    I'm afraid Ron is correct. From now on you will only be allowed to post to yourself. :wink:

    In English it MIGHT mean that!
    I am the one who is always being told not to worry so much about ambiguity! And here's what I get!!
    For the record:
    I don't like talking to myself. I find myself pretty predictable! So the conversation goes:
    I knew you'd say that.
    So did I......

    We were only teasing you. You will hear "so did I" used that way, and people understand what it means. :wink:
