    Use of the English language allows for for very precise exchanges, however, sometimes friends choose the wrong word. In this case, a friend did, and I pounced on it.
    "HeyRick are you gonna harvest this honey for us next year?"....Yes, I will....".Do you have a costume you wear?"....The trap closes----Why ,yes I do...It is a Blackbeard the Bee Pirate costume. I dress up and hang a rope, and with an "AAarrggg!!!", I swing up on top of the hive and start hacking away with my cutlass..."..You're kidding me?"........You bet I am. I'd be Bumpbeard if I did that...."Rick, you're dog droppings!!!" :lol: :lol: :lol:
    Now he knows never to take me seriously. :thumbsup:

    Re: Semantics

    I love words!

    I used to work for a company that made rubber vibration isolators. We constantly had to keep a straight face when valued clients talked about "dampening" (to make moist) their equipment, instead of "damping" (reducing the motion of vibration).
