… as in “incroyable,” the French version of “incredible.” We shouldn’t always be bound by the rules of language. Neither should our makeup. Words can only express so much, and at times language seems to offer a too narrow range of meanings, symbols, or significations to truly capture our feelings.

Christ on a cracker! I’ve just noticed some grammar and language issues in some of the earlier posts! I could blame it on wordpress for not saving correctly, but that wouldn’t be very fair. My beezy you beaus and belles. I will edit.

In the meantime, edit your errors with Desert Essence Facial Scrub Gentle Stimulating. It’ll give you a thorough cleanse of this horrid pollen New York has bestowed upon us. This is a very nice scrub for those with sensitive skin.
