Just to clarify my pen-name - 'Depends'

Someone just told me that 'Depends' is a form of underwear for adult incontinence! I promise you, my choice of pen-name has nothing whatsoever to do with that! I've never heard of adult diapers called 'Depends', believe it or not! I've lived most of my life in other English-speaking countries, arriving in the States a few years ago, and that is one bit of American culture that I'm quite glad has passed me by!

'Depends' was my idea of a play on words ('it all depends'; 'thrown in the deep end', 'being in deep water', etc. etc.). Shows how a little ignorance on my part can go a long way!
