I don't know how to respond to that. It's so off-base. You awful, awful person.

I know.  I'm sorry.  Really I should get rid of the lilacs and plant more hydrangeas.

No, don't.  That's very wrong.

Is it bad if I can't tell a lilac from a hydrangea?

I am able to identify roses and tumbleweeds.

<edit> I have examined photographs by means of the internets.  Lilacs are better.

My grandmother loved hydrangeas.  But, then again, my grandmother died.

They smell divine. Lilacs, not photographs.

Unless they are scratch and sniff.

Did she die on the day you were supposed to give your last presentation in speech class?

Got it, scratch and sniff lilacs are stinky.

Every photograph is scratch-and-sniff if you adjust your aesthetics accordingly.

I can explain it again, but I can't understand it for you.

<unrelated... related... who can tell? not me>

The reason you get the responses you do is because you sometimes act like a complete a$$hat. There's a difference between doing what you do and disagreeing while offering suggestions.

Next time when you wonder whether you should make that kind of a post, just don't do it.
