Hey, I resent that remark. I'm neither encouraging or "off the market."

I can loan you mine for a few days... God knows I can use a break.
But I know you will return it in less than 24h (if you haven't killed her by then)

You are extremely not encouraging, thus, were not included.

Yeah, we're like the cheaply made pliers that have been marked down from $9.95 to 37 cents and still aren't getting sold.

I used to be on the Scratch 'N' Dent table, but they sold the table. And the tablecloth. And the Scratch 'N' Dent sign. And the ziptie that was holding me to my packaging.

It is a balanced equation. Either you can find a good one OR a good one can find you. Happened to me. Still together 38 years later.
