CB: I guess its a matter of the grass being greener, but your day sounds so nice and relaxing to me. ;)

RJ: Call me twisted and cruel, but I literally laughed out loud over the "stomach cramps...too many cranberry tablets" comment. I know...what a mean friend I am.

CB and RJ: I love you two so much!
