At the last chess.com Christmas party I sold my emerald studded collar to buy a fine walnut/maple chess board for Prawn while he sold his ebony Simpson's set to buy me a crimson silk leash that looked like it was made of light. Discuss.
you could see ilikeflags but unfortunately he is away at the moment
Here's a link to the story online. The title is a poor choice. The classical story of the Magi and O.Henry’s story have virtually nothing in common. There is, however, a close link to another one: Van Dyke’s story about the 4th Magi.
A moral is often associated with a fable. A relevant fable, in this case, would be the chicken and the pig and their involvement in breakfast.
What the couple should have done (as my wife has just explained to me) is that she should have given him a lock of her hair, and he should have given her his watch. (Coincidentally, I will be giving my wife a security gate chain for Christmas, and she will be giving me a set of curling irons and tongs.)
That is not a shaggy dog story.
It's the sacrificial act that counts, I suppose, akin to "it's the thought that counts". The story that bothers me is David wishing for a drink from a brook that's behind enemy lines. Some brave heart risks life and limb to get it for him, and what does he do but pour it out on the ground, saying that it was too costly for him to drink.
2 Samuel 23:14-17 - but see also ...
"Ston, she is yours. You may find that having is not so pleasing a thing as wanting. This is not logical, but it is often true." -- Spock (Amok Time)
i think u havent read the story
This could be just as good as "If you know" but it would take so much patience and persistent opacity.
O (Henry), I don't know.
Do you imagine that kurogkug obtained a passing grade?
Sparknotes was many times a life saver for me, you can try checking that out.
Do Sparknotes cover First Aid Guides?
There's nothing Sparknotes doesn't cover.
If you are really stuck, draw a whale. Who would give an "F" to a whale?
Be sure it is happy and smiling though, otherwise it won't work.
I question the wisdom of this recommendation.
