Yeah, but you made it all much too simplistic! 
Sorry, no cigar! Not a chance, really! Those 
sentences are so short and simplistic that, I suspect, 
even our house guest (who is known as a "dog" by 
some people!) might, just possibly, figure them out! 
Now I ask you in all seriousness, Eldon, how do you 
expect people to learn to really "think for 
themselves" if they're not challenged to do so in some 
way? Eh? Or do you think that you "prefer" things 
that are "easier" to figure out? What is it? Are you 
so rich that you figure you shouldn't even have to 
try to figure out new things---surely not? 


PS And of course I might challenge myself to learn from your
"straightforwardness," maybe.
