Unfortunatly Carol - Martin is used to the laughter - it's something he's heard all of his life. From the other boys in the locker room in Junior High, the women he first made feebly attepts to date, to his boss when he asks for a raise, and especially his wife when he tries to exert any authority around the house. So our laughter falls on deaf ears.
That won't stop us from laughing at him anyway.
Oh well. He'll probably post another message pretending to be me again. I don't blame him - it's the closest he gets to rational thought.
And now - back to our adult conversation.
