That wasn't where I was going but I have to admit that its an interesting idea. I was more along the lines of "I really wish I was single again".

I think kopek and Old Wench are married and since Old Wench has points, kopek is lamenting the future "rubbing it in" from being beaten.

At least, that's what I'm gleaning from the posts.

But at least we're tied when it comes to the Themed List. And I do have the satisfaction of suggesting one of the folks she got points for ------- which I keep reminding HER of.

What gets me is she had two dead, and only two dead, and both unique. I'm sure its happened before but when it hits this close to home ---------

Kopek, look on the bright side--between the two of you, you can have 26 stiffs!

Think of the possibilities! So many targets...
