Yeah, you're right there. I'm very literal myself, and this sort of
thing usually matters a lot to me. I think maybe this time I came at
it already humbled and ready to give in.
But that is what makes it difficult to learn the convention.
mm & Logan-
Of course you two are correct in your analysis of whether noon is

I mentioned the SAT because a lot of people don't know their IQ.
I never boasted about my SAT score, and I never said what it was. I
only implied it would be higher than that, and the motivation wasn't
boasting, it was about compatibility.
