I caught that . His hyperbole got away with itself
I did that once. Told the wife I was going to go get a paint brush. Ran like the devil to Cabelas for a new rifle. When I got home the wife made a comment about the brush working for latex. I was busy trying to figure out how to get the new toy in the house and not really listening. Then the hyperbole kicked in and I said I didnt get a paint brush because they didnt have one for spandex. Hyperboles will get you hurt.
“His hyperbole got away with itself”
Heck, LeoWindhorse, I’d build a wall somewhere (anywhere!) in that state just to say we’d done it and let Colorado cry about it.
