    Pam doesn't refer to his teeth as teeth. He refers to them as "dental work", which is a pretty accurate statement.

    It certainly was enjoyable. I apologize if I came across as rather vitriolic at times. I have a tendency to slip in that direction, a prevalent carry-over from my fiction writing. Yet... like you said, I too think we agree on more things than we disagree on, only it appears I tend to interpret certain aspects of what we were discussing in a more cynical manner. I suppose the proverbial "potato-potato" is apt there.

    Cheers

    Yeah, I know, I don't mind anyone adding to this as I am sure you do not, but they need to read the story so far and try to keep some sort of flow going. You and I have added and subtracted characters, established a link between the Enterprise in the far future and The City of New Orleans steaming down the track for Kansas, where the cyclone, oddly, still hasn't struck Dorothy Gale's house. Say, figure out the next train stop, OK? Your turn to see who gets on or off.
