Ah, Tim, the unrepentant giving "short shrift" to those hoping for closure. This one had a bit of a twist to it. Thanks for entering the contest

Can't blame the guy for loosing his appetite...A Shakespeare read before the moment certainly makes for some introspection. Goodluck for the contest, Tim!
