It’s like sleeping pills with me, I’m afraid (I don’t take them - just going by what I’ve heard, so don’t send me emails of concern!) I’m a very ambitious kind of individual (what you Americans call a “winner”), and when I first blessed the SDMB with my presence I was not satisfied if I got fewer than 50 replies. If it didn’t go to two pages, it was a write-off as far as I was concerned.
Now, at least three pages (i.e. 100+ replies). But quality is as important as quantity to me, so if the cream of the posters, like Campion, AndyPolley, Starving Artist and Zoe, and even some of the compulsive night owls, such as Tomndebb, Excalibre, Miller and Marley, don’t chip in, I’m like Tiger Woods when he lips out from 60 feet. Not pumping my fist, but asking myself why?, what was wrong with my preparation?, do I need to get rid of Steve Williams?, would Fluff have read that better?, what type of grass seed are they using?, should I have had fried chicken for lunch again?, what would Fuzzy have done?
But, then I’m not like your average poster: my first two posts garnered around 350 replies between them, if I remember correctly. (I don’t re-read old posts - that’s living in the past; like a shark, or a tiger, I move forward, on to the next kill.)
