Of course you were and so was I. BTW-- I appreciate your use of the word
"ladies", especially given some of my unladylike comments. And for the record... I have already been as graphic as I will ever be in mixed company. I am mortified that I gave the impression there might be more to come.
Just kidding. I know that whatever I put out there can be misconstrued and it is up to me to rectify it.
To me, all women are ladies unless proven otherwise. There have been extreme exceptions where I have been pushed beyond the bounds of common courtesy toward women - the Wicked Witch of Rosemont is a good example - but generally, I maintain gentlemanly behavior. Mama raised me right.
