That being said, Mary's comment gave me a lovely image of Mary (and I don't know Mary so it was actually a short fiery spirited women with dark curly hair) stepping up onto a soapbox and proclaiming vehemently against soapboxes and their evils. While that is not her intent, it is the image it brought to mind. A cartoon that made me smile.
And that image made me
smile! I'll cop to the "fiery spirited", all right -- how could I not? But my hair is light and very very straight. And, yes, I was indeed soapboxing about soapboxes. So, time to take my own medicine and bow out. Thanks for the nice words, David
