The chances of my getting pregnant are right up there w/ Sugar's. Will
get some pennyroyal plants next time I'm at McDade's. It's a mint
right?? So in pots it will go. Sweet? That's a laugh. My mother used to
tell me as a child she couldn't understand why the mosquitoes liked me,
it's not like I was sweet or anything. Her words people.

thanks Zem!
