@dalehileman,
That would depend on whether or not reclamation efforts were made.

@dalehileman,
hmmm, not sure it's any fun if i have to explain it

i ask a ridiculous question about another word for thesaurus,and osso replies with an allusion to the old classic conundrum "what word rhymes with orange"

@dalehileman,
Little usage hint, dale: if you see that a post which is not quite comprehensible to you is addressed to, say, ossobuco, just click on "ossobuco" at the start of the post you don't get. It will automatically take you back to the post being replied to, without having to go searching for it. (To get back to where you started, just click the "back" arrow.)

@dalehileman,
I am probably more aimed to alzheimers than you are. Numerous people in my family have had it ahead of me, sort of destiny.

I wish you would ******* stop using that as cute, you poor ******* thing.

@dalehileman,
I get you are struggling. But I figure you are struggling with what has probably been a lifetime of nitpicking, and now are blaming it on potential Alzheimer's.

@dalehileman,
Have you known anyone with alzheimer's?

my mother had it for ten years. Of her aunts, they all were sent to Metropolitan.

Your fear is not cute, which you seem to continue to think.
