Great rhyme and so creative, Daniel. A most fun read that truly shows off your imagination. Congrats on 10th. This is my 1st day on Soup since 12/24 am so I'm eager to do, see, read and write and, and ... I've had a great year so far and hope you have, too. It is okay that the Cowboys lost. Did you have your black eyed peas? Happy New Year XO ... CayCay
