Intimation

Intimation: Hinting at a meaning but not stating it explicitly.

One of our primary goals in this relationship is to demonstrate unerring respect for each other. There are so many ways it can be done–words and deeds are the most usual ways of showing respect, or disrespect, ha ha. There are all kinds of things you can do to show respect–holding the door, being on time, making an effort to dress nicely–in clean clothes that help you smell good. If you don’t smell good everything else may fall apart. Think of it, a person losing out on love because he doesn’t shower regularly, or a person whose children won’t sit on his lap because he smells like horse manure and onions. How sad, but how avoidable!

Anyway, let’s watch some TV. You sit on the couch over there,  and I’ll sit over here by the scented candle. Let’s watch another episode of “The Outsider.”

You know, avoiding bathing for too long can give a person fairly intense body odor.

When was the last time you took a shower?

There’s a way of saying some things that puts them into a rather unsavory, even reprehensible, category of speech.

I’ll drop the pretense my friend (?): You are lying.

I think there’s a piece missing from the nether part of your wardrobe. I know you’re from Inverness, but here in Ohio we like to keep our things private.

I think we’re going to hear a Royal “waaa-waaa” pretty soon!

Well, this isn’t exactly our worst effort to date.
