Wow, you sound like a very intelligent reader. Thanks for those perceptive observations, which are  quite important to me.

Um, you’re welcome. But am I correct? Have you just started using lingerie and bikini models shamelessly to boost traffic to your blog?

In addition to being smart, you’re quite a clear and logical writer. Are you a professional?

Thank you, but no, I’m not. You still haven’t answered my…

I like your font, too. Very nice use of the italic.

Look here, Blog Guy, all I want to know is…

Here’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna throw four bonus Victoria’s Secret shots into this post, just to illustrate your query.

What the….

I know, nameless reader, you’re overcome with joy. Happy holidays to you and yours….

Been doing some catching up, looks like I’ve missed a few good ones. On the other hand, I’ve not needed nearly as many meds lately…

Yeah exactly… poor girls… poor in every way…. malnutritioned, not enough money to buy clothes to cover delectable body parts (mostly to men, and some women)… but then I guess bikinis and lingerie are more expensive than REAL clothes… but of course, we are talking VS here, arent we… hmmm… maybe NOT so poor then… double hmmmmmpppphhfff…
