    I find language fascinating. The way we learn to string words together to express our thoughts is very much the same as we string tools and operations together to bring an idea into reality. As listeners, we often receive the message incorrectly.

    This is an example of how often words can easily send a message the speaker did not intend. Taken in context, it is clear that you love traveling and seeing all that America has to offer.

    This exact string of words can also express the opposite sentiment. For example, "Since I have retired, I am continuing to not miss some of the idiots I worked with"

    I live in hope of that day (hope springs eternal, and costs bugger all), until then I will continue to refer to myself as a gynaecologist and proctologist, as some of those I have to endure are either C***'s or Arseholes, sometimes both!

    I see this and I can imagine Lucy ( from I love Lucy show ) standing in the line and stuffing the extras into her mouth like she did on one of her shows...I think in that particular show, it was candy she was stuffing her mouth with. She was such a nut, and always very funny; just like Grace Burns; George Burns's wife.
