You've cut so much context, left so many dangling prepositions, you've
left me confused as to what we're discussing.  I suspect you've become
confused, too - the original scenario had nothing to do with

Maybe later today, I'll try and reassemble the context and answer you.
But it really would be helpful if you would be less obfuscatory.
