I'll have to think about it - imagine what was said - and then reconstruct it into a suitable text-type; reported speech, a journalistic type text, an interview if you want to be interactive, et al.

What I said only exists in the memory / imagination of myself and others and I am no longer in that act of saying. There is no longer any sensory input (hearing and in post literate terms "hearing" with the eyes "reading") into this, the event that is described is all in the mind / intellect.
"αἴκα" (The Spartan Ephors' reply to Philip II of Macedon) is even better than "nuts" (General Anthony McAuliffe reply to General Heinrich Freiherr von Lüttwitz).

Interesting thread. I have been working against the clock, the book by Juan Hernandez is due back at Multnomah University.
