    Ok, sounds good. I don't think this will gather 32 forumers or evn 20 but you could make it two submissions (one male - one female). I like it.

    I'll consider it. I kinda submitted it at a time where there's fewer people active, but I'm sure people will see it eventually. Just waiting for now Smiley

    Rachel: Oh, Lord! You don't even know how his name is spelled!
    Bethany: Am I supposed to?
    Rachel: Yes!
    Bethany: I am sorry, I am not a denominator.
    Rachel: I am sure you don't even know how that's spelled either. Besides, Owen is a quite usual name nowadays. When I walk down the street, I can name at least 3 Owens at a time.
    Bethany: Then why didn't you invite one of them?
    Rachel: Because surname is such an important factor as well, you fool!
