TurkeyBreath: ...may I pretend...

Honest Abe Lincoln once asked some yokel a question. "If I pretend a dog's tail is a leg, how many legs does it have?" "Five," says the yokel. "Nope," says Abe, "pretending a dog's tail is a leg don't make it a leg."

I personally like to pretend my net worth is $400 million and that Blythe Danner is coming over tomorrow to clean up my apartment, tune the harpsichord, and spend a night of passion with me. None of those has ever happened, not even the tuning the harpsichord part.
