question

Postby Bailey » Sun May 18, 2008 1:29 pm

As I've estabished I'm limited as to imagination and ability anyway; here is one that has me stumped. I belong to our local freecycle and some of the posts need some translation. Here is the latest:
My son is looking for a tent it can be a 2or3 man tent.His great
adverger of camping on weekends for entertainment and is in need of a
tent.
My question might not be obvious to others but what is an adverger? I did a google on it and got advencher, I did figure out that adventure is probably what is meant by advencher, but it doesn't make sense that adverger =adventurer.
Many people-in freecycle- ask for cloths and I'm fairly sure most are desirous of clothes, but, oh hey, I can reply to the person and ask, but I'm sure they'd be offended if I suggested they meant adventurer [then there's the troubling aspect of them figuring I have a tent I'm not willing to give up to such a worthy cause, I'm sure they'll ask if I want to donate my tent???? I have no tent!!!].

Perhaps it's supposed to be verger? But tents and church activities? I'm still troubled by the 'ad' part.....

Maybe someone can help, someone of more imagination and intellect?

ok so "I wrote :
I'm intrigued by the word adverger in your post, what exactly is that?


This is the reply I got:
if you don't have a tent why bother me

So that's that then.

You sure you don't wanna ask her what the verb is??

And second, if you do have a tent, do you get an answer?

I suggest you put up a listing for giving away an adverger. See what kind of questions you get about it. Offer a picture (of the post)...

I wrote back saying,"Who says I don't have a tent? then posted a 'taken' for my tent.

Perhaps I should ask for an adverger. I might be pleasantly surprised at what I get.
