TRUCE, n. Friendship.

2009 Update: A repatriation of hostilities.


Jamie Dawn said...

I love your definition today.

Truce: This is what Hatfield and McCoy called whenever they both needed to use the outhouse. The shooting would stop temporarily, then resume once the outhouse business was completed.

Christmas vacation in the trenches.

Once before I wasn't nice to J.D. and she didn't read my blog for ages. She labeled me ('hitonious') until she finally called a truce after I appoligized.

Flip said...

2009 Update: Aloof antagonism.

sauerkraut said...

You're are thinking Palin and Letterman, eh?

Truce is needed there. For her good.

TLP said...

Burying the hatchet somewhere other than in the other guy's back.

truce-beer me, and all is forgotten.

cooper said...

Truce, like a layover a temporary lull which can last forever or not so much.

Tom & Icy said...

I will gladly wait to bite you tomorrow if you don't bite me today.

Ariel the Thief said...

Truce, n, reloading.

TLP said...

Oooh, very good Ariel! I like that.

Robert Frost said...

Good fences make good neighbors.

Doug said...

JD, I bet the neighbors preferred the shooting.

Right, Nessa. A time to trade hymnals.

Jim, I still feel bad for one time in 2005 I wasn't nice to J.D. She's sweet. What's wrong with us?

Sounds like soft power to me, Flip.

Sauerkraut, why would I be thinking of Letterman and Palin?

TLP, in the back makes for a detente.

Actonbell, I'm new to that phrase. It's because I'm unmarried, isn't it?

Perfect analogy, Cooper. Not long enough if you're in a hurry.

An inverted Wimpy's Dilemma, Icy.

Exactly, Ariel. Well done.

TLP, you have discriminating tastes.

Bob, shrubbery and a twelve gauge makes a pretty fair neighbor, too.

Ariel the Thief said...

Thanks, TLP. ;)

My Okie great grandmother's eye was put out by that kind of neighbor, RBUD.

Doug said...

That happens to Okie great grandmothers more than you might think, Weirsdo.
