Diana says hi back, and see ya Sunday, probably after the game, as usual.
as for the BTW comment, I am here in 'invisible' mode most of the times. I never really left, I just don't participate in as many threads as I used too.
Ok boys and girls I didn't go to the high learning schools of Texas. In Mississippi they didn't teach us these big words so I went to webster to find out what incredulous means. After much research I've found that the word is actually a word and I can now use it during a game of scrabble.
Main Entry: in·cred·u·lous
Pronunciation: \(ˌ)in-ˈkre-jə-ləs, -dyə-ləs\
Etymology: Latin incredulus, from in- + credulus credulous
1 : unwilling to admit or accept what is offered as true : not credulous : skeptical
2 : incredible 1
3 : expressing incredulity <an incredulous stare>
— in·cred·u·lous·ly adverb
usage Sense 2 was revived in the 20th century after a couple of centuries of disuse. Although it is a sense with good literary precedent—among others Shakespeare used it—many people think it is a result of confusion with incredible, which is still the usual word in this sense.
Thank you thegr8fan I've learned something new.
