Sophomoric emasculation of a pedant is completely different, however.
Oh, I haven't been sophomoric since 1986..
Giving up sophomoric behavior is like being nailed to a cross of dull. Or a cross made of blue cheese, lutefisk or something else that makes a palate blanche.
In other news, I got to gaze at my lady's face in front of a famous Japanese waterfall today. We ate delicious fish and noodles and had a great series of conversations. We even had our first language-based misunderstanding, subsequent argument and makeup.
We talked a lot about tradition and dating and I learned more than I did in this thread. However, genuinely helpful people at least gave me a degree of steadiness for my intended wooing.
Other people just talked on the internet. They talked a lot. I was busy pursuing adventure and the fairer sex. (Not intending to imply that the fairer sex may not be one's own... I just prefer the one that I find fairer. I'd say none of your business what that is, but I've said "lady" a few too many times in this thread to claim ambiguity).
In the end, I'm an extremely happy man who is really enjoying himself. I'll high-5 myself until someone notices a guy high-5ing himself and decides to join in said noble pursuit.
Or, people will just walk past and say "Dude, why is that crazy dude just jumping up and down, clapping?"
