This blog was written and posted yesterday by my friend, Beca Lewis. Everything Beca writes is awesome, this post is exceptional among the awesome - just like you are exceptional among the awesome.

Here's the first paragraph, followed by a link that will take you to the complete post on her site. Enjoy, then tell her I sent you.
