Are far behind
No matter where our paths may wind

What’s so odd?

Love the live fire from Mr. K’s rifle over the head of the guys doing the low crawl. Hope he doesn’t slip! These guys need a dose of meds – anyone willing to share?

You even managed to get a shoe (well, combat boot) shot in. Impressive.

Is jumping through fire for graduation wrong ? We jumped off the bridge over the river for leaving school. They’ve got a by-law against it now though.

If they’d made me do that at my graduation, I would have gone up in flames. Stupid poly-blends.

Well, my graduation was not THAT different, really… at least it doesn’t seem thus, between the fog… the alcohol fog that is. A friend and myself sneaked over to where they were keeping the bubbly wine for the celebration after the ceremony and downed a couple of bottles ourselves. So what I do remember from my graduation is wrapped in a foggy, happy, laughingly soft memory…

My graduation day was nothing like this… we were just bunch of really-green-behind-the-ears kids… Frankly, I still dont know how I graduated… cant remember anything of what I majored in… or maybe I do, but these meds arent letting me think….

Ewwwwww! Shra, did you see a doctor about that green stuff behind your ears? I’m sure there’s an ointment or something…

I always wondered how and why Reuters has photographers everywhere. Isn’t the U.S. in a war against terror? Sooo these photographers… Are they usually “Disposable”?

And here I thought really-green-behind-the-ears was a typical American slang for “being naive”.. No, I am not taking any potshots at you guys… I mean it in full respect… I dont thank God everyday for Hollywood/Bollywood, for nothing!!

There’s being “wet behind the ears”, implying you were just born yesterday. Or, where I’m from, we have the charming expression “you’re not as green as you are cabbage looking”, suggesting that although you look stupid, you aren’t.

What a colourful (colour-foul?) discussion!! I am just green with envy!!

Nevertheless, I’d kindly propose we stop this thing right now! We are ALL learning a bit too much from reading the blog, which is, as you all know well, against house rules.

Ok, so what’s the correct phrasae which means “being naive”??

Shra, I guess you haven’t discovered the shoe post I just published….

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

It is “green behind the ears” meaning ‘someone who is naive. I understood that the first time and now I’ve just googled it to be sure because all this back and forth about greeness had me…had me…wait, what’s the phrase when someone is puzzled?

:D

E: flabbergasted? at a loss? dumbfounded? How about just plain nutty, batty, looney…
