Look, I came here for an argument.
The Obamacare rollout’s eristic
The Regime’s hiding every statistic
But Barry says “Wait!
This ‘product’ is great!”
He’s corrupt, he’s deranged, egotistic
Some people think you’re hubristic, when you’re just being eristic, but fail to apologize when their counter arguments don’t stick ;-)
The eristical deployment of our company’s latest product was a result of procrustean demands by management.
Catch that pic I tweeted you
For all others its on Lucianne.com.
Saw it earlier.
I dispute this meaning for eristic, I object and will argue against it seeing that it is far too controversial, disputes, alarums and disputations will occur! Harrumph!
no you didn’t
Yes, I did.
An argument isn’t the same thing as a contradiction.
We had a rough might. Chan collapsed out in the yard last night, I had to carry her in, sat with her on my lap awhile, she took her meds etc and before it was time for bed she collapsed again and I held her while she convulsed. We really thought she would not make it through the night, esp after our experience with Lucius who passed quickly. Xshub and I slept in the couches in the fam room so as to be with her. Her breathing eased she got up to drink at various points and even scratched to go out during the night. I called the vet when they opened at 7 am and we took her and they admitted her until dr McDaniel comes in at 10:30. She will call me after she examines her. She was stable this AM, walked into the vet with her tail wagging. Poor Jules is so sad and worried.
Yes it is. ;-)
I would have been here earlier, but the eristics at Microsoft turned off my computer as I was in the act of replying to you! Something about an update...
I am so sorry to hear that...
Hope she turns well..:(...
Sorry to hear. I hope all turns out well.
Yes it is
