    @cat0703a, you know you can feel free to tell me to "take a hike", right?

    Isn't it the case that the better you know someone, the less likely you are to misunderstand their intent? Don't I recall an email I sent at work being taken as an insult by one person when in fact I was admonishing a second person for doing a task rather than showing the first person how to do it? 🤷‍♂️

    Why do you think the saying is, “take a hike” and not “go for a run”? 🤔

    Is it because "go for a run" has a positive connotation while "take a hike" has a negative connotation? Or does "take a hike" have a negative connotation because of the way we use it?

    Can we start a new one? How about “Do a 30 min HIIT workout”?

    How about take a trip?

    do you do the silly thing when someone stumbles and say Have a nice trip, see you next fall?

    Depending on the company, wouldn't "take a HIIT" spark some confusion?

    You do know I live in Colorado, right? Wouldn't my son have a VERY different interpretation than I would when told the same thing?

    And I suppose there are several ways to interpret "Rocky Mountain High" as well? 😂

    Not sure, do you know the secret ingredients?

    If I tell you the secret, will it still be secret anymore?

    Did everyone take a break from the thread for the holidays or did they get sick like me?

    I was sick before Thanksgiving, can I pass on anything else this year?

    Were you back to 100% in time to enjoy Thanksgiving?
  • nossmf
    nossmf Posts: 8,385 Member
    Maybe not 100%, since I settled for one plate of food instead of three, but aren't I lucky I fell ill on the Monday before, instead of waiting for Tuesday or later?

    Are you feeling better?
    A Break? From MFP, sure, wasn't I gone for a couple months? Won't I be gone again soon for another month?

    Are you taking a break from the internet as a whole, or just MFP?
