But I think he was drinking coffee at the time. He wanted more milk in it. Context, always context.

Slight aside: The comedian Steve Wright said: "I wish the first word I'd learned to say was 'quote' so that before I died I could say 'unquote'."

@VideCorSpoon,
Quote:

Here is one of my current favorites. Thomas De Mahay, the Marquis of Favras was among the many nobility who tried to Help Louis XVI escape after he was captured by the French revolutionaries in 1790. He was subsequently convicted of treason and sentenced to be hanged. On his way to the gallows, the court clerk handed him his official death sentence. He turned to the court clerk and uttered, "I see you have made three spelling mistakes." Awesome. Just awesome.

Thomas De Mahay... French Aristocrat, Royalist, and dyed-in-the-wool bad-ass. I salute thee sir... I salute thee.


Bad-ass is right.

Awesome. AWESOME.

I'd like to have lived my life backwards and my last words would have been, "Goo goo", or words to that effect.

@housby,
"What? Men dodging this way for single bullets? What will you do when they open fire along the whole line? I'm ashamed of you, dodging that way. They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance."
John Sedgwick's last words seconds before being shot below the left eye by a Confederate sniper 1000 yards away.

Just to correct your quote :b
