Words are funny.
From the VRBO site Lyman had an inquiry: "How much would it cost to rent this precious condo?"
Lyman told me: "Well, if they're going to be sarcastic about it, why should I respond at all?"
J: "What do you mean?"
L: "Precious condo."
J: "That could mean that she likes it, Lyman. We might not describe it that way (yo mama), but she might."
