I'd continue to argue the point, but I think my efforts would be vain.

Chestnut Tree (the Honesty) -- of unusual stature(are you calling me fat?), impressive (well, if you really insist on calling me so...), well-developed sense of justice (I'm not sure that well-developed would be quite the right word for it. questionable might be more appropriate) , fun to be around (I'm so much fun to be around that I hang out with myself more than anybody else), a planner (psshaww), born diplomat (when I want to be), can be irritated easily (dammit, I told you that I don't get angry easily), sensitive of others feelings (most of the time; now whether or not I choose to act on that is another matter), hard worker (again, when I want to be), sometimes acts superior (only sometimes?), feels not understood at times (I am understood by those who are not understood by others), fiercely family oriented (I guess you could say that)), very loyal in love (most definitely), physically fit (again with the fat jokes!!).

No, not out of ammo. Any further debate would just be about semantics, debating the meaning of a word.

And I have plenty of good debate stuff.

Well, one topic of debate that has been coming up frequently lately has been the best type of women's underwear. I personally am in favor of the lace, butt-hugging, womens-boxer things known as tangas. Others think thongs, and still others prefer bikini briefs. What about you?

(and every time I've had this discussion, it's been with another woman)
