Could it be a 'Freudian' thing? :wink:

I sympathise Shufti - how could the ladies possibly feel threatened by worms. But I fear you may have a deeper problem. Why would you even consider attending a Residents Association meeting? It is surely the home of all the petty minded moaners determined to tell everyone else how to run their lives (mow their lawns, weed their flower beds, paint their doors etc.) Unless, of course, you only go to wind them up, in which case I'd love to come with you to enjoy the show.

Not as I recall. Unless a target has been 'registered', (see the pam), it means, " Have a go and see what it does."
But you'll have to allow me some slack: I was never with the ' drop-shorts'.

Maybe not by a worm but I was given hell by a flagellate: bloody giardia. I felt fine, ate normally and passed flyspray until they worked out I was hosting an uninvited colony. I recommend it as a technique for weight loss - if you can keep up the loo paper.
