    I agree with dugimodo. This is a case where punctuation (quotation marks) can change the meaning. The first statement is valid if you are explaining what you said to the person on the day of the...

    Re: I love red meat

    I eat meat but not in huge amounts. I have friends who are vegetarian but you would probably never know unless you knew them personally. They never make a big fuss of it and at restaurants a quiet...

    Re: I don't have a partner - I have a wife.

    :clap

    It's not unlike using the term "Ms" when they think they don't want to offend someone. That often resulted in offending those who wanted to be called Miss or Mrs. Sigh...you can't win.

    Re: 10 glasses of water per day

    You can have my share of gin and I drink a lot of water because I like it but nothing like 10 glasses a day. There is water in so many other things you drink, soup, coffee, tea, beer etc.
