So here's a two-fold attempt to close the circle on a couple of items…
I put up three examples, two of which actually happened, (I made up the one about not locking the car)…
The one posted by jw stuck out the most, partly because it also happened…
jw: …."the kind of wiser you get when the new girlfriend borrows the credit card."
I hope we're not talking about the same girlfriend here. When it happened to me, she used it to open a line of credit at the Bellagio, and I'm still getting phone calls from those people 15 years later.
So I owe jw some cookies, and Anonymiss assures me she's on it….
The other fold is this: come up with an adjective that tops "poltroon" in reference to our would-be king, and use it in a sentence. The winner will get his choice of:
A. Cookies from Anonymiss:
|"Stingy Brim Turbo 2000"|
|The "Liza Doolittle"|
|The "Beelzebub Boater"|
|The "Sir Francis"|
