I chose this forum, for I did not know where to place it. ***** I am a very old man, but in some ways, I am still very naïve and innocent. ***** I have been noticing that some people are using the word "hard-on" in a negative fashion. That is, they will say: "Tom does NOT like Raul. Tom has long had a hard-on for Raul." ***** I had always thought if you had a hard-on for someone, that meant that you liked (were excited by) him/her.
