flying foxes(the fish not the bat)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Oh, I see what you mean.:) It's the false SAEs here that seem rarer than the true ones.:)
