Thanks yet again, I'm printing it out right now for tonight's reading session!
Finally caving into the pressure, eh? I don't blame you, and I congratulate you for holding out as long as you did. I promise that the story is well worth the wait.
And yes, the deep south is much worse than it's portrayed in Hollywood. I should know, since I've lived here for most of my life (and I'm thoroughly sick of it!). One day, when I've saved up enough money, I'd like to get the hell out of here and move back west, to Texas again, or perhaps Arizona or New Mexico.
