I do not have the female equivilent of erectile disfunction, and the line "is that a fuckin' problem?" is from Brokeback Mountain. It follows the much more controversial one "You been to Mexico, Jack Twist? Huh? Cause I hear what they've  got in Mexico for boys like you." "Hell yes, I've been to mexico. is that a fuckin' problem?"

I have been speaking English, and even German, long enough not to blame my parents for the way I speak it.

Anyone who thinks I go along with the crowd hasn't read many of my posts. And CERTAINLY hasn't read my only published story on fanfiction so far--the second awaits the fate of two guys in a dark rose house, which my peer reader is inextricably tied up with at the moment...

julie01, after I posted a response to your message, I looked at your BetterMost Profile.

I did not know that you were so much older than me.

The 16 year old "guy" actually has a woman's name "ednakrabapley" in his email address. I have never met a guy named "Edna" (that's my older sister's name); but, I have had friends whose first names were Sherrill, Shirley and Sharon.

Sherrill's last name was "Booker' and he prefered to be called by his last name. Shirley's Middle name was "Rogers;" he had been named after a male Cherokee relative "Shirley Rogers," he preferred to be called "Roger."

Now the Sharon guy was a big fellow and nobody made fun of his name.

Well, I would have offered an apology; but, you defended the right of a minor child to use lewd language (which in reality is rather childish and has no connection with real adult maturity) while in a forum which is almost all adults.

Well, whadda ya know? Just did a search and saw the above.  All them there guys did live in the same county, Rogers, as I do. Ain't seen any of them in at least 40 years. Both Sharon and Roger went to the same high school up at Chelsea. Chelsea is North of Claremore, the county seat, and Tiawah is down Claremore.

Wirte? How y'all do thet?  ???  ;D I have read some of that other guy's phantasie stories, you know the kind that might have been true if something else had happened in real life?

Quote
"Phantasie is a process of creative imagining---not escapism, but, active, faithful imaging of possibilities." Dorothy Solle, Beyond Mere Obedience, translation of Phantasie und Gehorsam, Lawrence W. Denuf, trans. (Minneapolis: Augsburg, 1970) p. 30.

I do remember reading a true story about that other guy and a real cowboy and he added what could have happened if they had ever been alone together.
