Ok, We're Going to Make You All Sick

But the General just sent me his list of 86 things he loves about me. I was going to bump my list to 100 this morning, because after we spent the day together, he did about a million more things I totally love, and then last night when I finally came back to bed at 2am after one dandy of a crying jag, he sat up with me, crying too, and we had such a good talk that I didn't even care it was 2AM. But now I kind of like that 86 is a magical number. So I'm leaving my list alone. And this is his 86 things he loves about me. (Excuse me while I blush)

*choke*

(Heimlich, please)

That's the sound of you two leaving the Sick and Gooey Glecks all asphyxiating in your dust.

That brought a tear to my eye, especially the General's. This is what love is supposed to be.

If I'm Jerry Lee Lewis, this means I'd better find some matches and a piano.
