  1. I enjoyed that. Did you mean to pluralize rhythm in #46?

  2. Lylycat on said:

    For #69 did you mean kisses, or did you really mean buses?

  3. I probably meant buses, but I bristle at the spelling exception to this plural so I forcibly do it poorly. Kisses are rarely timed.

  4. #65 isn’t true any more, but it was at time of writing.
