JK, JK, I'm just playing here. It seems that you have a good sense of humor, and I'm the class clown. Hehe!
Sorry, I only did a quick skim for proof reading... I know 'grammar' is spelled with an a. I swear, I spell better when I'm inebriated...

I get my choice of diction from many older books I read. I hate young adult books.

(warning: no emoticon here at end)
To better clarify, yes, this is what I primarily meant. The clarity from body language gives much more detail, many times, I think, more than even spoken word does. I am really good at reading body language, facial expressions, etc... I know when my girlfriend is upset by something, she doesn't have to tell me for me to know. The answer is in her beautiful evil witch eyes...

also, the emoticon taunting isn't much appreciated. I say it helps, but I function just fine without it.
