By the way: I was trying to make fun of myself, not you, when I said the construction "completely doesn't work". I thought it did, and said so! When Simon said there was a "mild problem", it made me think about how I'm rarely so polite.
Also by the way: Simon is a friend of mine, so we always joke around. If I say annoying stuff when he's around, that might be the reason. I will try to restrain myself.
