    Hi John! What a cool set of acrostics, such a wonderful tribute to the Soup and I can't help but relate ;) Can't help but like your 4th & 5th acrostic the best-- "yesterday stopped Usurping the Present" was so clever! Haha take it from a Soup addict like me ;) I truly feel blessed that I am part of this awesome community-- thanks for sharing this and I look forward to reading more of your works :) Enjoy your Soup & your day ^_^ -- nikko :)
