Hey, Fred C! You might like this...

I have a brother in law who knows about my coming on this site. Just the other day, he asked what was happening on it, and I told the tale of our "spat". I mentioned that I might have started it by unfairly maligning you for studying "Aesthetics" in college. I explained that while I had a rough idea of the meaning of the word, it didn't seem like something that would be a college course. But that with further examination of other dictionary's definitions, especially the Funk & Wagnall's that also defines it as a philosophy, I've had second thoughts. And they do indeed teach philosophy in college( I have a friend with a philosophy degree. He installs replacement windows for a living, but that's neither here nor there). In that light, why NOT a course on aesthetics?


So he said, "Well, I should HOPE they teach that in college!"

Teach what?

"What you were talking about"


"Yeah. I mean you'd want the guy to know what he was doing, right?"

I don't understand...

"You're talking about that stuff they give you before you have SURGERY, right?"



You thought I was bad! And I deal with this shit on a near daily basis. It's no WONDER I gravitate to message boards. I'm STARVED for conversation! In ANY form!


I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!
