  2. M! Good God! You’re reading my stuff here?
    You are right, I gotta be more careful.
    All of a sudden these people came out of the woodwork like a dozen Narutos and threw more rocks than I could duck. It waz awful. I’m black and blue.
    I’d have saved myself embarassment with the fun one about the lady that dumped hot coffee if I’d done snopes on it first.
    Hell, I was just funnin anyway, but holy crap, all of a sudden guns blazing away!
    Nice to hear from you. -grim
