    Shouldn't we step it up a bit to make up for last year?

    Wouldn't you rather jump out from behind a tree and scare the little monsters darlings?
    Would you believe one Halloween, years ago, I put my speakers facing out some windows and played this song "Lip Service", from Il Gruppo's album Private Sea of Dreams, repeatedly, which certainly added a creepy/scary element for the little tikes? 😂
    (It gets creepier and creepier, doesn't it?)

    Should I do that again this year?

    Wouldn’t that be a good one to listen to while out walking on the forested pathway near my house in order to get my feet moving a little quicker? 😱

    Wouldn't that get your feet moving quicker and you heart beating faster as well? 😂

    Didn’t it remind me of the zombie running app that I once purchased thinking it would help me learn to love running? 😅

    Aren't I a little surprised by how vehement your response appears? And is that what those little icons were? Is the fault for not identifying those icons due to my screen or my old eyes?

    @nossmf , do you realize your questions serve a dual purpose as they both propel this thread forward and often contain a “word of the day” that helps me expand my vocabulary?

    So now is the pressure on to continue intellectualizing this thread? Or would you prefer a more apropos word more applicable to everyday conversation? Would you believe my wife hates it when I occasionally begin utilizing the breadth and depth of my vocabulary when I'm around her?

    How could we possibly go wrong with intellectualizing this thread?!

    If I pressure everyone else, will that lessen the pressure for you as an individual, @nossmf ?

    Doesn't pressure turn loosely compacted carbon molecules into a rigidly defined structure?

    Oh, you mean like graphene, or maybe "ice nine"? 😉😂

    Do I have a secret hater choosing to disagree with all of my posts in this thread? (Or at least each of the last three?)

    Are you pulling my leg? 🤔
    Doesn't it seem that you are unaware I fully understood you were talking about diamonds, and that I was not disagreeing, but rather doing what I often do, which is to inject humor into the conversation?
    Haven't I quite recently been accused of telling a "dad joke"?
    (Do you think I think the person who accused me of that is a secret hater of mine?) 🤔
    (Didn't I just edit my previous post to make it more obvious I was joking?)
    (@srazamora, is humor in the form of a question allowed here?) 😂

    @frankwbrown, that wasn't me accusing you of dad jokes, was it? (Didn't I just jump in and suggest you were prolific? 😜) You know I'm your biggest fan and not a hater, don't you? Aren't I getting ready to order a ristretto latte for Brian? Is fun allowed here?

    Maybe the disagreer doesn’t wish to learn new words? My word of the day “paraprosdokian” is fitting for some of us here, isn’t it?

    In a similar vein, does it bother anybody else when somebody refers to something as "very unique?" Since the definition of unique means singular, none exactly like it, then isn't "very unique" the same as saying "very one?"

    Isn't that a very unique interesting observation you've made there?

    @nossmf
    Don't I fail to see how my response above was disagreeing with you?
    Can you not see that I agree, and find it an interesting observation, which is what I said?
    Doesn't it appear to me that some people get my humor, and others are apparently annoyed by it?

    @frankwbrown, Isn’t he referring to someone actually hitting the disagree reaction and not your witty dad jokes? 😉

    Don't I apologize for thinking you were talking about me, if in fact you weren't?
    Don't I now see that someone was clicking their disagree button on your posts and some others?
    Isn't that a cowardly thing to do, anonymous drive-by disagreements?

    “paraprosdoikan”? How do you spell that? 😂
    (wasn't that going to be a good dad joke, until I looked up that word (had to) and found it's misspelled, so now it's just pointing out your misspelling?) 🙄

    A "good dad joke"? Does such a thing exist?
