Natal attraction

Birthday Boy
Yes, I got to it a full six minutes before it was no longer his birthday, so I humbly beg his pardon, but, well ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY to apostle_of_eris , whose calm and densely thoughtful observations of the world around him have enriched the life of everyone in CasaKaffyr for a good number of years now. May this season of lights bring warmth to you, and may the next year be good for you.

Why thank you. That's got to be the sweetest way every I've been called a smart-ass.

There's a genuine problem there, unfortunately. From time to time, I make an observation which is responded to (more or less, or literally), "Neil, you're weird." So I point and say, "OK, there where I'm pointing with my finger. Is that what I just said it is?" And the answer is, "Yes. You're weird."
So it makes reality-checking really challenging. If there's a well-documented track record that some of the things I see that other people don't see REALLY ARE THERE, JUST AS i SEE THEM, then it's a lot trickier trying single-handedly to verify some new, non-consensusal [or whatever the word form is] whatever that I just noticed.

Weirdness and accuracy sometimes go together; also, weirdness and being, you know, a person, are sometimes the same thing. Also, you and "smart-ass"? Have never conflated in my head.
