    Well said. Although I'd say it's a chowder we are in and not a soup.

    But I'm not seeing a problem, nor by the looks of things is anyone else. The "problem" is in your head. ~ dg

    Actually it was "boring" I meant. I'm not feeling bored at all, I'm feeling the urge to annoy people by boring them. 😀
    lol....ok...I stand corrected!!! 😉

    Shouldn't that be "I am standing corrected"? 😠

    OK, then. Wycombe Al posted twice on just this thread alone in the space of 56 minutes. That's 1 post every 28 minutes for that sampled period of time. And it doesn't factor in his posting on other threads. Use these statistics as you see fit.

    I've always said: "I stand corrected", when I happen to be wrong about something.

    In this case though I was sitting when I typed it, so perhaps standing corrected would be wrong also. 😉

    Ah yes, but how often are you happening to be wrong about something? 😉

    We had a childhood saying in our family "I sit down corrected" because we were so rarely standing when we said it. Whenever I see or hear "I stand corrected" I automatically restate it in my head.

    Anyone else have a similar mental process about a catchphrase?

    We used to say "Get out of the light" if someone obstructed our view of the TV screen. Is that common or normal?

    Our version of that was "you're not transparent". Hmmm, seems we made a habit of it.
