OK. Here are my responses (and I just want to say that the stupid word verification BETTER work for this)

1. My answer is E. Because I am optimistic for you. But reality is probably B. Everyone seems to smoke.

2. My answer is B. Because a good education is important. But reality is probably C. Not paying for your kids seems to be the norm these days.

3. My answer is E. Because he is keeping his options open, EVEN THIS LATE IN LIFE. But reality is probably A. Why not right?

4. My answer is D. (which is really the best option to be non-committal) But reality is probably E. (total buzz kill eh?)

5. My answer is A. (because Mom's love to have their 45 year old sons living with them). But reality is probably C. Because is makes his life easier.

6. My answer is most definitely C. You deserve a pleasant kiss goodnight at the end of a good date (and it will be a good date, or I will have drive 10,000 miles to kick some ass) But reality is probably A. Men tend to think with that other appendage. Idiots.

Hope I made you smile! And let me know how it goes.

Miss you bunches and think of you often!

1. E (I'm an optimist!)
2. A (expelled for his hard-hitting expose on the principal's scheme of giving good grades to kids who do menial labor at his house)
3. D (Hoo-ah!)
4. D (he's dying to talk about them, but he doesn't want to bore you.)
5. E (what a good son!)
6. C (and it will knock your SOCKS off!)

Hope springs eternal! Have a wonderful time!

Hahahaha...I'm going with straight D's just to be consistent with one E thrown in there because I can't resist and you can figure out which one I mean. I love your humor. And miss you. Hugs from PA!
