@BiB60 I was always told "proper" English is the hardest language to learn with so many rules and regulations!!H*ll I know being born and raised here in U.S. and brought up speaking English to this day I still don't speak it "properly"!! When I was in school years ago English was always a hard subject I always thought to myself "I am speaking and you understanding what I'm saying so why do I have to speak following these rules and regulations" !!! As OZZY says @ the end of "Crazy Train" "it's a bitch" :) LOL
@ILF - Thanks, spoken from painful trial-and-error experience! And yes, I do 'know' the difference between 'no' and 'know' but blew it in that post, and didn't see it until just now, too late to edit. Discount English degree; you get what you pay for.
@ILF - There is *no* correct answer to that question. Pretend you didn't hear it and/or change the subject, then run away. If you're brave or trapped in the room, about the best you can do is, "You always look wonderful!" with no dangerous qualifiers like "...to me" which can open a new can of worms. You sure don't want to say, "I love you know matter what!" Nooooo. Yours will get stuff like, "Are you sure?" or "You're *lying* to me, dammit!" or "Whaddya mean, in *those* jeans? Do I look FAT to you other times?!?!" It's a conundrum, a Gordian knot, and a no-win scenario. Easier to look at 'em here at a safe distance!
