If you were writing a novel and you wanted one of the main characters to take a long, slow luxurious deep breath, then stiffly squeeze up her shoulders and then just push the hell out of that breath from the back of her throat, what kind of a sound would that make? Would it look like "uuuuuuuuhgnktchhuh" or "hahhhhhkuhhhhchcch"? Because I don't know how to write that sound. The sound that really says, "I'm DONE and what would I do without my two pals that were here tonight to help me organize and collate and package the Solar print exchange portfolio that was due on the winter solstice - December 21, 2009?" Well, that's the sound I want you to hear before I thank your two Leftover comrades, Katherine Jones and Linda Schrock who made that happen for me tonight.
Thank you SO much Katherine and Linda!
