My relevance to this world can only be quantified through the use of an asymptotic line as it approaches 0. For those of us who tossed our math studies out the window when we didn’t need them anymore, I will translate. I’m about as important as fly squat.

Still – my peculiar and rather nerdy mind comes up with Mark-isms. I provide Mark-isms for those who:
1) Would like yet another reason to look down their noses at me.
2) Are collecting evidence to lock me up for good.
3) Enjoy correcting me.
4) Have peculiar and rather nerdy minds.

Each Mark-ism is numbered. The one I’m about to share is number 783. That’s not to say that I actually generated 782 Mark-isms that came before this one. It just means that I plucked a sufficiently large but random looking number out of the ether that sounds like I have been generating Mark-isms for a while. The number 783 sounds less improbable than a nice rounded number like 1000. Unfortunately, obtaining the milestone of 1000 Mark-isms is now highly improbable. Let’s face it – I simply don’t have the energy to come up with this sort of nonsense 217 more times. I should have introduced my first Mark-ism to Lumber-Jocks as number 998, thereby, providing me the chance to obtain Mark-Ism number 1000 within a reasonable amount of time. However, 998 felt almost as improbable as 1000.

Two things should be clear by now:
1) I really am peculiar and nerdy.
2) You’re still reading so … join the peculiar and nerdy club.

Mark-ism 1000!! – I mean 783.
If people don’t have an issue with the people I have an issue with, I have an issue.

Yeah so – please accept my apologies. ;)

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Congratulations, Fiddler!

Now that you have exhausted your collection of Mark-isms, I guess all you can do now is have your Fiddle ready to play and wait for a City to start burning…

Then, you can start playing your Fiddle while the City burns. :) LOL

Mark-ism #1001

Enjoy! :)

Cheer up… it could be 2001 instead… :)

I don’t know what is worse, your post or the fact that I completely understood it. Keep them flowing. :-)

By the way, the ones that complain about this post just aren’t very fun people.

Oh now, this is so unfair. You all are better at Mark-isms than I am!

The only consolation I have is that Mr. Davisson has had this same ability from the day He was born. The rest of you…. Well…. I am completely humbled.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
