No. I meant gleam. A sign of something. What in the serious fuck?

Let’s what in the serious fuck work through this, alright?

Here’s what you said:

Did you even gleam at all onto the fact that this was about Working Poor Families.

No question mark and unneeded Capitalization, but OK.

Here’s the definition of glean:

Full Definition of glean intransitive verb

1 : to gather grain or other produce left by reapers

2 : to gather information or material bit by bit

transitive verb

1 a : to pick up after a reaper b : to strip (as a field) of the leavings of reapers

2 a : to gather (as information) bit by bit b : to pick over in search of relevant material <gleaning old files for information>

3 : find out (as in, to find out)

Full Definition of gleam

intransitive verb

1 : to shine with or as if with subdued steady light or moderate brightness

2 : to appear briefly or faintly <a light gleamed in the distance>

transitive verb:

to cause to gleam

Now, let’s replace the word with the relevant definition to see how much sense the sentence makes:

For gleam

Did you even appear briefly/faintly at all onto the fact that this was about Working Poor Families.

For glean

Did you even find out/gather/gather this information bit by bit at all onto the fact that this was about Working Poor Families.

Which of these makes more sense? Which of these if you look at other usages of the words are used in similar sentences?

I’ll wait.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
