@Lordyaswas,
Instead of his usual glib response, Lordy is obviously doing careful research to refute Contrexthethief and IzzytheLiar.

@Nannasusu,
My mother-in-law, Barbara (Merritt's mom), gave me this set of pots and pans. Maybe? That is a very tricky sentence to punctuate! How about... Merritt (my husband)'s mom, Barbara, gave me this set of pots and pans. I don't know if you can put apostrophe-s after parentheses, though.

@dalehileman,
You have five. I have two maybe three.

Want to get married and make the best of it? Just for the heck of it. In all seriousness.
