The original conceit was

So far, mine is: Made many mistakes, learned a lot.

Lori, nothing to do with six words, just wanted to rub it in that Eddie has added another day to his Austin stay. 3 all total. When Kat and I saw him in Vegas last year, he did a giraffes-playing-charades skit that was LOLSHIFDAICBPCAAHHing* funny. Pray he does it again.

That's bound to make a mighty big crash. . . .
