As Mike has so kindly pointed out, fine and whatever are the two most whine-killing words in the English language. That is why I use them so often! (Although, you know … now that the IO isn’t around, I don’t have to use them as much!) When Chelsey & I use them on IM, we even emphasise the tone that most women use when they say those words:
*TONE* Fine, WHATEVER */TONE*
Chelsey totally doesn’t get HTML, but she has at least learned enough to know that the tone marks denote the beginning and the end of the command. What better way is there to teach someone the basic fundamentals of HTML!
