You see this is the kind of thing you get' Terry I don't know you but I told you what happened to me and you call me a liar.
1a fictitious or true narrative or story, especially one that is imaginatively recounted:
a delightful children’s tale
tales of witches and warlocks
she enjoyed hearing others tell their tales
No Pavmas, that is what you got.
By your definition "tale" can be a true story imaginatively recounted. This was my intent on using that word. The word "story" might have been
misconstrued in the same manner. My reply's intent was to thank you for the "yarn"? No you could miss interpret my intent there also. But back to
Recently I have been finding posts here on ATS where people make attempts to prove or demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt, strange experiences and
encounters with pages of reference and quotes etc. All of that added stuff, to my mind, offers little if any proof of the validity of the point.
When I came upon your post, I found it refreshing. No proof. Take it or leave it. My reply was to say that this is what we all do anyway. Interpret
and evaluate according to our own experiences and outlooks in almost any event. Just as you did in your interpretation of my use of the word 'tale'.
A month or so ago, I posted a thread called "Nuts and Bolts". It's intent was exactly like yours above. Just to relay an experience to the
community. If you read it, you will find that, just like your recounting, there is no proof. Nothing more than a tale (a true story imaginatively
recounted) for those who wish to listen.
