*grin*...having JUST read the banjo head thread, I doubt that I'd be able to concentrate on your 'troubles' if you adopted the uniform mentioned. And I do know that your troubles would NOT likely involve lack of attention...
Now the right attention is a different matter, and can be a very complex subject...*looking wise and serious*
as to payment...I don't believe I offered to pay...*bigger grin*, I merely noted that there often IS cost associated with listening...not necessarily in 'coin of the realm'...(I had a lady tell me once a LONG time ago, that since she had bared her soul to me in seeking advice, she certainly couldn't consider me a suitor, as I knew FAR too much now...*wry smile*)..(and I hadn't even asked!...but I was honored to be trusted)
ain't life interesting?
