In reply to: chadi 's message, "What does that mean?" on 13:49:06 10/03/02 Thu

Indeed, what does a gentle kiss between nervous young lovers mean? A rose by any other name, dear Chadi, a rose by any other name.

This quite reminds me of Mr. John Whitbread and Miss Gloria Foot. Mr. Whitbread had a habit of working in his garden bare chested, which is still quite scandalous in a community like Saint Mary Mead but was even more so in those days. Each day Miss Foot would flirtatiously walk by and attempt to strike up a converstation. "My what hearty pansies" or "Your raspberries look quite tasty." But Mr. Whitbread was oblvious to her intent and would respond with a shrug and a frown.

Eventually, Miss Foot gave up on the whole thing and ended is today known as Viscountess Breem. As for our Mr. Whitbred with his defective pherhormone receptors, he never married. However, he is not lonely. He takes in roommates who are likewise confirmed bachelors that share his interests. Currently, it is a Mr. James McNamara. I'm not quite sure that I approve of an Aglican and a Catholic living under the same roof no matter how platonic.
