  4. Funny! I didn't scroll down because I wanted to read the poem and try to "figure" it out myself...I laughed when I scrolled and saw the words: plight of the booger! You're a hoot! Here I was thinking it was all profound and stuff :)

  14. And a perfect example of how an illustration can take an inelegant topic and make it elegant, but words have to work so much harder to do the same, ne c'est pas?

  18. I fight back the tears as I read this- I think Willie "Wordsworth" Baronet should be your new title!
    I was in your city for the past couple of days- my son was having some serious surgery there but he is doing great. I want to go back and ride those DART tains!
