  1. Thanks for playing, even if you did get frustrated at the end. Any idea why that question bugged you so much? There must be a trigger there…

  2. @Mrs. Chili: Oh just stop it. Just because I came to your site and mouthed off you don’t have to make me pay.
    You said you don’t have a lot of insight into the male mind. I’ve been married for 38 years. How the hell do I know what I’ve been doing? 🙂

  3. @nessa: it’s OK, I won’t hate you for it. I don’t even care if you write it. It’s just a thang with me that when women SAY it I’m uncomfortable. My problem. Not yours. 🙂

  4. I took a run at the list and realized my guitar blog readers wouldn’t get it. Nonetheless, great therapy session! I now realize how accurate my Myers-Briggs score is.

  5. Commando, hee. My boys call it freeballin’ — and they always sing about it to the tune of the Tom Petty song, “Freefalling.” I can’t hear that song anymore without thinking of dangling nuts.

    But that’s pure Crumpacker.

  6. Hmmm…noticed you’ve been married for 38 years….funny, I’ve been married 40 years this August….that must be an interesting insight.

  7. Wait, I missed that. Women shouldn’t say the F word? I beg to differ. The way you can tell a lady is that we always pronounce the “g” in “fucking” (as opposed to saying “fuckin'” which is dreadfully crude).

    Can I say “effing”? Because that’s what I usually say when speaking, because of the kids and all.

  8. @Gretchen: God dammit. Pay attention. I SAID: you can use it or write it. I don’t care. It’s my problem that when a cunt uses it when I’m around I feel uncomfortable.
