also going back to the one about the identical drinks (i know its old. if you dont wan't to humor me, that's alright).

my guess was as follows:

you said they were both served the drinks; no one said anything about the two drinking them. one drank it, the other didn't?

Haha, yeah. Maybe that one was too easy-- it just seemed appropriate.

I would've just answered "No.", then it'd make no difference. =P

he was on his way to a very impotent meting that involved his financial future and his car broke down?
The sun was raising up above the high
and dense entangled spider's web.  The dew
was dripping from the silky strings and down
through canopy to underbrush.  It splashed
the puddle making one more fountain spring.
