    Becki, no, no I didn't!

    I must have picked up the wrong English word I guees...'literally'. 'So to speak'? it that the one?
    It is 'hypothesis', a sort of bank account in my heart to save my wishes for Daisuke.

    What I wanted to write is, I decided not to expect instant results from Dai. Not too many wishes, such as winning every time at every competition. My very best wish is, as you can easily imagine, Dai winning the gold at Sochi. And a lot of his fans, including me, understand he needs more time to get adjusted to his new body without a screw in the knee and get back quads. Tha's is why I would prefer rather wait, and save my wishes till the right time come.

    Sorry, picking up the word 'literally' must have been confusing to you...

    Do not blush. Literally is one of the most incorrectly used words in the English language, both in Great Britain

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/r...wrong-use-word

    and the US

    http://articles.boston.com/2011-07-1...ists-character

    The Boston.com article wonders whether it has been so misused that it may not have any meaning at all

    Literally the most misused word
    Cover StoryThe adverb clutters our speech to the point where it is in danger of losing its literal meaning

    I like the instinct of several posters here to wish for a medal for Joubert. I will join you in hoping that he lands on the podium on his home ice. Wouldn't that be lovely.

    But I still hope for gold for Daisuke!

    Dai to land clean quads in both short and long. Perfect clean short and long from Abbot.

    Best whishes to Dai and Abbot with huge artistic talent.
