Here’s to mcerurial, inconsistent, fickle, capricious, unpredictable luck, our whimsical friend. SG, I think, is the little sister of empathy. Your writing pays tribute to the gift you’ve received.

Dina: thought the fact that we need a law for this shows how coommn it is. Yikes.herman: hey same here. It could easily happen to any of us who are out on the night.Lupin: it’s a state law. The friends will not be charged as accessories because there’s no pre-meditation. And yes self-defense is allowed but the evidence and witnesses will obviously need to back you up.
