Meg, you wrote one that didn't put anyone in a potentially lethal situtation! Are you feeling alright? Seriously, I loved it. Great characterization, and wonderful humor.
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee. John Donne,
