    It's on the list. We've covered it.

    I thought the same thing when I read it. It would have been a whole lot worse if you had repeated yourself but put completely different items up. Then we'd know you were senile, too. Maybe you've been sucking those pest chems in the truck while no one's watching. Hmmmmmm

    "I was like huffing some Vikane, man, and I looked up and this giant spider was, like, right over my head."

    "Bummer, dude. Was it like a real spider?"

    "No, man. I was like death, you know?"

    "You mean I'm......?"

    "Totally. We both are."

    "Well that sucks."
