Good Evening.

First of all I must explain that I was forced to come here against my will by someone who shall remain nameless, but her initials are "Kate"!!!

The reason she forced me here was because I was asking how come we don't get a day in lef? The reason I was asking that is because, as we all know, the correct pronunciation of lieutenant is leftenant. Why?

Sithee!! I told you it was "toth"!!!

Please excuse me I haven't had my medication yet!!!
