Naw, I've decided to become something of a Zen type of gardener. Things are what they are and people will do what they will do. I'm focusing on watching my new seedlings settle in and smiling on the happy state of my own garden. Smiley Happy

 

(ETA) Just to clarify, I'm not saying that I'm giving tacit approval to drapping. I'm simply saying that we're all adults and I'm not going to get emotional overwrought at someone else's choices; I only have control over my own.

So I take it that was your disclaimer?   Yes, no major finance decision should be made while under the influence of any substance.  As responsible adults all issues that are this serious should be made in a sober condition.  In no way would there be any thread at myFICO that would condone such behavior.

 

Now that should buy you about 30 more posts!

I agree.  I'm just poking some good fun at my own past decisions.  When I drapp again in the future, I will have decided to drapp while sober and the actual act of drapping will be in homage to my earlier decisions.

Gotcha! I thought that you meant this thread to be lighthearted; my responses were more for the sake of newcomers, so that they don't think that myFico members endorse drapping. Smiley Happy

Re: I want to go a Drapping

Perhaps we have however stumbled upon a new word.  I wonder how that would be defined in the dictionary?

 

As the name Shogun implies, I have great respect for the Zen technique, as I am in the garden.  There's a couple cards I want down the line, but there is a time and place for that!

I doubt it. This is as lame as the guy who tried to coin the phrase 'app mapping':
