"A true friend stabs you in the front" - Oscar Wilde
*giggle* English was not my Mom’s first language either and she knew more than the lot of us put together. My Dad had a degree in English and she would regularly have contests where a word definition would come up, the dictionary would come out and guess who won? We kids would laugh & laugh when she would say to my Dad, “The Oracle has spoken”.
@Rob, I thought it was something like that, but then you still had the logic backwards: you meant: “Headboards only make sense, if you have textured walls”.
It’s the headboard that either makes sense or not. Not the textured wall.
Textured walls never make sense. With or without a headboard. (as in that they would serve a purpose). A headboard, however, CAN make sense (as in, have a purpose) … as you undoubtly now agree.
Silly me, I have always had headboards. I have *always* read in bed because of that I imagine.
@Deannie – either you have always had a headboard, or you have never read in bed. 🙂
@Paul – Yes, if you read in bed, without a headboard, and have textured walls you should not forget the fact that you are reading in bed, without a headboard, and that you have textured walls!
I gave myself road rash last night by “scootching down” as I was reading – but I neglected to take the pressure off of my back. Ouch!
I was about to write that I was with Deannie on this one, when I thought: What IS the opposite?
Textured walls DON’T make sense if you have a headboard?
Textured walls only make sens if you don’t have a headboard?
Having a headboard only makes sense if you have textured walls?
Having a headboard doen’t make sense when you don’t have textured walls?
So, I’m not so sure anymore.
I do think, though, that headboards DO make sense, when you don’t have walls.
Especially if you, like me, like reading in bed.
See, I would have thought it would be the exact opposite
