I'm enjoying this series, Gerard. But I'm feeling a bit bad for the rabbit...
Seana - Thanks. I feel for the rabbit too. Probably not as bad as Tommy Hale did, though. He's still friends with my da. Apparently he teared up a little after my da handed him this edition.
You seem a very intelligent fella,Tommy.Those big glasses and all.
It always works.Sigh.
It does make me feel a little better to hear that a tear or two was shed for the rabbit.
Marco - It's a line I've heard many times myself. Spent most of my school life being accused of not living up to my potential. But I'm not really a genius. Just short-sighted.
Seana - Happy to console.
