We always refer to our valuable and valued freelancers by the freelancers' full names, Adam Daigle. We would never devalue such assets with words like "he", "she", "they", or variations thereof. Also note that in all future correspondence with freelancers, we will refer to freelancers only be the freelancers' first names, and never in the second person. "You" is, after all, another pronoun.

Furthermore, it's company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a [redacted]... always use the indefinite article: a [redacted], never your [redacted].

I like to squash bugs too, because, you know, they are gross, but they make this popping sound when you squash them just right. Not the crunching sound, a real popping sound, and it squirts out the stuff that's inside of it, which is usually green, 'cause bugs like to eat plants, and plants are green, most of the time, 'cause this guy Clor-de-Phil made em that way. What a funny name that guy has. Anybody have any candy-coated grasshoppers?

I heard that line when I used to live in Louisville KY. I said I didn't care for college basketball and one of my players cried out, "We know what all those words mean, but not when they're put into a sentence like that!"

Maybe I am the last one in the Paizoverse to get wise to this fact, but I did not know our Customer Service Carebear was expecting. So, congratulations, Sara Marie, and don't worry about the cookies! You can always blame it on the kid!
