>>(Kym) Is this an attempt at humor?
>No, it was a _successful_ attempt, obviously.
To have replied "No, there was no attempt involved, it was humor, and damn
good humor at that" would have been cleaner, clearer, and stronger.
>No. Official Theosophical doctrine says that personality is an illusion.
Congratulations on your mastery of illusion.

Now there, you know it is not like me to call someone names.

You've also provided me growth in other areas.

Unanswerable at this time. . .

A sexist, a "fruitist," and now a satirist! How do you juggle it all?

Well, what have we here? After giving your proposal some thought (knowing
how you toy not with women's emotions) I realized the greatest favor I could
do us both was to politely refuse. For the following would have occurred:
You would have left me standing, broken-hearted and humiliated, at the
altar, because that's the kind of guy you are - and then I, in turn, would
have had to hunt you down and teach you the meaning of the phrase "Hell hath
no fury like a woman scorned," because that's the kind of woman I am. This
way with the, again polite, non-acceptance of your proposal - You are happy,
I am happy, and the Lords of Karma have just cranked up their stereo and are
boogy-ing to "Jingle Bell Rock." See what a fine, fine thing I have done?
And you think I'm malicious. . .
I look forward to being one of your greatest spiritual allies.
