How to win any argument

I thought this was rather amusing. I just tried it on Anja, attempting to claim that an espresso before bed helps one to obtain deep sleep. I really fancied an espresso, but my rhetoric, even with mention of a Southern Journal of Sleep Pattern Science in my argument, failed to win the day.

Priceless. Let me try some of these out in class, especially the first one! ;-)

Anja's too smart to fall for such silliness.

Your Poor Longsuffering Wife. I am tempted to start the process of canonization, so that she may be rightly known as:

Saint Anja

Pax et bonum

Well, being from Tennessee, like Dr. Jim, I very much appreciate the recognition that winning an argument begins with a bottle of Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey. Of course, a gun is needed to maximize persuasiveness.

Did you actually drink the bottle of Jack Daniels before initiating the argument with Anja?

I notice that everbody here is siding with Anja!

Not fair!

Concerning the "Jack Daniels", Looney, can't stand the stuff. Nor any "spirits". We kept a Vodka in the house not to drink but to treat mouth ulcers!
