Somebody is taking bobcat with me... ;)
Girl you are crazy. You just made spray my soda everywhere.
I'm glad I could make you smile for a change...
Hey bobcat!! Umbrage is a good word, it does roll off the tongue...I read a study that some linguists did in the nineties.They asked a group of people that didn't speak english what THEY thought was the prettiest word in the english language was. The winner?? Diarrhea. No kidding.
Well, at least youre spraying SODA....
Or spraying anywhere...
And, while I've got your attention bobcat, your jokes always make me smile. Always.
Lmao told you i was getting frustrated with cnn! And they HAD been my #l choice for news for several years but over the past few months theyve takin a serious nosedive. And please bobcat, the rest of us appreciate your humor! Keep em comming!
As long as I can hock a furball, I'll keep spitting them out.
You certainly paint a vivid portrait with words....yuck!
How about just telling them? Lol.....
Sorry for the graphic nature of that attempt at humor. My brain is getting tired and i'm losing my edge.
I was just kidding, Rawr.
It fit perfectly with the rest of our conversation.
Good Evening All, dare I ask if the trolls are finished with their nonsense.
As long as you're not the troll of dazzle, I'd say yes.
What bobcat said.
No this is the real dazzle @bobcat (iah), my baby is home and 3 of her friends are here. So I had to take Elmo out of her room for now. I didn't expect to have 4 teenagers here tonight.
Sorry for doubting you, but one can not be too careful nowadays. I know you are totally beside yourself having your baby home. Did you mention that today was her B-day ?
Save that treat for later, lol....you wouldn't want to offend their delicate sensibilities.
Pool party @ dazzle ©'s!!
@bobcat(iah), @banasy, and @chrissy, no her birthday is next weekend. I know how we can't be too careful. @banasy, come on over, these teens are already carrying on.
They deleted chrissy's post where she complained about her troll.
So your answer to her got bumped.
I'm of to hit the sheets.
It's my grandaughter debut as baby Wendy in the dance production of Peter Pan that my older daughter dances in also.
My older daughter plays Shmee.
She's a riot every year! So, so funny.
Good night, all!
Good Night @banasy and have a great time at the play.
Nope it didnt get deleted, but the awaiting moderation did! Yay! HELLO TORI, we have missed you girl!
Oh my God! We'd all better go jump off a cliff!
Happy earth day!
