Carapace is the new word of the day

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty AR LLC PB00068179


Carapace is the new word of the day.

Don’t know about you but I’ve had people do this.  Haven’t had it happen lately but tomorrow is another day.  Have you ever talked to people and they seem to do this?  Oh I guess you would want to know the meaning of the word before you answered.  So the meaning of (kar’e pas’) is a protective covering over all or part of the back of certain animals, as the upper shell of the turtle, armadillo, crab, etc.  So have you ever had a conversation with a person only to be sure they have pulled their head into their shell and shut you out?  What say you?

Hi James,

Many times I wanted a  Carapace just to get away for a while.

I did'nt know the word as usual. But what else is new. LOL

Have a great day in Rogers.

Best, Clint McKie

  I think those are the same people who don't want to come to grips with what the housing market and equity means to them personally.

You mean like my husband does when I talk? When he sticks his fingers in his ears and begins to whine like Jerry Lewis on drugs?

Reminds me of the guy who was flying from Japan to Boston and was detained at LAX for wearing a bullet proof vest.

Does it count if I pull the carapace over my head in bed, to keep the monsters away?  I hope so anyway.
