Oh, this looks like another good one. I used your last one to help me out of a writer's slump. Such fun to work with! Will keep this one for my next slump to get me going again.

Thanks for doing these!

Oh fun. Maybe I can actually get one written this time around!

I couldn't come up with a thing that worked with May's.
