Actual line from an email I received this morning:
"Any advice or thoughts welcome, even though I know you get a little prickly talking about money. ;)"
Actual line from my response:
"You simultaneously asked me for advice and insulted me."
Actual response to my response:
"I didn't mean to insult you! Nor did I think I did! Wow. Never mind."
I suppose "prickly" could be something other than an insult...if, you know, I was a cactus.
