I disagree with you, @Jiki, but the real issue here is HOW to start a friendly conversation!! Suppose I started with; "I think your kid is ugly!! You should have had a nicer looking one!! And your knife sucks!!" You'd probably be disappointed and insulted!! But you know I would never do that, because I know you love your kids (if you have any), and your love for your knives is unmistakable!! And I like your opinions on BF!! I'm old, and I can say what I want, but I prefer to make and keep my friends!!
