    In response to number 37… I remember walking through the parking lot with you at target, and you insisted that we have a couples quarrel in front of the oncomming chinese family. Before I was allowed to agree, you started yelling at me about how I was looking at another woman in target and you were going to move out that night… then you slammed my car door.

    a great article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
