    I don't think this would really apply to any of the current contests going on right now... but I'm glad you thought it was contest worthy :)

    Very clever, at least it wasn't by text, that is even worse and even more impersonal.

    Yes, that's the problem with texting it seems. You can't always detect the intended emotions behind the words... it could come across as being cold and heartless if you're not careful. Thanks for reading Rick!
