Assunto:  to Eta "FOOD FOR THOUGHT"
 
Mensagem:  Actually I did not expect to hear that from you either, especially because it WAS an actual question. Anyway, do not worry. This forum is like a FAMILY to me, and we might use improper tones now and then, after all, that unfortunately happens on a everyday basis... 

Apologies, though, do not seem to be much in use any longer... OTOH, misunderstandings happen indeed. Nice of you to act so promptly. 

Sorry if I´ve overdone in my reply as well. 

Isn´t it interesting that, like Portuguese, both words have the same root/meaning?

"PER+DOAR" = "FOR+GIVE"

...hence, we can´t EVER keep it. We must give it! 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
