    1. Waving Paula! Love the comments. So great to have you here! :)

  2. STOP THE PRESS! Insane asylum worker? OH MY GOSH! A massive story just plopped into my head!

    1. ROLF. Can't wait to brain storm that one!!! I'm making the coffee!! :)

  3. I'm with you, Jaime. I love the insane asylum worker! Wait--they work at an insane asylum, right, they're NOT insane!? Ha.

    1. Right, OR, maybe we just THINK they are, but really "normal" becomes a little on the edge?? Hmmm. This has great potential! :)
