A)I don't know what that is, but if it involves his colon, I'm scared.
B)MY GI system?
C)How do you shuffle them? I do the classic 'little kid' shuffle - the bridge - you know that one? lets discuss.
D)You should sing to yourself as well.
E)TWO?! Do you have any more canadian chocolate left? I'll have to send you a new batch!
F) How nice of you!
G) LOL - this one is the best of them all, by the way.
H) What's facebook?
I)I used to have one of those do-hikies in my locker and we'd play at lunch!
J) I see you are getting good at that - holy!
K) How many? i suck at push ups.
L)coins? in which way? did you wash your hands afterwards?
L2) I guess docs don't know their alphabet ;'P
M)How about Ottawa getting their ass kicked out of the series right away? that sucked.
N)anything fun happen?
O) are they still relevant? if it were say, a computer technology book from '01 it would be trash - does it work the same way?
Q) Any Dears, perhaps?
R)Did you see my picture?
S) 5 flights? you're insane! One bernd and his brother had a bet to see who could win in a race up to our condo - that would be 22 flights - his brother won by a few seconds but bernd blames it on the fact that he 'paced himself'
T)You have an internet system that does that? you can't just go check?
U)You probably should you dirty little student you!
V)Were they better than MY faces?
W) That was nice of you.
