Dear keNt,
Ah jeez - that's the wrong adress. keNt, keNt - you're not reading my posts attentively. In a previous one, I requested you to send it to my address IN THE STATES. Now, Saudi Arabia isn't part of the USA ( yet ).
And no need for the warning - I make sure they tie a DOUBLE-knot in it; haven't had any puddles yet.
Regards,
John

Dear John:

"... Saudi Arabia isn't part of the USA (yet)".

You mean you haven't read about George's secret plan? He's going to annex the entire Middle East and have you develop and implement the new English-For-Food curriculum. Ha! And you thought Puerto Rico would be the 51st state!

Hey: Do you think dmb minds that we've hijacked his thread and turned it into a self-gratifying tag-team comedy duet? Sorry dmb!

I'm going home now. Cool

Regards,
KENt

Dear keNT,
Aw shucks - we're just funnin' and boys will be boys. But I'd suggest not using the word " hijacking " too loosely these days. Now, say good-night, Gracie.
Regards,
John

Dear itslatedoors,
That's funny - I thought we were hilarious. But I think I'll stick with the day job, anyway. ( And my students think I'm funny - very funny indeed ).
Regards,
John

Actually Itslate, I rather found todays diatribe quite humourous. A bit of levity of a different sort can sometimes be just what a person needs. TryIt!!! You might like it!!! .....or you could quit your own day job and start your own thread. ReaL people , real time........... beats Monty Python re-runs anyday. Bye for now

Dear itslatedoors,
Just as I'd feared - I was too subtle. I thought I'd given a big enough hint by starting my post with " That's funny " ( as in " strange " ), but it seems I was wrong. However, I'm sure your students find you terribly funny.
Regards,
John

Hello Itslate! Levity can be found at all 24 hour convenience stores around China. While there, a person can also stock up on optomism, laughter,goodwill and comraderie...all at great prices for everyday living. Oh........ and toilet paper too. Bye for now
