      1. Really remarkable how "wirey" it is, if that's even a word. If not, it's now a word. Posted 2 years ago

        @Ferdy, you can pretend that "wirey" is a word. Or, you could use the actual word "wiry" instead. Personally, I think adding an 'e' is better as it bucks the conventions of spelling... Did I just womansplain?
