I distinguish between an apology and saying I’m sorry. I can apologise without being sorry.
I re-read your first post, after thinking about your second, and have come to the conclusion that while I may have not been so out of line to make some retort or other, the remark I did make was quite out of line. Your post did not merit my response.
Giraffe- a little less so, but again, I’m sorry. And also, to ramble a bit, my way of conveying that I’m over it, not feeling any hostility, in the way of patching things up, so forth, I would like to say that in a previous incarnation as a printer, two of my fingers had the first joint pulled off in a press. Since then, I have treasured my little, fingernail-less, prehensile, jointed stubs. I dare say I am not the only one…
With the waaaambulance and the no posts, I began to enjoy our exchange. In particular,
had me laughing. Sometimes I find things to be absolutely hilarious, that other people may find only funny.
No aplogy here, I believe we both gave as good as we got- just wanted you to know I enjoyed it, and hope you did too.
Again, after re-reading, I see that you weren’t completely hostile to me, that my hostility exceeded yours.
I am sorry.
