Hotep Maret,

I was not disagreeing with what he posted :) I have seen the wikipedia material as well elswhere in scholarly sources.

I always found those additional examples quite interesting and wanted to share.

Hotep Kai Imakhu,

I didn't think you were. :) The webpage you posted actually offers a little more in the way of examples from most eras. Both are still interesting. I was simply pointing out what I thought it was and where I knew of an example.

Senebty!

Ok, this makes sense now. My original thought was to leave the offerings out overnight and then clean up the next day, usually leaving out things that wouldn't spoil. So it confused me when Netjer were telling me "Drink up! C'mon!" I'd take maybe one sip and one bite and feel awkward about it.

Finally they got the idea through my thick skull and now I say something about eating and drinking with family.

I often leave the curtains open after senut so they can watch me practice tai chi. I guess that would be an action offering? And Heru does not have to worry about me offering fish, because bleh!
