Going to start talking figuratively now. . .

    I think from now on I should just start talking figuratively whenever I want.

    But I'm not gonna tell you when I'm talking figuratively. You'll just have to figure it out.

    So in some other thread if you see me talking about the time I smothered a 2 year old I was babysitting, you'll have to guess whether I'm being literal or not.

    And when I tell the tale about the time I laughed so hard I shot Pepsi out my nose, I could be serious, or I could be being figurative.

    And if I say that I'm a 32 year old billionaire heart surgeon with a third arm that helps me with surgury. . . you'll just have to figure it out.

    It might be a bit weird, but I guess if that's what Yahweh does it must be better for SOME reason right?

    As I read this, it is literally raining cats and dogs. I could literally gag on the thought of you smothering a 2-year-old, but I have a million things to do today and cannot waste the few precious seconds I have thinking about this. I have to hit the bricks, go fall in love, rack my brain, and climb the ladder of success.

    All the world's a stage and I think you are just acting up to be screaming for attention.

    LOL OTWO, I haven't seen that many figures of speech crammed into one paragraph since Revelation chapter 12.

    Don't forget to simulataneously describe yourself as "one" and also "three in one". That way, people who believe in "one" can point to your descriptions of yourself as "3 in 1" as figurative, while those who believe in "3 in 1" can point to the "one" descriptions as figurative.

    If I climb the ladder of success first, it'll be easier to fall in love and rack my brain. I don't typically fall from a sitting or standing position, and if I did, I probably wouldn't rack anything.

    I think Lore and I are in the same boat, having the sword of Damocles hanging over our heads, hoping to win the day between the devil and the deep blue sea. I will have to walk a mile in Lore's shoes before I throw dust in his eyes.

    Figuratively speaking, this thread is blowing my mind.

    I'm leaving this thread, but I'll be back. If I don't come back you can just pretend I did.

    I smothered a 2 year old I was babysitting,

    Depends on the use of the word 'smothered'.

    'Smothered' to death or 'smothered' with kindnes?

    I'm a 'good' musician.

    Figure out if I'm a musician with moral standards or very competent musically.

    There's a name for this but I can't remember it......fallacy of misplaced concreteness methinks.

    The watchtower has taght us well!!
