    Like one I had a week or so...frankenstein came over to my house to play with my kids...and I let him. But he was playing too rough(imagine that) and I had to put him out. He threw a fit in my yard after I scolded him, and choked my neighbor to death. Heck, I don't even have neighbors...haha.

    I'll bet Taiwan is awesome to see. And get ready for another wild ride if jasmine tea affects you like it does me. I'm not sure if I want to drink anymore. The dreams aren't always pleasant for me.

    This is really good for number four! You have created an image that feeds the imagination, so that each person fills in the rest of the picture in their own way.

    You make this style seem simple, this is one form I can't seem to get the hang of. Maybe if I keep reading yours the style might sink in.
