Working very late on a Saturday, are you writing a book or an article?

When one is writing it does not matter what day of the week it is. The object is to finish the task.

Tigers 46 V Raiders 6 in the Under 20 Grand Final this afternoon. Oh and the Wallabies had the crap kicked out of them by the Springboks.

I wish I were doing either of those! What I'm doing instead is grading a ton of papers. If all goes well, and if I don't get too absorbed in the Rams game, I might finish them today.

I had a pleasant but odd experience at Saks yesterday. One of the ladies at the perfume counter was obviously Chinese, and she talked exactly like the stereotype of a Chinese restaurant proprietor, i.e., loudly and aggressively. She asked if there was anything she could help me with, and when I told her she said (yelled) "OH YOU LIKE TOM FORD THAT'S VERY GOOD ONE!" But that's not the odd part yet; the odd part was at the end of every sentence she called me honey, but in that same aggressive voice: "SMELLS GOOD, DON'T YOU THINK, HONEY?" Since she was also very beautiful, and had called me honey probably six or seven times, I decided to purchase my fragrances there rather than at Neimans, where I had planned to buy them. (I should add that there is an outrageously good looking guy who works at the fragrance counter at Neimans, but he was at the wrong counter and (unfortunately) has never called me honey.)

If a beautiful woman called you honey, wouldn't it make you happy, even if she said it in an aggressive tone of voice? And wouldn't you buy what she was selling, especially if you were planning to buy it anyway? If the answer to either of these questions is no, then you must be a different kind of person than me.

Uh-oh, I missed the joke! Now I"m curious, though. Could you please tell me what the joke was? (I am too much of a simpleton to see it on my own, unfortunately.)

your ambiguity was puzzling, that is all.

The joke was about picking an axe wound over a chocolate starfish.

Aha, I see. The guy at Neimans was a more attractive specimen of masculinity than the woman at Saks was of femininity. (In other words, he was better in his kind than she was in hers.) If I could choose either as a romantic partner, and be sure of getting what I wanted, I wouldn't have any hesitation about my choice. But she called me honey, and that was enough to make the difference in the particular case of buying fragrance.
