ARGUE, v.t. To attentively consider with the tongue.

2009 Update: v.i. To celebrate the bonds of affection, made loose by proximity.

Merry Christmas to all who pass this way. Forgive your uncles.

Bierce's definition sounds like Captist Baptism.
Merry Christmas!

Can't imagine you arguing anything but certain subjects :)
Hope you're having the most wonderul Christmas

quilly said...

For today only I will not argue with you as long as you agree to do things my way. Have a Merry Christmas!

Ariel the Thief said...

Wow, Pascover, wonderful definition! Your Christmas must be inspiring.

Doug The Una said...

TLP, my nephew, niece and their cousins are now abundant enough to do all the fighting themselves. Best wishes to you and your extraordinary family today.

It does, Hobbes. Merry Christmas.

Mele Kalikimaka, Thom, for the last darn time this year.

Karen, i'll let Santa know you're so agreeable. Merry Christmas.

Thanks, Pia. Same to you.

Your indulgence is appreciated, Quilly. Merry Christmas.

You know, Ariel, the darnedest thing happened when I went to bed last night. First, the ghost of Ambrose Bierce appeared to me in chains of syntax...

Ariel the Thief said...

Don't feel bad, God's the only one who can be creative without chains. :-P

Battles. Revenge. Graves. Victim.

These seem overly harsh words for this post.

Yes, Anon, harsh.

Hope yours was a good one, Doug. And may the new year be better than the one preceding it.

My last uncle is less than a year older than me. I haven't seen him since we were in Oregon in 1985. He is almost as good as I am and for sure has done nothing wrong that needs forgiving. Sorry, perhaps I should forgive one of yours.
Sorry I didn't get here in time to wish you a merry Christmas, I do hope you had one.
I will wish ahead of time,
