I do believe the pump is being primed! With the entry of Thomas Smith, Esq. into our contest, we now have three entries. Ahhh, let the trickle turn to flood! Enter the contest yourself by pulling down the details from the menu bar and following them as if they mattered!

“Hi Thorn, I saw you riding your bike Sat. night.”
“You didn’t write that? Why did you…” She turned away in anger.
“REPLY” came right up. He didn’t feel a need to answer but she kept pressing him. She then approached him as if in an assaultive manner.

He nodded yes.
After a minute she said “I want you out.”
He knew and nodded yes again.
She picked up the day’s newspaper.
