: And I never understood the sly boots thing. Can you explain that to me Marcia? Thought not. A saying from so far back in the dim past that nobody knows what it means anymore. You probably heard it said as a small child back when Bluebirdasaurus roamed the earth, thought it was cute, and have repeated it since.
Oh-HO, Gnomeling! You ARE treading dangerous ground now, aren't you? Apparently your Gnome Schooling classes didn't include such lessons in life as, "Never Arouse the Wrath of a Large Woman," eh? Too bad! You are about to find yourself in the midst of a hair-pulling, mud-slinging, rock-throwing, Gnome-bashing war, the likes of which you can't even begin to imagine! It WON'T be pretty, you sawed-off, stubby-armed, bandy-legged little Gnomino!
Calling me OLD, eh? Insulting my memory and intelligence, eh? Well, for your information and edification, my squat little friend, "Sly Boots" simply means, "clever girl/fellow"...and the reference, if I'm not mistaken, goes back to the old fairy tale of Puss In Boots, and his visit to the queen, and his seven-league magic boots, etc! SOME of us can remember back to our misspent youths, and have actually RETAINED a bit of what we learned in those days!
Geeeesh!! Must I explain EVERY STEENKING THING to you, Gnomebler? I guess there's gnome rest for the weary to be found in Mohicanland, today!!
