*putting the apprentice's hat on*

Speaking about smithing (or is it smiting?*s*) words in practice, imagine flashing one, and instead of electric-blue light, the object of flashing perceives the common absurdity of rather obscene play!

In the case of light, a thunderbolt might explain the flash.

In the other case *blushing*, may I as rather more familiar with Greeks, allude to good old daddy's "flashed" manifestation as thunderbolt?

In the case of LB, well, he mentioned thunderbolt since he thinks in terms of light by name default, so the idiocy in the post might, just might possibly be excused. Unless he's again working as a...

According to a wonderfully original utterance, this time it was a bathing tub full of hot water, and what did all three people miss?

No, not a plastic duck, no, not a plastic boat...

no, not a teddy but an angry bear to play with! Gee! I just can't miss that next time!

*scratching head... 3 in a tub?... sounds kinda...*
