Oh, the square hole that, if the plate is missing, would not have anything
to see, until I saw someone replace it, and then I'd exclaim, "Oh, that
thingy ?" and you would say, "Yep, that thing that wasn't there a minute
ago, and is there now now."
And I'd say, "Oh."
BTW, you're a funny guy because you KNEW that I was going to to look at my
pant leg, huh ?
