Anyway, why use more words than you need to be clear? I sometimes rewrite to see if I can be more brief. Believe it or not. Imagine how long my posts would be if I didn't try to summarize.
Let's practice. If someone asked you a simple question, such as "What is Titanic?", (capital T) how would you answer, the shortest possible way, but an answer which still explained?
Maybe I would say something like, "Titanic was the name of a large passenger ship that hit an iceberg and sank on its first voyage across the Atlantic ocean."
And yet, even that might be too much. Heh. How about, even more directly, "Titanic was the name of a ship."? I don't think a shorter answer is possible.
Maybe the questioner only cared that Titanic wasn't the name of a planet or a mountain range. So that was cleared up for him with the second answer, without going into unwanted info like icebergs and loss of life.
Let them ask questions if they want more info, eh?
A slow day today. No horse races or Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Happy Mother's day.
