I don't know whether to laugh at that or shake my head disapprovingly.

You may shake your head disapprovingly if you like. I won't be offended. I was thinking of Sophi's team specifically, but that probably makes no difference. Disabilities do make games a little more challenging and that is not a joke.

Leave it to us Americans to take pride in our tasteless and politically incorrect humor. Hence, the popularity of redneck icon Larry the Cable Guy.

The song was bad. I don't even think I was making a joke earlier, just a dumb comment about a field full of one-legged athletes.

You could have paid her. Told her you'd write a paper for her or offered pleasant favors to be provided in discretion.

Considering that's the only picture I've seen, I'm still convinced she's a department store mannequin.

No, I don't. Or, at least I didn't. I don't generally snoop around, even though it's public.

I wasn't asking. I never look at mine, so I never offer, never ask. This forum has taken over any time I spent there. The fb's like a stagnant pond. I respond only to messages or requests there.

He's cut back a little on his time here, but with curfews and adequate rest for a growing boy, he's limited on the time he's allowed to spend with her.

Actually, that's not it... she does the IB (international baccalaureate, you may have heard of it...) and she has almost no free time. She has so much work she has to pull at least two all-nighters a week

It was much more fun the way I put it. I've never heard of the IB, but I remember academic demands and living on 4 hours of sleep for months on end.

ha, she thinks she's lucky to get four hours a night... it's such a sadistic course, all the students get about ten to fifteen thousand words a week in essays...

Sounds very demanding. Too much of that will wear your body down. I ended up with mononucleosis and ran a low grade fever for two months. It only made it harder, but I couldn't rest because I had stuff to do. I went to school year round for 4 years and graduated with honors. I look back now and don't know how I managed it.

How did you manage? I'm working 6 days a week and ready to pull my hair out. I hate opening month.
