    "That's a fine how do you do." What the hell does that even mean.

    Also, when people refer to themselves in third person narrative.

    Right now it's "God willing" that's driving me crazy. It's as if you didn't have anything to do with it.

    Remember how elders would exhort us to "stay in the middle of God's organisation" for safety?

    Ain't that stupid? How the hell can everyone stay in the middle???? By definition, it'd be impossible, someone has to be on the outside!!!!

    And another thing..................

    how come elders can "step down" ?

    When did they ever 'step up' ? Huh?

    "the Truth" as a proper noun.

    "That's a fine how do you do." What the hell does that even mean.

    "How do you do" is a standard greeting. So, replacing "standard greeting" into the sentence, we have "That's a fine greeting." Greetings are supposed to be cheerful and show some respect, so I've always read that phrase to mean that the person is not showing any respect or consideration. I don't use this phrase, but I don't mind it either.

    Caedes answers my stupid questions with the blatantly obvious in a sarky way (I love it though, really)

    And then I say "oh no you di'nt" (hee hee) Just cause I know he loves it

    Mrs. Caedes
