Well...thanks for that, mate!
I may not be pro (yet...
), but I'll take that under consideration....
BTW--You may recall how, in Rendevous With Destiny
, Simon's use of the nickname makes Sam flinch.
Also...I must confess, I seem to have, in "RWD", inadvertently anticipated Ezri's constant torment of poor Sam in Zero Sum Game
. Again, "eccentric" Ezri vs. "straight-man" Sam--shades of Holmes-Watson, or 007-Q.
