  5. You may smile when you see tomorrow’s post. Your “there are no words” comment is the most eerily prophetic that I’ve had since starting this site. People are going to think either that you hacked my “Drafts” queue or that I am leaking posts to you …

  6. Well, as for the first idea, would that I knew HOW. And, naturally, the second is just not even worth discussing.

    Fun! I’m beyond intrigued…
