i don't understand her post. "p_____" stands for what?? wwh's subsequent post implies it's "pickles", so i'm not sure i understand the significance of not just spelling it out.

My pudish ex was very angry with me when i used dildoes in (or as dr. bill put it " will dill do"?) in a scrabble game.. as i recall, got a triple word score for it..(one of the d's, so it counted two ways!) and a lick of chocotate p_ n_s_s -- fill in the blanks with vowels... did you really not know that? Obviously you go to the wrong kind of candy stores!

sheeeshh.. glad i asked

i'll happily admit that at first blush i read that as pansies.

i'm still not entirely sure i understand the intrinsic* value of the confection you're suggesting, but then again i don't care much for chocolate.

* Atomica helpfully provides the following:

inĚtrinĚsic
(1)Of or relating to the essential nature of a thing; inherent.
(2)Anatomy. Situated within or belonging solely to the organ or body part on which it acts. Used of certain nerves and muscles.[E.A.]
