Ah very good- "Thanks by the insults" is perfect Esperantese for "I apologise", "I was wrong" or the loathsome "my bad". The second line means loosely "I'm outta here".

Huny, everybody in the world speaks Esperanto now. Been that way since 1963. Didn't you get the memo?

I just checked my inbox and did see where someone had indeed sent the memo to me back in 1970. That was right about the time my head started being up in the clouds.
And huny thinks to herself..I often wonder if that is why people call me an airhead??...

LA PALABRA DEL DÍA

nefelibata

Se dice de la persona soñadora, que vive en las nubes.

El poeta nicaragüense Rubén Darío usó esta palabra en su poema 'Epístola', que escribió en homenaje a la esposa de Leopoldo Lugones:

«[...]

Que ando, nefelibata, por las nubes... Entiendo.

Que no soy hombre práctico en la vida... ¡Estupendo!

[...]».

Y volvió a usarla en 'Mar Latino':

«[...]

Nefelibata contento,

creo interpretar

las confidencias del viento

la tierra y el mar...

[...]».

Se trata de un cultismo (voz de creación culta, no nacida en el habla popular) que se formó con las palabras griegas 'nephéle' (nube) y 'bates' (el que anda). No conocemos ninguna referencia sobre su uso antes de Darío, que vivió entre 1867 y 1916. *Nefelibata* nunca había aparecido en ningún diccionario cuando fue incluida por primera vez en el Diccionario de la Real Academia, en 1984.

En portugués, nefelibata se registra con el mismo origen y significado a partir de 1899.

Above all, always keep an open mind

I thought of that but was afraid things might fall out.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is "chop"?

it's my mark, like an unschooled person making an X if they can't sign their name, a small joke no one caught. Perhaps too obvious. I think it originated in Chinese as a stamped signature.

(quote)CHOP; A Chinese seal (Chinese "章" (Pinyin "zhāng"), Japanese "判子" ("hanko"), Korean 도장 ("dojang")) is a seal or stamp used in east Asia to prove identity on documents, contracts, art, and so forth. Chinese seals are typically made of stone, sometimes of wood, and are typically used with a special red ink paste (Chinese "朱砂" "zhūshā"). In Japan it is known as a hanko or inkan. ...(/quote)

That would make it all the harder to give someone a piece of your mind.

On a positive note, it would make it all the easier to see what was on his mind.
