body even goes cold!

Shouldn't this be in foo? Or at least post it in A&S. I thought the big stink was that this was to be a board for talking about VC?

[edit]

Man I keep forgetting it is April Fools Day. Nevermind me, carry on

Well, I'll tell you derath. It is really hard to ride VC with such a massive ROCK on my finger. I mean, if I signal, it blinds the drivers behind me and then they run into me. So I have to ride in the bike lane. Fortunately, the glare off it prevents people from inadvertant drift into me.

But today as I was riding with my betrothed, I wiped the sweat from my brow, cut my eyebrow on that sucker, fell into the broken glass in the bike lane, then was right-hooked as I lay bleeding surrounded by killer pine cones. I tried to give a steely-eyed glare, but the blood got in my eye.

Chip! I'm glad those glass balz of yours ain't busted. That'd put a damper on your riding, that's for sure.

Except from Milagro Beanfield War:

"Don't leave your shoes over on the floor, there. Scorpions. And when you use the outhouse, don't let your testicles swing up under the wood: Black Widows."

Ah Diane, I thought you had me ignored all this time. I know I have said some mean things in the past, and I figured my apologies fell on deaf ears. Had I known I would have proposed long before this other guy...

Nah, honestly just tired and grumpy. My daughter turns 4 in 2 weeks and the way she has been getting up at night, I am praying she lives to see it.

A couple of weeks?

That's what they said about the Civil War.

And the First World War...

And Stalingrad...

Better pack your winter clothes!
