Pete appears to have all but disappeared off the face of the planet.
To those that care I offer my sincerest condolences but for the rest of us happy folk it is like breaking wind, a revolution, a rebirth, from monochrome to technicolour.
The colour simile really fits as this may be the reason for the mental decline of that once fertile and, sometimes, amusing wordsmith. Be it that he was only at his best when berating me I, Glynsky the Magnanimous always forgave – but Pete finds it difficult to bend (arthritis?) from his self imposed ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’.
To return to colour and Pete. This whole discourse surrounds three colours, blue, red and white – two of which are prime and one, we are told by some, does not exist.
Whew, that link was a whole lot more interesting than the subject of this post!!!
So, when faced with ‘what are your favourite colours’ poor ol’ Pete made the wrong choice – ONLY…
… by one point, but still the wrong choice.
So, the problem:
Given that Blue = 49, Red = 50 and White = 23
It is proven that:
Blue plus White = 72
Red plus White = 73
73 – 72 = 1
1 = more than 0.
AVB = better than, but more letters than AW.
In certain areas the Ecuadorian restaurants are better than others.
Some places are easier to get to than others.
QED 1. Red plus White = more than Blue plus White.
QED 2. Pete in a pickle.
QED 3. Pete, feeling unloved, abandons all his fans and sulks – not caring about those that really need him.
Yours, diablog, at a loss, minus a friend, reading less – but trying to smile on through Pete’s anguish
