"said basically", was my way of saying, I implied that in their minds. If I had spoken that sentence/explanation to you, it would have come across perfectly. So don't worry about mistaking it for what I factually said, that's just the internet talking. I never ever said something so lude or direct. I only lightly made a suggestion in the midst of smiles and drinks one night at a party. It went over very well, and was not awkward.
