I love detail, and I'm tidy to the point of a fan and avail myself.

Mmm sordid.

@glitterbag,
Indeed.

Did I already mention 'the proverbial whatever'? Are there really proverbs about all that stuff?

@glitterbag,
As a career in Accounting, we see most things in black and white, and we rarely can see any grays. My sense of humor, I'm afraid, is lacking big time.

No. It's usually my inability to see humor in humorous stories posted on a2k and Facebook. Don't get me wrong, I've always enjoyed almost all of the comedians.
