BLACKGUARD, n. A man whose qualities, prepared for display like a box of berries in a market- the fine ones on top- have been opened on the wrong side. An inverted gentleman.

2010 Update: The third person, universal.

Good morning. Just for the Hell of it, I'm posting the first comment today.

Nessa said...

What to say? What to say?

The Serpent really wants me to comment on the first line of paragraph 5 in the last post but I do not wish to be labeled a blackguard, so I will slither on by or just hide behind the It.

I think we're all just grateful Nessa didn't arrive with a link to herself.

BLACKGUARD, n. Nessa confused the hell out of me. and beyond that this whole word confuses me. Maybe I just want to get on the plane and in the air to Seattle :) LOL

Ariel the Thief said...

Even black needs guard, obviously.

TLP said...

So, everyone's afraid to write, "an African-American soldier"?

Nessa said...

I bow to your courage, TLP.

; )

Jim said...

I keep my guard up, be he/she red, black, white, yellow, or brown.

Re yesterdays story, the senator's cigar
filled with leaves of optimist reminded me
of 40's and blunts.
And I don't even smoke, anymore.

First to get killed in older movies.

Ariel the Thief said...

LOL TLP! That never came to me.

Doug The Una said...

How was that, Karen?

Nessa, discretion is the soul of valor, isn't it?

Karen, we're all glad Nessa showed up.

Safe travels, Thom.

Ariel, if the red queen had them, shouldn't we all?

TLP, if Aral still came around she might have gone with position 2 on a basketball court.

Nessa, TLP just knows her audience.

Jim, and I've never figured out what blunts are exactly. Swisher Sweets, more or less?

Yup, Icy. And some pretty recent ones too.

Ariel, you're pretty innocent for a vampire.

Jim said...

Swisher sweets, more, yes, could be.
They are pretty well emptied of tobacco and filled with MJ.
40's are forty ounce bottles of beer. I learned all this in the Internet, blogging of all places!
The younger set has 40's and blunts parties. I won't post this for Mr. Bacchus.
One more thing, I have never smoked MJ, let alone inhaled.

I hope that MJ didn't mind you smoking her?
