I tell you something; even if you wished to offer it to me i would have to decline, such would be the cost of sending it over by armoured transport and security guards

Oh Nando,

Your witty and well thought out words startled me with the impulse to cope with a new day! Thank you so much for that, my dear friend!

'With a stature like yours' - what used to be my stature has meanwhile crumbled to a humble shadow of my former self.

Now I too pity the poor guy who once had to tote and aim this monster.
