... And this is why that one table leg is wonky.

Yup, I prefer to dive right into things and skip introductions, instructions, all all those beginning "in" words. My writing is the same way, but twice a week I am chained to a chair and forced to edit my work into something resembling the English language.

*waves to one and all ... Except that creeping looking guy in the red sweater who has been lurking for the past five minutes. There is just something off about him.*
