Touting the Gorilla's horn (Read 1062 times)

    Dude, wow!! This is incredible. Check out this log - http://runningahead.com/logs/d08fa62dc20d47f5993af92bada54397 Notice the lonely "beer run" category? The one on 7/25/2008. It. Is. Unbelievable. That was the day this elite runner needed beer and needed miles. Catch that, he needed both. So what did he do? He just ran to the convenience store and lugged a 12-pack home. All while still staying under 10:00 pace. Incredible. Wow. Really, wow!! If it were me, I'd be very proud of that run. Heck, I'm even proud just to have met the fella. Wow. Dude.

      Did you decide you didn't want to toot his horn? But yeah, that pace... whew!

        Tooting horns is dangerous. And potentially stinky.
          Lame. Weak. And it's tooting not touting you grammatically-challenged imbecile.

            Is it ironic, or just humorously coincidental that you're lecturing me on this? I'm confused.

              Pay attention, EP.

                What? Lame? I thought it was a grand effort. I mean running under 10 m/m with beer? Dude. Awesome work.

                  I didn't even mention the bottle of Diet Coke. It was two liters. Two!

                    Actually, while the standard saying is, in fact, "tooting your own horn", touting is an amusing little play on words. One which apparently escaped you both. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/tout#Verb

                      And for your pedantic ego's sake, I'm going to go right ahead and pretend I believe you.

                        And it as a 12 pack, not a 6...

                          I'm aware of the word "tout". But I think your play on words was lame-o. I'll be sure to tell you so in person, if you decide to stick around until 6 PM to hand me my Monkey medal.

                            We may be out of medals by 6pm.
                            Then I shall start early. Who will know?
