    i have sometimes imagined meeting some of you and the resulting conversational gambits that might ensue.

    Most of them seem incredibly horrible and awkward because I only know about the weird stuff people talk about on here and not the humdrum of everyday life.

    For example, I can't imagine an encounter with Milky Discharge really following established North American conversational parameters for very long.
    But it would be fun.

    I'm sure many here would like me to do the same with my typing fingers.

    That would be acceptable to me. Even preferable.

    I was thinking how glad I am the other day that I have people here to share my thoughts and feelings with. I just think you're all great. You know, someone should make a thread where we all list our favorite posters here. I don't want to do it because I'm shy but I'm sure someone will take those reins, ha ha!

    I would not know what to say to anyone 20 seconds after meeting them. "How about that Stew Nod? Isn't he getting out of control?"

    @jdwhatever and I talked on the phone a couple times. It was easy conversation. And I was on a party line type call with @Capn Crud and @Splash once. Again, easy conversation.

    Probably helped that we were all drunk.

    I like the idiots who meet up and claim to not talk about anyone here on the board because their lives are so full.

    You ALWAYS talk about the board when you meet people you've posted with - it's your common ground, FFS. The test of whether you're going to be friends with someone comes when the board talk runs out. Sometimes it works out, sometimes not. :dontknow:

    I think I asked someone here if they talked about me when they met up and they got all upset. They said, "We don't need to talk about you!" Maybe they talked about other people. I just like bothering everyone.
