Social service sounds like a plan, but you never know.
Update: Please check the post date after you’ve begun your knee-jerk reaction. I thank you all for your concern, but enough with the e-mails already. It was nice to have a laugh at your expense though, and thank you for playing. You’ve been fabulous.
